Abstract

This research is on ventilation fans to generate electricity for broiler houses using the principle of an energy storage system from the Flywheel Energy Storage System--FESS. The tunnel ventilator operates on a 50-inch rotor of which dimension 108 cm (W) x 137 cm (L) x 40 cm (H). It uses a motor to drive a belt pulling the pulley to drive the wind generators. Generator power size 15 kVA is installed on the shaft to work with energy from the flywheel. The generator belt is pulled at a constant speed of 1,500 rpm. It supplies electric power to an LED light load in the broiler with a voltage of 220V, 50Hz. Experiment to find the right size of a motor on 1 and 3 HP with speeds of 1,450 and 2,830 rpm, respectively. The research compared the speed of rotation from the pulling force of the shaft with the electricity generated from the power wheel system. The results found that the wheel rotation rate was 790 rpm, to drive generator motor on 3 HP wheel at 1,550 rpm, making the maximum power at 1.2 kVA. While working with flywheels without fan blades, both electric motors sizes, it was found that the motor speed was 50% different. When the belt was connected to the flywheel fan blade, it resulted in a wind speed of 7.5 m/s. The research compared the electricity generated from the power wheel system. The results show that when used to create a way to conserve electricity in the chicken house, it can reduce the monthly cost of 10,000 baht.
