Abstract

The present invention relates to a wind turbine installation comprising a rotatable crossarm (2) on a mast (1), and at least two wind turbines (3, 3') on the crossarm (2). In Fig.1, an embodiment of said installation shows three wind turbines (3, 3', 3'') that are mounted on the rotatable crossarm (2).

Description

WIND TURBINE

description

The present invention relates to a wind turbine system in accordance with claim 1 Wind turbines are known as a power generator for some time. Since wind energy as the driving force highly variable, from light wind can be up to hurricane-force gust, an attempt with high technical and cost intensive effort to solve the problem.

The object of the invention is to provide a wind turbine plant, the cost, but with a mast and a rotating boom, said boom having at least two

is equipped wind turbines which start at low wind and high wind full

can deliver energy performance.

In the following the invention is explained in detail with reference to the drawing:

Fig. 1 shows an inventive wind turbine plant, with a possible arrangement of three wind turbines in front view

Fig. 2 shows an inventive wind turbine system in side view.

Fig. 1 shows the turbine plant, which according to an embodiment 3 of the wind turbine (3, 3 ', 3 ") for an optimum exploitation of the wind energy to the boom (2) only a mast (1) are mounted, the wind vane (12) provides the boom (2) by means of the positioning motor (5) and thereby the turbine blades (6,6 ', 6 ") optimally to the wind.

Fig. 2 shows the turbine shaft (7), where individually according to an embodiment three engageable generators (8,8'8 ") are arranged, which via the speed sensor (9) via a

Electronic circuit (1 1) depending on the wind force to be turned off or not. Low start-up energy, as well as best use of energy in strong winds are guaranteed.

Claims

claims:
1. Wind turbine system with a rotatable boom (2) on a mast (1), characterized in that on the boom (2) at least two wind turbines (3,3 ') are provided, wherein the respective wind turbine (3) at least one generator ( 8) which (with the turbine shaft 7) can be coupled.
2. Wind turbine plant according to claim 1, characterized in that the boom (2) via a bearing (4) about a vertical axis to rotate.
3. A wind turbine system comprising according to claim 1, characterized in that the respective wind turbine (3), a turbine shaft (7), and thereto several generators (8, 8 ', 8 ") are arranged.
4. Wind turbine plant according to claim 3, characterized in that the generators (8, 8 ', 8 ") individually to the turbine shaft (7) of the respective wind turbine can be switched.
5. Wind turbine plant according to claim 3 or 4, characterized in that the
Generators (8) via a speed sensor (9) depends on the speed can be switched on via an electronic circuit (11) to the turbine shaft (7) of the respective wind turbines (3,3 ', 3 ").
6. Wind turbine plant according to one of claims 3 to 5, characterized in that on the respective turbine shaft, a brake (10) is mounted.
7. A wind turbine system according to claim 1 or 2 characterized in that the a bearing point (4) rotatably mounted boom (2) is wind properly controlled by a wind vane (12) by means of a position motor.
