Description

 SYSTEM FOR CONVERTING WIND ENERGY IN ELECTRIC ENERGY INCORPORATING COMPRESSED AIR STORAGE MEANS

The present invention relates to the field of renewable energies and more particularly to an integrated system for converting and storing the energy produced by wind turbines.

 Since the early 1990s, there has been renewed interest in wind energy, particularly in the European Union where the annual growth rate is around 20%. This growth is attributed to the inherent possibility of producing electricity without carbon dioxide emissions. To support this growth, wind turbine performance must continue to improve. The prospect of increasing wind energy production requires the development of efficient production tools, advanced control tools to improve machine performance, and energy management capabilities.

 A wind turbine makes it possible to transform the kinetic energy of the wind into electrical or mechanical energy. Wind turbines are classified in two main categories: horizontal axis wind turbines and vertical axis wind turbines, the axis designating the axis of the rotating part of the wind turbine.

 For the conversion of wind into electrical energy, a horizontal axis wind turbine typically consists of:

 - a mast for placing a rotor at a height sufficient to allow its movement or to place the rotor at a height allowing it to be driven by a wind stronger and more regular than at ground level;

 - a nacelle mounted at the top of the mast, housing mechanical components, pneumatic, some electrical and electronic components, necessary for the operation of the machine. The nacelle can turn to steer the machine in the right direction;

 - A rotor, attached to the nacelle, comprising several blades (usually three) and the nose of the wind turbine. The rotor is driven by the wind energy, it is connected by a mechanical shaft directly or indirectly (via a gearbox system and mechanical shaft) to an electric machine (electric generator ...) which converts the energy collected in electrical energy;

- A transmission, consisting of two axes (mechanical shaft of the rotor and mechanical shaft of the electric machine) connected by a transmission (gearbox). For the conversion of wind into electrical energy, a vertical axis wind turbine typically consists of:

 - a vertical rotating shaft;

 vertical blades driven by the wind, the blades are integral with the rotating shaft so as to transmit the movement to the shaft, the shaft assembly, blades and support arms of the blades constitute the rotor;

 - a transmission; and

 - an electric machine (electric generator ...) and power equipment that convert the rotational energy of the rotor into electrical energy.

 A vertical axis wind turbine does not need to be facing the wind.

The main problem with wind turbines is that they provide energy in a discontinuous manner, whereas electrical energy may be useless at the moment the wind turbines are in operation and necessary when they are stationary. This is why means for storing energy produced by wind turbines have been developed.

 The solution most often considered is the storage of electrical energy in the form of an electric battery. However, this solution does not have a sufficient yield, is expensive, heavy, cumbersome, especially for embedded systems on offshore (offshore) wind turbines.

 Another solution considered is the use of compressed air storage (CAES): for storage, the electrical energy produced drives air compressors, and for destocking, Compressed air drives turbines connected to an electric generator. The efficiency of this solution is not optimal because a portion of the energy of the compressed air is in the form of heat that is not used, moreover this solution requires a first electric generator before storage to drive the compressors. For example, the patent application DE 102010035393 A1 describes a turbine adapted to the storage of compressed air CAES.

In addition, currently, the wind turbines and the energy storage means being developed independently of one another, no current embodiment provides an integrated solution comprising a coupling between the wind turbine and the storage means of the energy. The invention relates to a system for converting wind energy into electrical energy, the system incorporating means for converting and storing energy in the form of compressed air. According to the invention, the means for converting and storing energy comprise compressors connected to the wind turbine, means for storing heat and means for storing compressed air, and turbines connected to an electric generator. . Thus, the invention provides an integrated system for storing the maximum energy.

The system according to the invention

 The invention relates to a system for converting wind power into electrical energy comprising at least one wind turbine, means for converting and storing energy and at least one electric generator. Said energy conversion and storage means comprise:

at least one reservoir of compressed air by said compression means, and

 a plurality of expansion means driven by the compressed air at the outlet of said tank, the compressed air being heated by said heat exchange and storage means, and said expansion means being connected to said electric generator.

 According to the invention, said wind turbine is a vertical axis wind turbine, said compression means being connected to the rotor of said wind turbine.

 Advantageously, said compression means are connected to said rotor by means of a gearbox or a gearbox.

 Preferably, said heat exchange and storage means are disposed between said compression means.

 Advantageously, said energy conversion and storage means comprise a number of expansion means greater than or equal to the number of compression means

In addition, the invention relates to a floating support comprising the energy conversion system according to the invention. Said conversion and heat storage means are placed at least partially in a float.

 Advantageously, said heat conversion and storage means serve as ballast for said float.

Brief presentation of the figures

 Other features and advantages of the method according to the invention will appear on reading the following description of nonlimiting examples of embodiments, with reference to the appended figure and described below.

 Figure 1 illustrates a wind energy conversion system with a vertical axis offshore wind turbine according to one embodiment of the invention.

Detailed description of the invention

 The invention relates to a system for converting wind energy into electrical energy. According to the invention, the conversion system comprises a wind turbine, means for converting and storing energy and at least one electric generator. The energy conversion and storage means allow the storage and the discharge (destocking) of the energy in a pneumatic form and in the form of heat. During energy storage, the means for converting and storing energy make it possible to convert the mechanical energy coming from the wind turbine into pneumatic energy and to conserve this pneumatic energy as well as the heat generated. During the discharge of the energy, the conversion and storage means convert the stored energy (pneumatic and heat) into mechanical energy for at least one electric generator for conversion into electrical energy.

 Advantageously, the energy conversion and storage means are of the advanced adiabatic CAES type (AACAES of the English "advance adiabatic compressed air energy storage"). In this case, the means for converting and storing the energy comprise: compression means, heat exchange and storage means, at least one compressed air tank, expansion means.

The compression means, preferably compressors, are driven by the wind turbine, directly or by means of a gearbox or a gearbox. Ways compression are staged and compress the air by successive steps. Advantageously, the compression means are mounted on the same shaft which is driven by the wind turbine, the rotation shaft can be the hub of the compressors. The compression means may have the same compression ratio or different compression ratios.

 The heat exchange and storage means make it possible to recover and store the heat due to the compression of the air and to supply this heat to the compressed air before passing through the expansion means. The heat exchange and storage means can be introduced between each compression stage, in order to store the heat resulting from the compression. Heat storage can be achieved using phase change materials (PCMs) or a mixture of MCP with a fluid, including for example paraffins.

 The compressed air reservoir is used to store the compressed air by the compression means and cooled by the heat exchange and storage means. Thus, the air is stored at high pressure and at room temperature.

 The expansion means, preferably turbines, are driven by the compressed air contained in the compressed air tank. Beforehand, the compressed air is heated by means of exchange and storage of heat. The turbines drive at least one electric generator to provide electrical energy at the desired time. Advantageously, the compressed air is heated between each stage of expansion of the air, which allows for a relaxation of a hot compressed gas to obtain a better energy conversion (more efficient). Thus, the stored heat is also used to generate electrical energy, which limits the energy losses due to conversions. Preferably, the turbines are mounted on the same shaft and drive a single electric generator. The system for converting and storing energy preferably comprises a number of expansion means at least equal to the number of compression means.

Thus, thanks to the energy conversion system according to the invention, it is possible to smooth the electric production of a wind turbine. For example, a wind turbine supplying 5 MW for 3100 h / year can provide 2.5 MW for 6200 h / year or we can concentrate the production of electrical energy during peak hours to overcome significant consumption. The system according to the invention also allows savings on the electrical connection because the maximum power to be transported is lower. In addition, the conversion system according to the invention does not require an immediate conversion of mechanical energy into electrical energy. Figure 1 illustrates, without limitation, an embodiment of a conversion system according to the invention. This conversion system is an offshore system, intended to be used at sea. For this, the wind turbine is disposed on a float 12. According to the illustrated embodiment, the wind turbine is a vertical axis wind turbine comprising a shaft 1, support arms 2 (also called by the English term "strut"), and vertical blades 3. Thus, the rotor of the wind turbine is connected to the means for converting and storing the energy, which allows a transmission direct and simplified editing.

 As illustrated, the float 12 includes within it means for converting and storing energy. This solution reduces the size of the offshore energy conversion system. For this exemplary embodiment, the means for converting and storing the energy consist of two compression stages 4 and 5, two heat reservoirs 6 and 7, two expansion stages 9 and 10 and a storage compressed air 1 1. In this case, the compressor 4 is a low pressure compressor, the compressor 5 a high pressure compressor, the turbine 9 a high pressure turbine and the turbine 10 a low pressure turbine. The compressors 4 and 5 are mounted on the same shaft directly on the rotor 1 of the wind turbine and the turbines 9 and 10 are mounted on the same shaft directly on the shaft of the electric generator 1 January.

 In this figure, the flow of air is represented by arrows, the arrows formed by a continuous line COM relate to compression, and the arrows formed by a dashed line DET concern the trigger. The air taken off the float is first compressed by the low pressure compressor 4 (driven by the rotor 1), then passes into the first heat exchange and storage means 6 in order to capture the heat from the compression. The air thus compressed and cooled is compressed in the high-pressure compressor 5 (driven by the rotor 1), then passes into the second exchange and storage means 7 in order to capture the heat resulting from the compression. The compressed air and cooled substantially to room temperature is stored at high pressure in the compressed air tank 8.

 When an electricity demand, or when an operator wishes, the stored compressed air is discharged from the tank 8 for the generation of electricity. For this, at the outlet of the tank 8, the compressed air is heated in the second heat exchange and storage means 7, then passes into the high-pressure turbine 9 (driving the electric generator 1 1). At the output of the high pressure turbine, the expanded and cooled air is heated by the first heat exchange and storage means 6. The heated air passes through the low pressure turbine 10 (driving the electric generator 1 1 ). The air is then rejected outside the float 12.

Variations of realization The embodiments described below may be taken alone or in combination with the embodiment of FIG. 1 or with the other embodiments described in the present application.

 The conversion system may be an offshore system or a land conversion system. In this second case, the means for converting and storing the energy can be buried or disposed on the surface of the earth.

 According to an alternative embodiment of the invention, the wind turbine is a wind turbine with a horizontal axis. In this case, the rotor of the wind turbine can be connected to the means for converting and storing the energy by means of a transmission, in particular by an angle gear. Alternatively, the wind turbine may be a multi-turbine turbine, for example as described in patent applications FR 2954475 and FR 2954415.

 In the case of an offshore conversion system, the means for converting and storing the energy may be outside the float, for example on a platform.

 The energy conversion and storage means may comprise a plurality of compressed air tanks.

 In the case of an offshore conversion system, the compressed air tank or tanks may be introduced into the float, or disposed outside the float, for example on a platform.

 The means of relaxation can each lead to an electric generator or be distributed over several shafts, each shaft driving an electric generator.

 In the case of an offshore conversion system, the heat storage vector may replace part of the ballast of the float. Under these conditions, its position must be optimized in order to best perform its role of ballast.

 The number of compression means and expansion means can be between 2 and 10.

Example of realization

 An embodiment is presented according to FIG. 1 adapted to a 5 MW wind turbine. It is assumed that the wind turbine runs 3100 hours per year, equivalent to full power. It produces 15500 MWh per year. In this example, it is desired to inject electricity on the power grid during peak periods two hours in the morning and two hours in the evening. Taking into account the efficiency of the system, this corresponds to a storage of about 15 MWh.
