Savonius wind turbine innovation integrated in a constructed nano grid system

Abstract [en]

A nanogrid system for supplying neutrino detectors on Antarctica with electricity is

designed and built. The nanogrid system could later on be implemented in various

configurations where suppling electricity to neutrino detectors is one area of use.

The energy system that is acting on site in Antarctica is based around solar panels

to provide power to the measuring equipment. However, providing electricity in

such a way is not optimal due to its failure in delivering electricity at times. A

nanogrid that can stand the demands of constant energy supply to the

measurement station are therefore constructed. The energy sources that are

integrated into the nanogrid are an innovation in vertical axis wind turbine and

photovoltaics. The wind turbine innovation is tested under real conditions for the

first time. In the constructed nanogrid, there are also integrated energy storage

consisting of battery cells that are coupled together to a coherent unit.

Measurement equipment is also implemented for analyzation of acting wind turbine

as well as different types of safety equipment for redundancy in the system. In the

nanogrid, a rectifier for AC to DC transformation is constructed. An inverter for DC

to AC transformation is also implemented for supplying electricity to the

equipment that are acting on the grid.

The system is tested under real conditions. The whole system could observe

partially function and configurated well to the various parts of the whole system.

Further optimisation of some parts of the system from the prototype is needed.
