Published on March 4, 2010 at 4:33 AM

Vestas provides different models of wind turbines. The V82 wind turbine generates power both during medium and low wind conditions. This turbine consists of different components such as a nacelle controller, mechanical brake, blade, pitch system, hub controller, gearbox, yaw gears, coupling, generator, ground controller and coupling. The V82 wind turbine has a rotor with a total diameter of 82 meters. This rotor has a swept area of 5,281 square meters and consists of three blades. It is regulated with the help of the Active-Stall technology. The wind turbine from Vestas can be installed on towers available in varying heights of 78 meters, 80 meters, and 70 meters.

V82 Wind Turbine

The V82 wind turbine generates 1.65 megawatts of power at a nominal wind speed of 13 meters per second. It has cut-out and cut-in wind speeds of 3.5 meters per second and 20 meters per second, respectively. The cut-out wind speed of the turbine has been calculated for a timeframe of 10 minutes. This wind turbine from Vestas comprises an asynchronous water cooled generator, which generates a nominal output of 1,650 kilowatts.

The wind turbine from Vestas incorporates a microprocessor-based type of control that also includes remote monitoring option. The nacelle and rotor of the V82 wind turbine weigh 52 tons and 43 tons, respectively.
