Low-RPM Electrical Generator
PYTHEAS Technology offers piezoelectric generators particularly suited for the slow motion characteristic of many renewable energy sources. Through several years of research and development, this patented technology offers several advantages:
– High efficiency, independent of the speed, even at low speed (<10RPM)
– Constant torque with electrical control (MPPT, Regulation)
– Stand-alone solution with direct drive, between the prime mover and the load
– Production of direct current by design (no rectifier needed)
PYTHEAS Technology offers generators adapted to low speed applications (<1RPM to 50RPM) and low to intermediate powers (100W to 100kW).
They are attractive for a large range of renewable energy sources: wind turbines, hydropower (water wheel, Archimedean screw), marine current turbines, wave energy…
