Small wind turbine

A small wind turbine is a « wind turbine » (see that word) of low power rate. Typically, the expression « small wind turbine » is used for electrical power ratings up to 100 KW maximum.  The segment of small wind turbines includes in particular the machines used for supplying electricity to private houses and farms from 3KW up to 6 KW and also for remote equipments as cell phone antennas, watering installations, illumination of highways areas,… up to 10 KW or even 15 KW. ALXION is only addressing the segment of small wind turbines under 100 KW with its STK alternators. If the applications of high power wind turbines, over 100 KW and up to 4 MW are only composed of Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines, the small wind turbine applications are made by two kinds of machines : Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines and Vertical Axis Wind Turbines, the latter mainly in urban zones. The media evoke quite often the projects or installations of high power wind turbines and consequently the populations are generally aware of those applications. This is not the case of small wind turbines applications and many times, people do not even know that they could use a small wind turbine in their garden for producing their own electricity, if the local wind charts allow it.
