Title (EN) POWER GENERATION SYSTEM INCORPORATING A VANADIUM REDOX BATTERY AND A DIRECT CURRENT WIND TURBINE GENERATOR
(FR) SYSTEME DE GENERATION ELECTRIQUE INCORPORANT UN ACCUMULATEUR REDOX AU VANADIUM ET GENERATEUR D'EOLIENNE DIRECTE
Abstract:
(EN) A power generation system includes a wind turbine generator and a vanadium redox battery to compensate for fluctuations in wind power. The wind turbine generator provides DC power that may be used to charge the vanadium redox battery. Generated DC power may also be used for power distribution and, if required, supplemented by DC power from the vanadium redox battery. The power generation system interfaces with a control system to optimize performance and efficiency.
(FR) La présente invention concerne système de génération électrique comprenant un générateur d'éolienne et un accumulateur redox au vanadium destiné à compenser les fluctuations de la force du vent. Ce générateur d'éolienne fournit du courant continu qui peut être utilisé pour charger l'accumulateur redox au vanadium. Le courant continu généré peut aussi être utilisé pour une distribution de puissance, le cas échéant, augmenté du courant continu en provenance de l'accumulateur redox au vanadium. Ce système de génération électrique vient s'interfacer avec un système de commande afin d'optimiser les performances et l'efficacité.
