THE FUTURE OF SMALL SCALE WIND GENERATION IS HERE

Discover the future of Wind Turbines with Soma.

VISION

SOMA

48Volt 1kW Wind Turbine

Soma wind turbines have been manufactured in Australia since 1978. Soma has a design philosophy of mechanical simplicity and rugged durability. All components are made from the highest quality materials to withstand long-term wear and fatigue. Corrosion protection is a high priority. The blades are constructed using a hollow mould fiberglass technique that is unique to Soma turbines.

PERFORMANCE

Large rotor diameters ensure high efficiency in light to moderate wind speeds. The brushless, permanent magnet alternators used on all Soma machines are designed to produce a power curve that matches the output of the 2 bladed rotor while operating at optimal tip speed ratios.

FEATHERING 
MECHANISM

The tilt back action relieves pressure on the wind generator and tower in strong winds. This is a fail-safe design with mechanical simplicity. A hydraulic dampener limits the feathering action in gusty wind conditions.

CHARGE
CONTROLLER

Soma wind turbine is supplied complete with a voltage regulated charge controller and dump load. If using wind turbine to charge batteries, excess power is burnt off as heat when the batteries are fully charged. The Soma 1Kw features a tapered charge regulator which progressively reduces the supply of current to the battery as it reaches full charge. By adjusting the control dial the upper voltage can be reset to enable equalization charging.
