ABSTRACT

 

We have designed and developed hybrid wind power (mechanical) aerator system interfaced with Solar Photovoltaic powered aerator system for lakes, ponds for shrimp and fish hatcheries and Sewage Treatment Plants (STPs). Wind power aerator is the device harnessing the wind power through three blades which are connected to eccentric shaft and the shaft is connected to bellows which suck the air through non return valve and deliver the pressurize air through non return valve to the diffuser through pipes suspended in the basin of lake or pond. To maintain the DO level throughout the day for lakes ponds and STPs, Solar Photovoltaic powered aerator output is synchronized with wind powered aerator. Water Suspended diffuser is attached with copper / silver electrodes for ionization to control the algae growth, pathogenic bacteria and virus to control BOD. The onsite observations and results are discussed in detail.
