Philéole presents a new, modern and ecological product: a bio-sourced wind turbine
Did you know? Philéole comes from two Greek terms !
They talk about us
The vertical wind turbine implies a wind turbine with a vertical axis of rotation. The Philéole vertical axis wind turbine is of the Savonius type and operates on the principle of differential drag. The blades which present their concave face to the wind offer more resistance to the wind than those which present their convex face; this produces a differential torque which causes the propeller to rotate.
The term “yield” is rarely used when talking about wind power. The most used term is the “power coefficient” which is the ratio of the effective energy supplied by the wind turbine to the total energy contained in the wind at a given speed. This coefficient is variable, and the maximum value is retained. This power coefficient caps at 30% for slow wind turbines (Savonius type) and can approach 50% for fast vertical axis Darrieus wind turbines.
For example, a 100-Watt electric wind generator can power two laptop chargers, ten to twenty smartphone chargers, twenty 5 Watt LED spotlights (which each provide the light of an old spot). 50 Watts halogen).
Philéole wind turbines are silent because, under no circumstances, the speed of the tip of the blades exceeds that of the wind (or very little), unlike the blades of horizontal axis propellers, the end of which can reach 6 to 7 times the speed of the wind whit that generate annoying whistles.
Lightweight and efficient
The very particular design of the blades and the air outlet vents, covered by patents in Europe, makes the Philéole propeller light and efficient. Its low weight only results in low tipping torque, even in an elevated position in the masts or on roofs.
Strong and resistant
The one-piece or three-piece construction propeller is made from recyclable PLA (corn starch). Its design is thick and rigid in the center, more flexible towards the periphery. It reduces centrifugal forces to better cope with turbulent winds.
Of the Savonius type, our mini wind turbine has a vertical axis, which means that the peripheral speed at the end of the blade does not exceed that of the wind and avoids any whistling or noise.
The low speed at the end of the blade and the reduced inertia of the propeller (weight 4 kg) avoid any danger for the user as for birds or the sails of sailboats.
Reliable and space-saving
Its vertical axis makes electricity production more regular because it is independent of the direction of the wind and vortices. The small dimensions of our wind turbines allow easy mounting at the top of the mast or on a roof.
The choice of using three blades instead of two and their helical design made it possible, through tunnel testing to support, to avoid vibrations.
We offer you a unique and successful product for independent and renewable energy production!
The Philéole wind turbine is ecological thanks to the materials used for its manufacture: starch and corn and aluminum accentuate the biodegradable and recyclable side of our wind turbine.
Philéole also emphasizes the biobased side of its wind turbine: produced and designed in Europe, the Philéole wind turbine reduces the carbon footprint that emanates from the production, the purchase of parts and the routing of the wind turbine.
The lifespan of the Philéole wind turbine is conditioned by that of its ball bearings, sized for a lifespan of approximately 30 years (except mechanical parts).
