Rutland 914i Windcharger
New Rutland 914i Windcharger up to 30% more power !Marlec are pleased to announce our latest innovation in micro wind turbines. The Rutland 914i Windcharger intelligently uses Maximum Power Point Tracking technology to perfectly match the generator operation to the turbine speed thus achieving a highly efficient power output.
This innovation has enabled the Rutland 914i to retain the compact diameter of the highly successful 913 model whilst being capable of capturing up to 30% more energy.
The increased power performance is yet another product improvement from the Marlec development team who have taken this compact 910mm diameter turbine from an original output of 50W @ 10m/s (19knots) to the new power rating of 140W @ 11m/s.
How have we achieved this improvement ?At Marlec we know that space on board your yacht is an absolute premium so our aim is always to get more power from less turbine!
We have achieved this power production increase through the use of modern electronic controllers programmed to intelligently match the characteristics of the generator to the constantly varying speed of the micro wind turbine.
Thus we can extract more power from the same “swept area” of blades for our customers whilst the increase in efficiency also brings less wear on the components too.
Is the Rutland Still as Quiet as Ever ?Yes, we’ve been certain to ensure the 914 matches the reputation of our previous models for quietness especially on board.
