The small wind turbines "VERTIKON" work according to the Darrieus principle and are independent of the wind direction due to their vertical axis of rotation. Thus, they need no wind tracking. The barrel looks calm and aesthetic, no noise is emitted even in strong wind. Therefore, they can be operated safely in the vicinity of residential buildings.
The simple and robust construction of the VERTIKON small wind turbine does not require mechanics. It has no gearbox, no sliding contacts, no wind tracking, no mechanical brake, no sensors and no Rotorblattverstellsystem.
Because where there is no mechanics, nothing needs to be maintained, freezes nothing, no noise, or even breaks. It is precisely this reliability that makes the VERTIKON small wind turbines interesting for private or agricultural use for power generation.
The special shape of the rotor blades and the generators specially developed for the VERTIKON ensure a light start in low wind and quiet operation in strong wind. The optimum coordination of all system components guarantees maximum efficiency over the entire work area.
