 New Multi Rotor One Generator Vertical Axis Wind Turbines

This patent is aiming to design a system of multi low rating VAWTs connected to single high rating generator through common transmission (gearbox). The higher rating AC generators are more efficient in comparison to low rating generators. Also, an anticipated significant cost reduction is another advantage due to the fact that only one controller and inverter are needed for the proposed model, and consequently, the reduction of the required associated circuitry reduces the overall cost and increase the efficiency of the system. The proposed model has a simple cost-efficient breaking mechanism based on phasing-out some of the individual wind units during gust conditions.
