Architecture Upwind, 3 bladed rotor, self regulating
Capacity 5kW
BWEA Reference Power 4711W (power output at 11m/s (24.6 mph))
Annual Energy Yield 9170kWh with Annual Mean Wind Speed (AMWS) of 5m/s (11.2mph) (to IEC & BWEA Standards)
Cut-In Wind Speed 3m/s (6.7mph)
Cut-Out Wind Speed None – continuous generation to survival wind speed
Survival Wind Speed 60m/s (134mph)
IEC Turbine Class Conforms to IEC 61400 to Class II – AMWS up to 8.5m/s (19mph)
Control System Patented Reactive Pitch™ control – at low to moderate wind speeds the patented pitch system, Reactive Pitch™, holds the blades in the optimum position for capturing maximum energy from the wind. At high wind speeds the R9000’s Reactive Pitch™ mechanism automatically pitches the blades so it can regulate energy capture and blade speed. It therefore continues to capture – up to the full 5kW power rating.
Rotor Diameter 5.5m (18’)
Rotor Speed 200rpm nominal
