The LE-600 is a downwind turbine that is light and robust yet delivers fantastic power output in all wind conditions.
The LE-600 is designed around a unique low inertia axial flux generator which utilises Neodymium rare earth magnetic materials. This alternator has zero ‘cogging’ which, together with its highly efficient and low ‘TSR’ Whispower blades, allow the turbine to generate power at very low wind speeds and deliver a higher output than the competition in high wind speeds.
The LE-600 survives destructive high winds by means of a passive aerodynamic design that limits turbine RPM and power output at a certain threshold. The downwind design reduces the size and weight of the turbine, whilst ensuring that there is no tail boom to amplify natural vibrations and eventually fail. The integrated yaw slip-rings and unique ‘X-wing’ chassis allow the turbine to track the wind direction perfectly.
