The BWC EXCEL is a modern 7 meter (23 ft) diameter, 10,000W wind turbine designed for high reliability, low maintenance, and automatic operation in adverse weather conditions.
It is available in three configurations: battery charging, water pumping, and grid-connected.
The BWC Excel is a ruggedly built turbine that comes with the longest warranty (5 years) in the industry.
Battery charging BWC EXCELs can be supplied with outputs of 24, 48, 120 or 240 VDC. They are well suited for large rural homes, remote villages and facilities, eco-tourism resorts, and larger telecommunications sites.
The EXCEL wind turbine series is nominally rated at 10 kW. In a battery charging application, however, there is an inherent load matching problem between permanent magnet alternators and battery banks. The EXCEL-R is optimized for low wind speed performance, which maximizes energy production. But providing the best performance in low winds results in some reduction in peak power under high wind conditions. Therefore, the EXCEL-R is rated at 7.5 kW.
As a water pumper, the BWC EXCEL can be located as much as 600 m (2,000 ft) from the well to take advantage of improved wind conditions. It can replace small diesel pumps from 5 - 15 Hp for either drinking water supply or irrigation.
Connected to the grid, the BWC EXCEL can provide most of the electricity for an average total electric home at moderate wind sites. The all new GridTek 10 power processor (inverter) is the most advanced in the industry and it carries a full UL certification to the latest utility standards.
