Direct Conversion of Wind Energy into Heat Using Joule Machine

  • The small and remote households in Northern regions demand thermal energy rather than electricity. Wind turbine in such places can be used to convert wind energy into thermal energy directly using a heat generator based on the principle of the Joule machine. The heat generator driven by a wind turbine can reduce the cost of energy for heating system. However the optimal performance of the system depends on the torque-speed characteristics of the wind turbine and the heat generator. To achieve maximum efficiency of operation both characteristics should be matched. In the article the condition of optimal performance is developed and an example of the system operating at maximum efficiency is simulated.
