The Selsam SUPERTURBINE(TM) Off-Shore Concept
High shaft speed RPM - No transmission - Direct-drive generator
Lighter weight - Less material required -  Less Visual intrusion
Easily Towed and Installed in Deep Waters or Shallow - Plug-and Play
Floating, Tilting, and Moveable - Eliminates rigid foundation and associated permits
Self-aiming - Eliminates yaw control
Carbon fiber driveshaft replaces heavy steel tower
Does not twist cable - Eliminates slip rings or untwisting
Tilt-up deployment - No crane, large ship, nor large crew required
Tilt-down maintenance - Heavy components near surface level
Low maintenance costs - easily towed to shore or serviced at sea
A floating, tilting, self-aiming, array turbine reduced to a single moving part



The Selsam Off-Shore SUPERTURBINE(TM)  lowers costs by eliminating all unnecessary components that do not directly contribute to power generation.  Flotation near the surface forms a fulcrum, with the weight of the rotors and driveshaft balanced by a downward force from mooring below.   The result, combined with the force of the wind, defining the projecting angle of the shaft.  The rotors can be staggered, spiral, or in line.

Because the generator is attached with a universal joint it allows for the unit to tilt but not rotate.  This innovation eliminates slip rings and the power cable unwinding procedure.  It is analogous to bending your back; You can tilt forwards, backwards, and side to side yet the nerves in your spinal column do not twist.   A simple bending stalk is an equivalent structure.  Many other mooring methods, including interconnected mooring grids, are appropriate depending on windfarm layout, number and size of turbines, local marine traffic, tides, currents, waves, and depth.

The generator is located close to the top bearing for easy access and a consistent airgap.
The shroud extends high above the water line to minimize salt water splashing the seal.
The seal can be under oil or air pressure to ensure protection from the elements.

With increasing distance, the offshore Selsam SUPERTURBINE(TM) merges into the seascape


With addition of a blimp, the offshore Selsam SUPERTURBINE(TM) can become even more powerful.  The thickened hollow base of the driveshaft is buoyant, spinning in the water, acting as the main bearings of the turbine, with the entire apparatus tethered by the relatively small bearings of the generator, located within the floating base.  This patented, spinning, aqueous bearing system may also be used in above models with no blimp.

Superturbine(R): The simple answer!

   click image
The floating, tilting, offshore Selsam SUPERTURBINE(TM) has patents issued in the U.S. and pending worldwide.  Doug wrote the cover story Floating, Tilting, Multi-Rotor Turbines for the July/August 2005 issue of Windtech International Magazine, published from the Netherlands

Conventional wisdom from windfarm planning separates rotors by several diameters for reasonable performance.  Our constant, vertically offset geometry allows closer placement because positioning of the rotor array relative to the wind direction is predetermined.  Since the top of one wake transits the lower edge of the succeeding rotor, energy normally lost to wake vorticity is recaptured.  Like a flock of geese, each rotor favorably affects the next in line. Like a set of louvres, the tilted rotors pull in fresh wind from above, deflecting their wakes downward to insure fresh wind for succeeding rotors and, like a stack of kites, to add overall lift which helps support the driveshaft against gravity and downwind thrust forces.  The rotors act as gyroscopes or spinning tops, stabilizing the driveshaft where they are attached.  Reduced wind shear at sea, the fact that the lowest rotor is first, and bending back of the upper shaft, all tend to equalize the power reaching all rotors


The concept is as simple as one could wish - a floating buoy with a projecting driveshaft and rotors.


A variety of float configurations are possible including a platform


It is possible for the water to act as the bearing, as shown above in Fig. 17 - the generator depends from the floating, rotating, cylindrical base, and is moored so as to counteract rotor torque


Superturbine Inc. is a California Corporation

It also works on land... Yes it is all patented




Early testing confirmed the stability of co-axial, multiple rotors on a carbon fiber driveshaft

Click on image above for full story - Latest power curve documents generation into a slightly higher voltage, which raises output significantly!  The graph on the left is the raw scatter-plot data, with superimposed actual power curve, interpolated by the computer - The graph on the right is the same except it is corrected to sea level!
Data was taken at one minute averages at 5000 feet elevation at windtesting.com in Tehachapi, CA in July 2004.  Diameter is 7 feet.  Tower height is 60 feet.  Anemometer placed at height of 3rd rotor from the front, on a separate tower about 50 feet from prototype tower.
The fast pace of the Selsam designs have evolved into this 6000 Watt (peak) power monster. Latest data show 4000 watts at 27 mph.  Add 13% to correct for 5000 feet altitude. Instead of having one large rotor like most wind turbines, this Selsam Superturbine (TM) utilizes seven smaller rotors for faster rotational speeds.  Higher rpm allows a smaller, lighter, direct-drive generator, eliminating the need for a gearbox.


More Rotors = More Power!

May 2004 - Power Curve Data
from Windtesting.com in Tehachapi, CA - old news - lower power was attained previously, testing at a lower voltage.  The performance was very impressive but more recent numbers are even better! When corrected for 5000 feet altitude, the numbers are quite astounding.


Click on image above for full story of record-setting new wind turbine.

This 7-foot diameter turbine produces 4000 Watts in 27 mile per hour winds, measured as DC after rectification.  Correction for the thinner air at 5000 feet elevation brings true output rating to 4500 watts.  This project is funded by the California Energy Commission (CEC) through the Public Energy Innovation Research (PIER) Program, and the Energy Innovations Small Grant (EISG) Program administered by the San Diego State University (SDSU) Foundation.

Simple in its design, the turbine is an engineering beauty.  The driveshaft is made from carbon-fiber formula-1 racing car driveshafts bonded to carbon-fiber hang-glider spars.  This government-sponsored project has by far set the world record for power output at all wind speeds from a 7-foot diameter wind turbine of any type.

GENERATOR & WIRING:
Heavy Duty SuperturbineTM Generator Utilizes Rare-Earth Neodymium Supermagnets, and Sealed, Double-Wide Bearings
Note the three (3) wires:  The initial output is called "wild 3-phase AC" power, a sinusoidal 3-phase alternating current that varies in frequency with the wind speed.  Most people run 3-phase down the tower using a 3-conductor cable, such as 10-gauge like an extension cord, or heavier cable, depending on voltage. We provide a rectifier that changes 3-phase to DC (+/-).  The rectifier can be located at or near the tower base, or near the inverter or battery room, or anywhere in between.  A brake switch, to short out all 3 leads of the wild 3-phase coming from the generator, should be installed near the tower base.  Braking works best with a short wire run.  If you order a Grid-tie voltage we will provide an overvoltage protection device called a WindyGIRL http://www.windygirl.biz

TOWER OPTIONS
We're happy to fabricate any tower adapter, usually pretty easy. Our yaw bearings (bronze bushings) fit inside a 1.75" inner diameter steel tube. We can ship you one with a 2" O.D. steel tube with a .120 wall, similar to the 2" vertical tube of a Rohn tower top section.  You can then weld this tube to what you have.  U-Bolts can be used to fix it to a wood utility pole.  Insert bronze bushings top and bottom, insert turbine, fix set-screw collar below lower bronze bushing to lock in place
.
We also adapt other companies' tower plugs like Southwest WIndpower.  We match the bolt pattern for the Southwest 2.5" water pipe tower insert, with our 2.5" water pipe insert, a 2.5" O.D. tube with a .375" thick wall.  We replace Whisper 175's on 5" water pipe towers routinely.  Send us your tower plug and we adapt it to our turbine. The SuperTwin is compatible with most small wind turbine towers, including Rohn towers, Skystream towers, water-pipe towers, wood utility poles, etc.  We can fabricate a mount to bolt to any hard points. We figure for a max thrust of 1000 lbs. Mounting on inhabited wood structures not advised.  Consult an engineer, knowledgeable installer, etc., if you are in doubt of your knowledge and skills.  Do your homework.  Don't assume anything. Make sure you have access to the turbine when you want access without scheduling a visit from a crane, if possible.  Towers are where people start getting hurt, please be careful and do not exceed your capabilities.

The California SuperTwinTM has 140 square feet (10' diam.) or 200 square feet (12 ' diam.) of swept area.  This turbine is a serious power-producer and could potentially power most or all of a whole cottage or small home that conserves well, in a high wind area.  Please do not confuse our power rating of 2000 watts with the "fantasy ratings" of many "toy turbines" that you may see elsewhere.  We are in a completely different league with regard to making real, serious power.  "Swept area" is the first factor that determines output - having dual rotors doubles the swept area.   SuperTwinTM generates more power than similar-sized turbines even claim, let alone deliver.  Their best-case wishful thinking is our reality, and then some.  To Order a SuperTwinTM now, in the USA please call 714-992-5594

IMPORTANT NOTE:  WindyGIRL is intended for turbines that can be electrically braked from full power to a stop.  A long distance of wire from the turbine may affect braking performance of any attempt to stop the turbine electrically.   A very long run of thin wire between a brake switch and the turbine may in some cases allow the turbine to keep running even when the leads are "shorted out" (brake is on) since the length of wire itself has enough resistance to present an operating voltage to the turbine.  Consider this when placing your WindyGIRL since it also acts to brake the turbine electrically.  Therefore consider limiting the length of your wire run, using very thick wire, and/or placing the WindyGIRL reasonably close to the turbine for best braking results.  Choose an inverter that is big enough to handle your turbine. We want to hear your experience with WindyGIRL so we can continue to make it the best it can be.

the  SuperturbineTMSuperAlternatorTM
SUPERTURBINE PMA Alternator Wind Turbine Generator 2kW+
High Voltage, Low Wind Speed, Low Cogging : Full Power of 2 kW at 600 RPM, depending on current draw & voltage of load


SUPER-ALTERNATOR!  (2 kW High-Voltage Permanent-Magnet Alternator)
The MOTHER of all PMA's (Permanent Magnet Alternators)
Shown next to a Delco 10-Si alternator for comparison
35 mm diameter driveshaft, 5.5" long projection forward from case
Attachment bolts: 1/2" diameter
Inside Distance Between mounting ears of case: 4.130"
Output:  3-Phase
Alternators are named for their nominal voltage at cut-in speed of 8 mph for a 12-foot diameter rotor

Output Voltage vs RPM for the "240-Volt" model:
0.8 Volts per RPM
12 Volts @ 16 RPM
40 Volts @ 50 RPM
80 Volts @ 100 RPM
200 Volts @ 250 RPM
400 Volts @ 500 RPM
500 Volts @ 625 RPM
600 Volts @ 750 RPM

This Alternator is the perfect size for an 8-foot to 12-foot diameter Wind Turbine rotor.
The voltage range is perfect for use with a WindyBOY Grid-tie inverter, also available through this seller.
The WindyBOY requires over-voltage protection, (WindyGIRL) also available through this seller.
You can turn your meter backwards using your own home-built wind turbine, based on this SUPER-ALTERNATOR!
(See below for description of WindyBOY inverter and WindyGIRL over-voltage protection, also available from this seller.)


Three output wires deliver 3-phase electricity. with both voltage and frequency proportional to RPM.

This SUPER-ALTERNATOR is WAY MORE POWERFUL than the PMA's you are used to seeing on E-Bay.
The Superturbine(R) Alternator weighs a whopping 32 LBS!!!
compare to PMA's based on the Delco 10-si series, weighing in at a mere 10 lbs.
This SuperTurbine(R) Super-Alternator is good for sustained output of 2000 watts, on a tower with wind blowing thru.
For ground-based use, consider a cooling fan.
Ths alternator is capable of 10 kW output in short bursts.
But the factor limiting sustained output of any alternator or motor is temperature, which can quickly start to climb, ending in a burnt-out stator.
We will not be responsible for a burnt-out stator, since this is a SUPER-BEEFY alternator, well-proven for hours of sustained full output.
Since we cannot control what you do with it, you gotta see if it is getting hot and take steps to prevent overheating, cause that is just the name of the game in wind energy.
Perfect for VERTICAL-AXIS Machines, which often turn slower and have trouble reaching useful voltages at low RPM.
We can make you an alternator wound for ANY voltage range, all you gotta do is ask.

Made in USA.  Highest quality materials and components, nothing to wear out. 
If properly loaded, this machine should last forever. 
Extra-heavy-duty sealed bearings can be replaced, but we have never worn out a bearing yet, in years of use, in the harshest arctic and desert environments!
90 Day warranty parts & labor for defects in materials or workmanship.

This sale is FOR THE ALTERNATOR (PMA) ONLY!
You will need a rectifier to turn the 3-phase output to DC, if you want DC output. 
Call and we can set you up with a rectifier: 714-992-5594

Shipping Weight: 35 LBS.
Shipping Free in the U.S. & Canada!!!
We ship immediately!

Good Luck and Thanks for your business!


The SuperAlternator, using High Temp Neodymium SuperMagnets, the most powerful PMA on the market, outweighs and outpowers 3 Delco alternators.

You can expect the above power curve using a 12-foot diameter rotor that has furling or other overspeed protection
