>> Performance of EST for wind power generators

  • EST always keeps the irregular rotation speed, which changes according to the strength of wind, at proper rpm, and transmits power to the generator.
  • It automatically, steplessly changes gear against the change in the power source(windpower) without a separate speed change controller.
  • It is possible to change the output direction suitably for the direction of the rotation of the power source(windpower); Automatic stepless gear change for both directions.

>> Effect of the application of EST for wind power generators

It is possible to be applied to various types of wind power generators to generate highly efficient energy.

>> The EST basic system for wind power generators

  • Transmission method :
    A stepless transmission (EST system) without a separate transmission control unit

  • Transmission range :
    Can be set for Min. ~Max based on the needs of the user

  • Power transfer :
    Major power transfer is ensured due to the gear method.

  • Transmission control :
    According to the blade rpm and the gemerator's torque, the EST system performs automatics variable transmission on its own (output with a certain rpm and torque suitable for the power generation).

  • Applied system :
    Gear Box structure (can be applicable both for the horizontal and vertical types of wind power generators)
    Structure : Blade + EST + Generator

  • Applied effect :
    1) Highly efficient power generation is possible as the appropriate level of RPM necessary for power generation can be maintained constantly through the stepless transmission of EST in irregular wind speeds.
    2) Stable power generation is possible without any additional stabilizing unit in high speed winds.
    3) The enhanced durability and minimization of the blade are possible as the system can carry out stepless transmission while responding to the load torque of the power generator.
    4) Cost saving for the wind power generator
    5) Realization of high economic feasibility due to the enhanced accumulative generation capacity

>> The EST basic system + optional system for wind power generators

  • An optional system that can be selected for the EST basic system :
    A system that automatically controls the torque at the time of stepless transmission.

  • Functions of the optional system
    The conditions of the blade and generation capacity, which change moment-by-moment in line with the wind speed, can be handled through the automatic transmission torque control in a precise and optimal way by the sensor's detection. In such manner, when the speed of wind increases, the automatic transmission torque intensity can be enhanced, making it possible to generate high efficiency within the available torque range.

  • Applied system : Structure of 'Gear Box + Control system'

  • Applied effect :
    1) Same as those of the basic system
    2) Capable of additional power generation within the available torque when the wind speed increases.
    3) For the additional generation load when the wind speed rises, the system will respond with stepless transmission to secure the stability of the wind pwer generation system.
    4) Possible to provide an immediate and large-scale power generation when the wind speed is high.
    5) Realization of extremely superior economical feasibility even in high-speed winds.

>> The EST for wind power

  1. The EST Output rpm
    - Blade rpm x EST ratio = EST output rpm (Max rpm is input rpm of generator)

  2. The EST Output Torque
    - A Basic system :
    (Blade Torque (1rpm)÷EST ratio) x 0.7(70% efficiency)
    = EST output torque of Basic system
    - An Optional system :
    EST output torque of Basic system x Blade rpm
    = EST output torque (Min~Max) of Optional system
