The Future of Wind Power from an Ontario Engineering Firm

“WETSS,” Wind Energy Turbine Shell Station is a uniquely designed, makes it a breakthrough wind power technology. It solves all inherent problems with wind energy technology, such as high too high subsidized cost of output, vast too high land requirements, too much carbon emissions from unavoidable dependency on fossil fuels for backup and balance fluctuations, surplus power, too much noise, adverse environmental effects on habitats and birds, and very large distribution costs.

In current wind farms, the average amount of required backup energy is higher than the average feed-in wind energy, as theoretically proven by Yakoub 2015. That because backup generators ramp up and down which leads to much reduced efficiency. Surplus is another serious problem; surplus leads to negative energy exports, resulting in significant losses in wind penetrated grids. Surplus losses increases with penetration ratios of wind power into the grids.

Large size wind turbines used in current wind farms, are able to exploit too limited range of operational wind speeds, up to 20-25 m/sec (45.2 – 56.6 mph), while they give constant power output for site wind speeds greater than 10-12 m/sec (22.6 – 31.7 mph).

As a multi-level structure, WETSS has multi-level wind farms, requires as less as 1/500 of the required land space for current wind farms to generate similar output power capacity.

WETSS uses moderate-sized wind turbines which are able to operate in higher wind speeds and at much higher altitudes. This increases the output several times for similar swept area (although, power efficiency factor is similar of little less in WETSS turbines). That because at higher average wind speeds, (for example 15-20 m/sec at the high altitudes), there is too little energy exists in the current wind farms/turbines operational wind speeds in comparison with total energy in the whole spectrum. WETSS turbines are also easier and more economical to build. Hence, by using WETSS, it becomes feasible and practical to store wind energy in hydrogen by electrolyzing water. Electrolyzers and storage tanks can be installed at the ground level.

Every energy-conscious city in the world should have several WETSS stations to satisfy their energy needs. A city such as Toronto would need only around five WETSS stations to satisfy all their electrical needs. Each typical WETSS generates ~ 7 million BOE /year of green fuel such as hydrogen.

Features
WETSS features:
  • Multi-Level Frame Structure (Houses tens of thousands of wind turbines), a typical WETSS has ~ 150-200 stacking wind farms, one wind farm at each level.
  • Seismic and wind load Safety
  • Easy Construction from inside.
  • Economical Design
  • Sharp reduction in required land area need
  • No Noise, Flicker Effects, or Bird Danger.
  • Reduces costs of Hydrogen to less than $0.5 /kg, ($20 BOE of Hydrogen).

Capacities
Typical average capacities 4-20 GW. Typical nominal capacities ~ 10-60 GW.

Profitability
WETSS is considered profitable with return on assets (ROA) 35 % and a profit margin around 400%. OSES Engineering is looking to partner or license this tech to oil, coal, nuclear, hydro, wind, or/ and other energy companies in order to invest and establish this technology around the World.
