Transitioning the Earth to renewable energy sources is important to the planet’s future. You can contribute to this transition by generating some of your domestically used power by using renewable energy. A TESUP turbine is one way of achieving this goal!
Let’s have a look at a new TESUP Magnum 5 turbine to see how much power it could generate.
A Magnum 5 turbine generates 5000 Watts per second when spinning under its rated wind speed of 15 meters per second. This means at full capacity, the turbine generates 120 kWh over 24 hours. For reference, the average US household uses approximately 3300 kWh per year.
Unfortunately, the wind can’t be relied on to have such high speeds all of the time. To account for this we will apply a capacity factor of 30%. Meaning the wind turbine is spinning at capacity 30% of the time. There may be other inefficiencies involved to reduce this further.
So! With the capacity factor applied, the turbine may generate up to 36 kWh per day which is not bad at all!
It is difficult to compare this directly to a fossil fuel alternative as fossil fuel based power generation is usually done on a larger scale.
