Small wind systems are used for individual homes and businesses that are
off-grid and grid-tie. A small off-grid wind system consists of a wind
turbine, which generates electrical power, a battery bank that stores the
power, and a Xantrex inverter. In many locations hybrid systems that include
solar panels and a generator are used to ensure a “round-the-clock”
A grid-tie wind system may be as simple as a wind turbine and a Xantrex
grid-tie inverter. Depending on the amount of power being used by the
household, electricity is either fed to or accepted from the utility.
The wind turbine is placed on a tower at a height of up to 100 feet where
the rotor blades are exposed to faster and less turbulent wind. This enables
the turbine to produce the maximum amount of power. Usually, two or three
blades are mounted on a shaft connected to the turbine to form a rotor.
Wind blowing over the blades causes them to lift and rotate. This
rotation is used to spin a shaft inside a generator that converts the motion
into electricity for use in the house or business.
Wind is a completely renewable fuel source and produces no health risks and
no air pollution. For information on complete wind systems follow this link

Introducing the next generation AIR!
Southwest Wind power is pleased to introduce the latest evolution in small
wind turbines, the NEW AIR-X. The AIR-X builds upon what has made AIR the
world's number one selling small wind turbine with new technology
previously found only in today's state-of-the-art mega-watt-class wind
turbines. The AIR-X is our most expensive venture to date. Thousands of
hours of research and testing have gone into the design. Read some
testimonials from AIR-X marine owners who rave about the new quieter
design and improved performance.
The AIR-X incorporates a new microprocessor based
technology that results in increased performance, improved battery
charging capability, greater reliability and the reduction of “flutter”
noise from the machine.
The controller allows for peak-power tracking of the wind by optimizing
the alternator's output on all points of the cubic curve and efficiently
delivers the energy to the battery. The turbine’s smart controller
allows it to actually control blade rotation speed thus eliminating the
buzzing noise commonly found with most small wind turbines.
Much Lower Noise: Previous AIR wind modules relied on their aero-elastic
blade design for protection in high winds. This caused a loud flutter
noise in winds above 35 mph (16 m/s). AIR-X’s circuit monitors the wind
speed and electronically slows the blades as it reaches its rated output
preventing it from going into flutter. This results in a much quieter
wind turbine. In high winds, the AIR-X will continue to produce power at
a reduced level until the wind decreases, at which point maximum
potential output will resume.
Improved battery charging: Previous AIR designs required 300-400 amp
hour battery banks so the trickle charge of the wind turbine could be
adequately absorbed. The AIR-X’s charge controller periodically stops
charging, reads the battery voltage, compares it to the voltage setting
and if the battery is charged, it completely shuts off all current going
to the battery. This function is performed within a few milliseconds.
The closer the battery is to reaching its full state of charge, the more
often the AIR-X’s circuit repeats this action. This means any size
battery bank from 25 to 25,000 amp hours or higher can be charged
safely. When the battery has reached its charged state, the AIR-X will
slow to an almost complete stop. Only when the battery has dropped below
its voltage set point will it startup and resume charging.

The Air Industrial is a wind turbine capable
of resisting the harsh environments that generally accompany
mountaintop repeater sites and off shore platforms. Southwest
Windpower's engineers spent two years in research with companies
such as Chevron, Texaco and Cellular One to design a product
capable of reliability producing power for remote sites.
Combining wind and photovoltaics in hybrid systems are quickly
becoming the standard in renewable energy installations. This is
due to seasonal fluctuations of both wind and solar energy
resources that make it an ideal combination.
Maintenance-free performance, easy installation, and high output
make AIR Industrial ideal for virtually any remote battery

Formerly the Whisper H40, the Whisper 100 has been
updated for 2005 with new features and added flexibility
for your renewable energy system. Now, any Whisper 100
can have its voltage changed, 12-48V DC, within a few
minutes in the field. The Whisper 100 is designed to
operate in a site with medium to high wind speed
averages of 12 mph, 5.4 m/s, and greater. The 100
provides 100+ kWh per month, 3.4 kWh per day, in a 12
mph average wind. Worried about noise? The Whisper 100

Serious power from a medium size small wind
turbine – The Whisper 500 can produce enough
energy to power an entire home. Formerly the
Whisper 175, the Whisper 500 was completely
redesigned in 2004 to work in harsh high wind
environments. The Whisper 500 is a two bladed
fiberglass reinforced blade and incorporates the
patented side furling design that optimizes
output at any wind speed. Assuming a 12 mph (5.4
m/s) wind, a Whisper 500 will produce as much as
500 kWh per month. That is enough energy to
power the average California home.
One of the most difficult challenges of the installation
of a wind turbine is assembling and erecting a tower. Fortunately, the
engineers here at Southwest Windpower have designed towers that are easy
and safe to install. A number of heights for each product are available.
Keep in mind, the larger the turbine the more complex the tower design.
None of the towers require any kind of welding or machining and only the
largest towers may require concrete. Most designs can be installed
within a few hours to a day. Lastly, all work with Southwest Windpower
towers is done on the ground.
You will NEVER need to climb a tower.
All of Southwest Windpower’s tower kits include everything you need
with the exception of:
1) Pipe material
3) Power wires
To keep your costs low and to consider site variables, these
components should be purchased locally. When selecting the materials for
the construction of your tower, please consider the following:
Pipe Material: For most conditions, we recommend a
“schedule 40” pipe material. This offers a wall thickness of .125” which
is strong enough to resist most wind conditions. If you are using fence
pipe material, make sure you ask for “SS40”. If you live in an
environment were your winds will never exceed 80 mph (140 km) then we
suggest using a thinner wall material such as a “schedule 20”. In
conduit material, this is called “SS20”.
Anchors: The anchors are by far the most difficult part
of installing a tower. Once you have them in the ground, a tower
installation gets really easy. There are various soil materials that you
should consider prior to installing your tower. The type of anchor
should also vary. Our owner manuals have recommendations based on soil
Power wires: Because of the size of turbine and
variable length from the turbine to your batteries/inverter, it is
impossible to know the proper wire size. Once you have understood the
distance from the turbine to the battery, refer to the wind turbine’s
owners manual for the proper wire size. Be sure to select the right type
of wire for your environment.
VERY IMPORTANT: Prior to the installation of your
tower, read the owners manual thoroughly and make sure you understand
the environmental conditions at your site prior to purchasing materials.
We offer manuals that are free to download and review prior to purchase.
Below we have made available all of our tower kit manuals so you the
user can gain a full understanding of how to install an AIR or Whisper
wind generator prior to purchase. If you have any questions, please
contact us or your local dealer.

Battery Backup Systems for LED Traffic Signs Increase the public safety and reduced traffic congestion by allowing traffic lights to function even during a power failure. A typical traffic signal intersection experiences eight to ten local power outages annually. With IQUPS battery backup power, some or all the traffic control signals can continue to operate. This seamless switchover to battery power increases public safety and eliminates the need to dispatch police or other service personnel to direct traffic. If all traffic signals were converted to LEDs, the battery backup system would allow full operation of the traffic signals during a power outage, thus alleviating traffic congestion.
Important feature is the battery backup system’s ability to maintain the memory of the traffic signal controller. The controller is responsible for sequencing the on and off times of the various signals. With a battery backup system, the controller’s memory can be maintained and return to normal operation once the outage has ended. This feature has eliminated the time spent to reprogram controllers after a power outage
