A wind instrument has been identified as the ‘most powerful instrument ever’ in Australia
Updated September 16, 2018 11:45:03 Wind instruments have been identified in Australia as being the most powerful instrument in the world, with a powerful wind turbine being identified as having the greatest potential for power output.
The Australian National University (ANU) says the wind instrument is the most potent wind instrument ever built in the US, and that a US$30 million wind turbine was installed at the National Nuclear Test Site (NNST) in Japan in 2018.
Wind instrumentThe wind instrument consists of a steel tube, with an array of six rotor blades, each of which rotates at a rate of 10,000 revolutions per minute (rpm) as the wind blows on it.
It is the same structure used for measuring wind speeds.
The ANU said the wind instruments is a combination of the two main types of wind instruments, and has the capability to generate the equivalent of about 200 megawatts of electricity.
The turbine has a peak power of about 20 megawatts.
It was built at the NNST by the Japanese company, Nippon Electric Power Company, and installed at Japan’s NNTS in 2018, the ANU added.
It said the ANUS was the first time wind instruments were recognised as being powerful enough to produce electricity at the US$ 30 million price tag.
“Wind instrument is considered the most significant instrument of its kind, as it is the only instrument capable of producing the equivalent electricity output of a nuclear power plant at the cost of only about US$20 million per megawatt hour,” ANU wind instrument project manager Professor Michael Smith said in a statement.
“The ANUS has the largest number of wind instrument, the largest wind turbine capacity, and the largest capacity to produce the same amount of power as a nuclear plant at a US $30 million price point.”
This achievement is due in large part to the unique nature of the ANUs unique structure.
“The ANUs researchers also say that it is possible to use the ANIUS to create large amounts of electricity from wind energy.”
If you can generate the power of the entire ANU with a single turbine, then you could generate enough power to power the entire Australian economy, which would be enough to power Australia’s entire electricity needs for a decade,” Smith said.”
And this is a great achievement for our research in this field, as this is the first ever successful demonstration of a wind instrument capable producing power at such a low cost.
“The turbine is capable of generating power of up to 15 megawatts per minute, and is capable to generate more than 30 megawatts from a single spin of the blade, which is also able to generate power.”
As well as providing power, the turbine can be used to generate heat, as well as to produce electrical heat.
“These technologies are not yet widely used in the field, but we believe that wind instruments are going to be used in many applications in the near future,” Professor Smith said, adding that there was also a lot of interest in wind turbine technologies in Australia.
