Sizing Small Wind Turbines

What's on this page?


Here at Automaxx we offer 3 different sizing small wind turbines (400W, 600W and 1,500W). When deciding which wind turbine, selecting the appropriate turbine size and capacity to meet your specific energy needs and location conditions. Here are the steps to help you determine the right size for your small wind turbine:

Determine Your Energy Needs

Start by calculating your average monthly and annual electricity consumption in kilowatt-hours (kWh). This information will give you a clear understanding of how much energy you need to generate with your wind turbine.

Should your electricity requirements be more than what 1 wind turbine can provide, with Automaxx wind turbines can be connected together to increase the amount of electricity provided. Automaxx wind turbines can also work with a hybrid system so that it can work in conjunction with your existing solar panels.

Assess Wind Resource

Evaluate the wind resource at your location. Obtain historical wind data or use online wind resource maps to determine the average wind speed and wind direction throughout the year. Wind speed is a critical factor in sizing a wind turbine, as it directly impacts its power production. More wind more electricity can be produced.

Select a Turbine Class

Small wind turbines are typically categorized into different classes based on their capacity and energy output. Common classes include micro (less than 1 kW), small (1 kW to 10 kW), and medium (10 kW to 100 kW). Choose the class that best matches your energy needs and wind resource.

Consider Turbine Efficiency

Here are Automaxx, we are both the brand owner as well as the manufacturer of all of our Automaxx wind turbines. All Automaxx wind turbines are manufactured in Taiwan to ensure quality if our products. Automaxx wind turbines are designed from the ground up with efficiency and performances to work well under multiple characteristics of wind conditions as one of our primary focus.

Calculate Power Output

Automaxx provides a free Ampere meter with every purchase of Automaxx wind turbines for our clients to visually see the amount of Ampere the Automaxx wind turbines are producing at any given time.

In addition, our more advance Automaxx wind turbine models, we have a free app that can connect to our advanced models of wind turbines. Through the app, you can better monitor the electricity that is being produced by your Automaxx wind turbines.

Account for Site-Specific Factors

Take into account any site-specific factors that may affect wind turbine performance. These factors could include nearby obstacles (trees, buildings), terrain, and local wind patterns.

Budget and Cost Analysis

Consider your budget for purchasing and installing the wind turbine. Factor in not only the turbine’s cost but also expenses for installation, tower, foundation, and any required permits or electrical work.

Maintenance and Service

With every Automaxx wind turbine, we provide clear maintenance and service information in our instruction manual.. Regular maintenance is essential for ensuring the long-term performance and reliability of the system.

Battery Storage

Automaxx wind turbines are an off-grid or hybrid system, considering the capacity of the battery storage system. Ensure that it can store surplus energy generated during windy periods for use when the wind is calm.
