Saving significant energy can be done with the Passaat. Nowadays it is most often used for power saving at private homes or in an hybrid stand alone system in a remote location.

Generator Type

The generator is a synchronous, 3 phase permanent magnet one. It comes in different voltages, so you can connect 24Vdc, 48Vdc, or single phase grid applications.

Delays

Delivery time: between 2 and 4 months.
In order to optimize your system and production, each installation is specific and therefore equipment need to be ordered case by case.
Installation time: 1 or 2 days depending on the size of the mast.
Civil works need to be done a month before for the concrete to cure.

Masts

Standard masts are either Guyed wire mast or Free standing pole ranging from 12 to 18 meters.

Batteries

In a stand alone system, the battery pack that we recommend is a Rolls lead acid 24V 400 Ah.

Inverters

The Passaat comes with a SMA Windyboy inverter if connected to the grid or a Victron Phoenix 24/1200 or 24/1600 one in a stand alone system.

Safety system

Safety system by hinged vane which will gradually turn the rotor out of the wind and a short circuit system for the generator.

Production and Power Curves

The left graph gives you the annual production (in kWh) across a range of wind speeds.
The right graph gives you the instantaneous power (in W) across a range of wind speeds.

Average wind speed in New Zealand ranges between 5 and 7m/s.
