When it’s windy enough, the ENESSERE Pegasus Wind Turbine is perfectly suitable for a standard domestic use.
The shape of our wind turbine exploits the wind anywhere it comes from, with no need for reorientation, and it only needs minimum startup speed for it to work.
ENESSERE Pegasus Wind Turbine produces over 4 kW of istant power via its alternator, equal to an annual energy production of about 5000 kWh with an average wind speed of 6 m/s.
ENESSERE Pegasus Wind Turbine makes very little noise (about 38 dBA).
Clean electricity thus obtained by the wind turbine can be used both on-grid or off-grid.
Concerning the first case, the turbine is connected to the national grid, thus allowing the sale of energy produced by the ENESSERE Pegasus Wind Turbine to the operator (in this case the national grid operator (GSE) must be informed beforehand).
However, in the off-grid mode, the turbine is isolated from the grid and the energy produced is stored into storage batteries that can be used in the turbine installation site. This way, stored energy won’t be sold to the operator but set aside to cope with the user’s needs via a specific, suitably sized battery pack that ensures the proper charge level and use.
CONSTRUCTION AND DESIGN CHARACTERISTICS
Beauty is precision. Proportion. Harmonious forms. Those of Pegasus aren’t accidental, they’re inspired by the golden ratio. This is why we’re conscious of how unique it is.
The golden ratio, also known as the ‘s constant or divine proportion, can be found in many shapes in nature and is instinctively associated by man to the idea of beauty and harmony. At ENESSERE we started from this idea to create a one-of-a-kind wind turbine.
ENESSERE Pegasus Wind Turbine‘s design is the result of in-depth aerodynamic studies by a team of wind energy engineers, made real by the expert hands of our craftsmen.
The tower of our wind generator is made in iron, subsequently coated with a triple layer painting, available in various liveries. The same paint is also used for the wings, which feature a carbon structure just like the spokes that support them.
Just like the ENESSERE Hercules Wind Turbine, the wings design for the Pegasus uses a particular profile called NACA, which optimizes the performances of the turbine.
The wings on the ENESSERE Pegasus Wind Turbine weigh a little more than 11 kg and extend for about 4 meters, just like the traditional composite material wings, but at the same time their design ensures a unique and exclusive aesthetic value to our wind generator.
Golden Ratio 1.618
To communicate with the environment and the space: this is the essence of the Pegasus design, a vertical axis mini wind turbine totally made in carbon. A light and efficient structure that embodies our very concept of modernity. This is because true beauty, for us at ENESSERE, is by definition timeless, therefore always modern.
Pegasus Wind Turbine is a wind generator that embodies the synthesis of our most advanced research, the maximum expression of technology applied to the wind. Its main characteristics are minimalism of shapes and light materials, which ensure top-notch performances.
Thanks to the harmony of its proportions, this mini vertical axis wind turbine changes the perception of the architectural space and becomes its protagonist, even through multiple repeated installations.
The future is here with ENESSERE Pegasus Wind Turbine.
The Pegasus wind turbine is available in several chromatic variations which take inspiration from the environment and match with the surrounding. The three textural-coloured towers differently combined with five wings variants inspired to earth elements, create a selection of both iconic and winning combinations.
Every place has a soul. To capture its essence also means to conceive tailor-made and exclusive solutions. This is why Pegasus Wind Turbine is offered in a pretty much limitless range of chromatic customizations.
Our wind turbine can indeed be painted with different liveries, in order to better harmonize with every type of industrial or living context. In order to better interpret the needs of each of our customers. That’s because to offer a tailor-made and exclusive service is our greatest satisfaction.
AN INTELLIGENT WIND TURBINE
ENESSERE Pegasus Wind Turbine is a wind turbine with a dual function: generating and using. This is why our wind turbine features an artificial intelligence that optimizes its operations in all different working conditions. First off, the energy that usually dissipates in the braking phase of the rotor is recovered and used directly to power up the panel, thus decreasing energy consumption.
Most of all, ENESSERE Pegasus Wind Turbine controller features artificial intelligence that lets it “follow the wind”: this way, generating performances are improved by decreasing the issues connected to the rotor’s inertia.
ENESSERE Pegasus Wind Turbine is also the only wind turbine that doesn’t just produce energy if there’s enough wind – the user can start it at the desired speed even if there is no wind.
SAFETY AND RELIABILITY
At ENESSERE, safety is always at the forefront. This is why our ENESSERE Pegasus vertical axis mini Wind Turbine features many sensors that can become operational if some parameters have abnormal values:
- a speed sensor (anemometer) that stops the turbine if wind speed is too high, therefore potentially dangerous;
- a dual revolutions sensor (RF and inverter) that stops it whenever it goes above 200 RPM;
- a vibration sensor that activates by braking the system whenever it vibrates excessively, thus avoiding any damage to the structure that might compromise its operations;
- a temperature sensor;
- a dual brake (mechanical and electrical). The mechanical brake in particular, installed in addition to the inverter and hydraulically controlled, has been designed to start operating even when the panel isn’t powered up, in order to ensure maximum safety to the wind turbine.
THE ELECTRONIC COMPONENTS IN ENESSERE PEGASUS WIND TURBINE
The electronic components of our home wind turbine have been created thanks to Autoelettric’s years of experience in the automotive field and the essential contribution of specialized wind energy engineers. Using trustworthy quality components used in the mass production was a specific choice made by our wind energy engineers. Thanks to this know-how, the controller of the Pegasus mini wind turbine was created with highly reliable quality components, thus ensuring our wind generators an artificial intelligence that optimizes wind exploitation and improves performances.
Finally the electromechanical components feature a careful selection of the generator, the real beating heart of the product, with the intention of finding the right combination of rotor size and adequate electricity production of the alternator. Perfect balance of form and substance.
MANAGING THE WIND TURBINE
Our turbine communicates with the user. By using sensors applied to our wind turbines, at ENESSERE we started exploring new innovation territories towards a real artificial intelligence for our products and a real Internet of things (the so-called IoT) that connects the potential of web connections to the real world.
This is how an ENESSERE customer is always able to autonomously manage the operations of the wind turbine both when turning on or off and when selecting rotation speed, by using the dedicated myTurbine app, that works not just on smartphones but also on any PC and tablet connected to the internet.
Only a few steps and you can setup what you need. This is how you can remotely manage the performances of the wind turbine by monitoring anywhere, any time, in real time your ENESSERE Pegasus Wind Turbine.
