With this system one can make best use of available natural resources to meet the energy needs at affordable one time investment with minimal maintenance cost.

INTRODUCTION
WIND POWER:

Humans have been using wind power for at least 5,500 years to propel sailboats and sailing ships, and architects have used wind-driven natural ventilation in buildings. Windmills have been used for irrigation pumping and for milling grain since the 7th century AD.

In July 1887, a Scottish academic, Professor James Blyth, undertook wind power experiments that culminated in a UK patent in 1891. In the United States, Charles F. Brush produced electricity using a wind powered machine, starting in the winter of 1887-1888, which powered his home and laboratory until about 1900. In the 1890s, the Danish scientist and inventor Poul la Cour constructed wind turbines to generate electricity, which was then used to produce hydrogen. These were the first of what was to become the modern form of wind turbine.

In reality, wind energy is a converted form of solar energy. The sun's radiation heats different parts of the earth at different rates-most notably during the day and night, but also when different surfaces (for example, water and land) absorb or reflect at different rates. This in turn causes portions of the atmosphere to warm differently. Hot air rises, reducing the atmospheric pressure at the earth's surface, and cooler air is drawn in to replace it. The result is wind.

Air has mass, and when it is in motion, it contains the energy of that motion ("kinetic energy"). Some portion of that energy can be converted in to mechanical force or electricity. Wind energy system transforms the kinetic energy of the wind into mechanical or electrical energy that can be harnessed for practical use. Mechanical energy is most commonly used for pumping water in rural or remote locations. Wind electric turbines generate electricity for homes and businesses and for sale to utilities

Wind power is non-dispatchable, meaning that for economic operation, all of the available output must be taken when it is available. Small-scale wind power is the name given to Wind Turbine systems with the capacity to produce up to 50 kW of electrical power.

Typical Turbine subsystems include:

  • a rotor, or blades, which convert the wind's energy into rotational shaft energy;
  • a nacelle (enclosure) containing a drive train, usually including a gearbox and a generator;
  • a tower, to support the rotor and drive train; and
  • electronic equipment such as controls, electrical cables, ground support equipment, and  interconnection eq.


The towers are mostly tubular and made of steel. The blades are made of fiberglass-reinforced polyester or wood-epoxy.

The ability to generate electricity is measured in watts. Watts are very small units, so the terms kilowatt (kW, 1,000 watts), megawatt (MW, 1 million watts), and gigawatt (pronounced "jig-a-watt," GW, 1 billion watts) are most commonly used to describe the capacity of generating units like wind turbines or other power plants. The output of a wind turbine depends on the turbine's size and the wind's speed through the rotor.

Electricity production and consumption are most commonly measured in kilowatt-hours (kWh). A kilowatt-hour means one kilowatt (1,000 watts) of electricity produced or consumed for one hour. One 50-watt light bulb left on for 20 hours consumes one kilowatt-hour of electricity (50 watts x 20 hours = 1,000 watt-hours = 1 kilowatt-hour).

The power available in the wind is proportional to the cube of its speed, which means that doubling the wind speed increases the available power by a factor of eight. Thus, a turbine operating at a site with an average wind speed of 12 mph could in theory generate about 33% more electricity than one at an 11-mph site, because the cube of 12 (1,768) is 33% larger than the cube of 11 (1,331). (In the real world, the turbine will not produce quite that much more electricity, but it will still generate much more than the 9% difference in wind speed.)

The important thing to understand is that what seems like a small difference in wind speed can mean a large difference in available energy and in electricity produced, and therefore, a large difference in the cost of the electricity generated. Also, there is little energy to be harvested at very low wind speeds (6-mph winds contain less than one-eighth the energy of 12-mph winds).

A wind plant is "fueled" by the wind, which blows steadily at times and not at all at other times. Although modern utility-scale wind turbines typically operate 65% to 90% of the time, they often run at less than full capacity. Therefore, a capacity factor of 25% to 40% is common, although they may achieve higher capacity factors during windy weeks or months.

SOLAR POWER

Solar power is the generation of electricity from sunlight. This can be direct as with photovoltaics (PV), or indirect as with concentrating solar power (CSP), where the sun's energy is focused to boil water which is then used to provide power. The solar power gained from photovoltaics can be used to eliminate the need for purchased electricity (usually electricity gained from burning fossil fuels). Solar power is a predictably intermittent energy source, meaning that whilst solar power is not available at all times, we can predict with a very good degree of accuracy when it will and will not be available.

Solar cell, or photovoltaic cell (PV), is a device that converts light into electric current using the photoelectric effect. This is based on the discovery by Alexandre-Edmond Becquerel who noticed that some materials release electrons when hit with rays of photons from light, which produces an electrical current. The first solar cell was constructed by Charles Fritts in the 1880s.Although the prototype selenium cells converted less than 1% of incident light into electricity, both Ernst Werner von Siemens and James Clerk Maxwell recognized the importance of this discovery. Following the work of Russell Ohl in the 1940s, researchers Gerald Pearson, Calvin Fuller and Daryl Chapin created the silicon solar cell.

FLUX POWER STATION:

Flux power station is equipped with modular steel tower, power house housing Wind Turbine System and batteries, Solar Panels with multidirectional panel holders and unique 3 in 1 Hybrid Converter Inverter system.

The wind energy generator is designed and manufactured by Flux after conducting various field studies so as to generate electricity even with lowest RPM. The design details are the trade secret of Flux.

Both wind power and solar power are intermittent energy sources, meaning that all available output must be taken when it is available and stored for when it can be used. Wind power and solar power can be complementary, in locations that experience more wind in the winter and more sun in the summer. To make the best use of wind and solar energy we have incorporated wind and solar power generator with converter system to generate and store the power in the battery simultaneously with various measures to protect and enhance the battery life..

The inverter is designed to provide years of trouble-free operation and includes automatic safety monitoring circuitry to protect the inverter and battery. The hybrid converter inverter converts the DC voltage of battery to reliable true sine wave AC voltage for household appliances, such as TVs, computers, water pumps, etc.

During field trials it is observed that the situation arises when on days with no bright sun light and no wind the battery charging system fails. To overcome such situations Flux has incorporated wind, solar and grid power charging circuit to charge the batteries. (This is possible if grid power is available at site.) The system automatically uses available source of energy to charge and maintain batteries.

To enhance the life of battery batteries we have incorporated unique electronic microprocessor controlled battery d’sulphater to prevent sulphation in the battery cell. By eliminating the sulphation battery life is extend and maintains the performance of batteries. In addition to this for multiple battery banks we can supply auto water level management system to maintain water level in the batteries to enhance the life of batteries.
