Scirocco is a 5.6 m diameter rotor, 6 kW output professional-scale wind generator ideal for remote sites with medium power needs, such as small farms, houses, or large homesteads and especially rural or village electrification, sea water desalination, direct electrical water run-of-the-wind pumping .
Unlike most of its competitors, which use furling technique to decrease acquisition cost at the detriment of performances and reliability, Scirocco WT is designed and realized without compromise, using state of the art components, centrifugal pitch overspeed regulation device, slewing rings for blades attachment and yawing, 100% sealed direct drive permanent magnet generator. Design and calculations have been made according with IEC 61400-2 design rules .
Scirocco is characterized by low rotation speed, a very high efficiency, more particularly in the lower to medium wind speed range which is prevailing most of the time . This is the result of the conjunction of an optimized 2 blades rotor, an efficient direct drive PM generator, and variable speed management combined with the maximal power point tracking control following the constantly varying wind speed.
