SOMA WIND TURBINES
'.The answer my friend is blowing in the wind.' Bob Dylan
PerformanceSoma Wind Turbines, in production since 1979 andmanufactured by Sunrise Solar since 1996, aremade from the highest quality materials towithstand long-term wear and fatigue. Large rotordiameters ensure high efficiency in light tomoderate windspeeds. The brushless, permanentmagnet alternators are designed to produce a powercurve that matches the output of the 2 bladed rotorwhile operating at optimal tip speed ratios. Thepropellors are constructed using a hollow mouldedfibreglass technique that is unique to Soma.
Applications include any remote sites where
alternative power is required, such as home power andtelecommunications. Feathering Mechanism
Control Panel Soma Wind Turbines are supplied complete with a voltage regulated control panel and dump load. When the batteries are fully charged the excess power is burnt off as heat. The Control Panel 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.
Sunrise Solar manufacture 13 metre and 19.5 metre guyed tilt towers
complete with brake winch. Safe, easy and no climbing!
Wind-Solar HybridThe Wind Turbine can be connected to the same bank of batteries assolar panels to create a hybrid system. Such a system provides a moreconsistant supply of power and is less affected by variations in windand solar levels.
Batteries Deep cycle batteries should be large enough to provide 3-4 days storage for windless periods. The Soma400 should have a battery bank of at least 220AH at 24 volts (or 440AH at 12 volts). The Soma1000
Hybrid home power system with Soma 1000 on 13m tower

It should take two people no more than two days to complete. Better still, contact us for a Soma dealer in your area and have it installed professionally. Sunrise Solar also manufacture a range
of winch towers which are designed tosimplify installation and maintenance ofthe Soma Wind Turbines.
WarrantySoma Wind Turbines are guaranteed tobe free of any defects in materials andworkmanship for a period of one year. Sunrise Solar has a long-standingreputation for providing complete back-up and service facilities if required.
