Exceptional efficiency charged with smart programming results in unmatched performance.

Capable of providing enough power for up to ten average American homes, the Mobile Power Station has been designed to excel in low wind-speed environments commonly found where people live and work.

The starting point for making good power from the wind is having a blade that effectively captures the kinetic energy that passes through the swept area of the rotor. The Uprise Energy design team modeled over 3 million unique blade shapes before selecting the one that demonstrated the best overall characteristics. The 10ft (blue) blade will be used on the Mobile Power Station and the 14ft (red) will be used on permanently sited installations.

The Mobile Power Station is purposely designed to extract as much energy from the wind as possible and keep losses to a minimum during the delivery process. Every component of the wind turbine has been examined in excruciating detail and refined to achieve the highest possible performance. The culmination of these efforts results in meaningful gains across a range of systems and establishes a new bar for wind energy performance.

As opposed to its traditional counterparts that fight Mother Nature, the Mobile Power Station gracefully dances with the wind. Hundreds of times per second, on-board electronics check to ensure the relationship between rotor speed and wind speed is optimized for maximum power generation. In a market that is typically differentiated by a few percentage points, this unique approach that exploits the exponential power in wind gusts, has the potential to produce up to 400% more power than that of currently available wind machines.


The most significant breakthrough in increasing energy capture is the ability of the Mobile Power Station to "Dance with the Wind"


Dancing With the Wind technology allows the Mobile Power Station to operate effectively over a wider range of wind speeds, and thereby taking advantage of the exponential power in wind (cube root rule). This graphic illustrates the energy in a wind gust that goes from 8 to 24mph and back to 8 again. What it shows is that the amount of time the gust is between 16 and 24mph is approximately 1/4 that of the 0-8mph range, yet it contains over 11 times the energy.

Uprise vs. Conventional | Most conventional wind turbines are designed to operate at a steady speed and therefore, when a gust of wind comes along, they will spill that energy so as not to overload or over-rev. The Uprise wind turbine, on the other hand, dances with the wind, moving in harmony with the changing wind speeds and maintaining the optimum relationship between wind and rotor speed. This feature has the potential to generate multiple times the power of a conventional wind turbine and improves with variability in the wind regime.

Unprecedented aerodynamic efficiency is complimented with proprietary programming that instructs the rotor to move in harmony with the wind, effectively capturing the exponential energy available as wind speed increases.

 

Low Cost Power

In a nominal wind speed of 4.5m/s (10mph), power will be generated for less than utility power rates, solar energy and a fraction the cost of diesel powered generators and it only gets better - very quickly - with increased wind speed due to the exponential power available.

 

This is what sets the Uprise Energy wind turbine apart from others:

  • Proprietary programming instructs the machine to “Dance With the WindTM” capturing the exponential energy available in wind gusts by maintaining the optimum relationship between rotor speed and wind speed
  • Full-Foil blade shape with unmatched aerodynamic efficiency, designed without constraints, for low wind speed performance
  • Custom alternator engineered for low speed efficiency (negligible cogging)
  • Drivetrain engineered to minimize parasitic losses

 

At the core of the machine is the previously developed and US Dept of Energy award-winning STAR Blade®, now with an updated design and supported with 40 notable innovations designed to increase power output, reduce parasitic losses, and improve accessibility and affordability. A number of breakthroughs in wind turbine design allow the Ue.MPS to precisely match the changes in wind speed and “dance with the wind” as opposed to its traditional counterparts that fight Mother Nature. In a market that is typically differentiated by a few percentage points, the unique approach of the Ue.MPS has the potential to produce 400% more power than that of currently available wind machines.
