  1. Wind Turbine ProjectDesign Review December 11, 2009 BGI

  2. Introduction Wind Turbine Project • Jared Freyer (Project Leader, Webmaster) • Senior, Mechanical Engineering • Fahad Ahmad (Recruitment Officer) • Sophomore, Mechanical Engineering • Anthony Christie • Freshman, Engineering • Yuanhua Cheng • Freshman, Engineering 2 BGI

  3. Project History Wind Turbine Project • Created by Purdue BGI Club • Developed to create a wind turbine feasibility study prarieroots.files.wordpress.com 3 BGI

  4. University Need Wind Turbine Project • Promote the sustainability and need for wind power in Indiana • Using the wind turbine as a living laboratory • Possibilities • Design new/efficient turbine blades • Design new/efficient turbine engines • Study wind/weather on Purdue’s campus • Provide power to the intramural field lights and feed power back into the Purdue power grid 4 BGI

  5. Goals of the Project Wind Turbine Project • Get approval from Capitol Projects Council to allow a wind turbine to be constructed • Fundraise money to construct a wind turbine on campus • Make an educational component to go with the wind turbine 5 BGI

  6. Past Work (Spring 2009) Wind Turbine Project • Did Initial Planning • Researched Optimal Location for Turbine • Researched Optimal Class of Turbine 6 BGI

  7. Location Requirements Wind Turbine Project • Height • Height of turbine and crane for installation restricted to 756 ft above sea level • Due to FAR Part 77 • Structure may not be more than 150 ft above airport elevation • Purdue Airport sits at 606 ft above sea level • Electrical Tie-ins • Duke Energy lines west of McCormick Rd • Purdue power lines east of McCormick Rd • Wind Quality • Determine where the most consistent wind power can be found • Generally related to topography of region 7 BGI

  8. 8 BGI

  9. Site of Interest Wind Turbine Project • Planned installation near the intramural fields • Site is close to the northwest substation • In close proximity to Purdue power lines • Higher elevation than surrounding area • Highly visible to Purdue students • Proximity to campus would allow for easier educational access 9 BGI

  10. 10 BGI

  11. Turbine Site Grid Interconnect 11 BGI

  12. 12 BGI

  13. 13 BGI

  14. Turbine Selection Wind Turbine Project • Large Wind (≥ 1 MW) • Due to siting restrictions large turbines will not be possible • Medium Wind (50 kW to 500 kW) • More feasible with height restrictions • Less efficient than large wind • Small Wind (1.5 kW to 50 kW) • Much less efficient than larger sizes • Less attention demanded 14 BGI

  15. Current Work (Fall 2009) Wind Turbine Project • Finalized Decision on Turbine Selection • Calculated Local Average Wind Speeds • Presented Proposal to ALDP • Submitted CPC-1 Paperwork 15 BGI

  16. Turbine Selection Wind Turbine Project 16 BGI

  17. Redriven 20 kW Wind Turbine Project • Power output • 20 kW rated power output @ 25 mph • 240 V /60 hz / 1 Phase • Features • 79 ft tall tower • 20 ft long blades • 61 dB at a distance of 25 feet • Self-erecting • Electric Yaw Controller • Dynamic Brake System www.energyeducation.tx.gov www.redriven.ca 17 BGI

  18. Redriven 20 kW Wind Turbine Project www.redriven.ca 18 BGI

  19. Average Wind Speeds for West Lafayette Wind Turbine Project Average Wind Speeds: Low Bound: 5.88 m/s High Bound: 7.39 m/s 19 BGI

  20. Average Power from ReDriven 20kW Wind Turbine Project Average Power: Low Bound: 4.65 kW High Bound: 8.19 kW 20 BGI

  21. 21 BGI

  22. 22 BGI

  23. Turbine: 99 ft (30 m) tall 650 ft (198 m) above sea level Bell Tower: 160 ft (49 m) tall 620 ft (189 m) above sea level 23 BGI

  24. Project Expenses Wind Turbine Project • Total CO2 Offset Per Year • 52.5 tons/year (DOE/EPA) • Equivalent to 157,500 miles/year for 30 MPG car 24 BGI

  25. CPC Process Wind Turbine Project • Capitol Projects Council • Components • CPC-1 and CPC-2 • CPC-1 Program Benchmarks • Relevance to University Strategic Plan • Educational Aspect • Alternatives Considered • Personnel (Construction and Maintenance) • Cost Estimate and Location • ALDP Recommendation 25 BGI

  26. University Strategic Plan Wind Turbine Project • New Synergies (2008 – 2014) • Strategies common to all goals • Promote sustainability conscience • Exemplify Purdue as living laboratory • Strategies specific to each goal • Engage students in experimental learning through hands on experiences • Civic engagement through campus design projects 26 BGI

  27. Time Table (Fall Semester) 27 BGI

  28. Future Plans Wind Turbine Project • Analyze safety precautions • Start Fund Raising • Private Funding vs. Actual Fund Raising • Requirements for CPC-2 • Maintain Communication with Contracting Company • Educational Component • Develop Website and Monitor Data 28 BGI

  29. Educational Component Wind Turbine Project • Website • Real time data • Energy production totals • History of project/construction • Research • Potential for blade design and testing • Data monitoring www.redriven.ca 29 BGI
