Wind stories (video): Wind-water pumping in Argentina

A video that 500rpm put together showcasing their last year’s wind-water pumping activities!

During 2019 we implemented the Project: “Improvement and diffusion of the water pumping system with wind energy and electronic control. Solutions for rural residents of the Patagonian steppe of Argentina.” The objective that we share between # Fundación500RPM and # LCA-UNSL (Laboratory of Automatic Control of the National University of San Luis), is to develop a robust, effective, efficient and accessible pumping system for rural residents of Argentina and the world.

The developed system consists of: a 350W #Piggott wind turbine; a diaphragm pump (popularly known as a “toad pump”); an electronic system consisting of a small bicycle motor and an electronic board (this allows the system to be operated without the use of batteries).

The following participated in the project: #AERINTAEsquel (Rural Extension Agency of the National Institute of Agricultural Technology of Esquel) – # Colegio Politecnico701 de Esquel – #MunicipaidadEsquel

El sistema desarrollado se compone: de un aerogenerador #Piggott de 350W; una bomba de diafragma (popularmente conocida como “bomba sapo”); un sistema electrónico que se compone de un pequeño motor de bicicleta y una placa electrónica (esto permite accionar el sistema sin uso de baterías).
