DS-300W Vertical Axis Wind Turbine

The DS-300 is the smallest vertical axis wind turbine produced by Hi-VAWT. It is designed for wind speeds of approximately 13.5 m/s (31MPH). The turbine stands about 5.06m (16’6″) in height and weighs about 25.5 KGS (56 pounds). The axis and the blades are made of anodized aluminum and there is an automatic short circuit braking system as well as a manual braking system. The design is an external 3-blade Darrieus design with an internal 2-layers Savonius design. Maximum output is 300W.

DS-1500W Vertical Axis Wind Turbine

The DS-1500 is the medium size vertical axis wind turbine produced by Hi-VAWT. It is designed for wind speeds of approximately 12 m/s (27MPH). The turbine stands about 6.99m (23′) in height and weighs about 380 KGS (837 pounds). The axis is made of galvanized steel while the blades are made of anodized aluminum and there is an automatic short circuit braking system as well as a manual braking system. The design is an external 3-blade Darrieus design with an internal 2-layers Savonius design. Maximum output is 1.5KW.

DS-3000W Vertical Axis Wind Turbine

The DS-3000 is the largest vertical axis wind turbine produced by Hi-VAWT. It is designed for wind speeds of approximately 12 m/s (27MPH). The turbine stands about 8.16m (27′) in height and weighs about 680 KGS (1500 pounds). The axis is made of galvanized steel while the blades are made of anodized aluminum and there is an automatic short circuit braking system as well as a manual braking system. The design is an external 3-blade Darrieus design with an internal 2-layers Savonius design. Maximum output is 3KW.

Hybrid Street Lighting Systems

The street light system combines a DS-300W Vertical Axis Wind Turbine and 85W Solar Panel together with modern design of lamp pole, providing an independent (off-grid), self-sufficient lighting application. The controller is installed with a wind power controller as well as a solar power charger- both of which are paralleled for charging. The system is designed for the standard lamp pole design but customization is possible for other types of poles.

The hybrid street lighting system includes:

  • DS-300W Vertical Axis Wind Turbine
  • Modern designed street light pole with built-in controller/battery bank housing.
  • Integrated WG0400 wind controller/RC10-II solar charger.
  • Battery Bank (two 100Ah/12V Deep Cycle Batteries)
  • Integrated Circuit Brake.
