R&D / Quality

Uncompromising activities for research and development and quality improvement

Zephyr is making every effort to enhance reliability, sustainability, and economy for customer satisfaction, by working together with industrial, academic, and governmental institutions in Japan and other countries.

Performance Test

Truck Test -Tsukuba Racing Circuit

Zephyr monthly implements “Truck Test” in Tsukuba, Japan. The test is supported by The National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), a public research institution funded by the Japanese government. Compared with Wind-tunnel Test, more practical data can be collected by testing in natural wind conditions.

Field Test -WEICan (Wind Energy Institute of Canada)

The small wind turbine Airdolphin GTO has experienced a field test in WEICan (Wind Energy Institute of Canada), an international research institution of small wind generator, located in Prince Edward Island, Canada. The test proves not only safe and continuous operation but also excellent performance in power generation under the low-temperature and strong wind condition.

Endurance Test - in laboratory

Zephyr has experimented several tests - low and high temperature (from -20 to 60 degC), water-proofing (IPX6), and dust-proofing (IP5X), for securing performance in extreme conditions. The tests show that Zephyr’s wind turbine can survive and perform in severe environment like desert, mountain-top, and frigid places.
