An innovative seawater desalination system using non-grid-connected wind power is developed. The system makes full use of the cheap, clean, and renewable sources: non-grid-connection wind power. The system adopts the low-temperature, multi-stage, high-efficiency desalination technology to produce cheap fresh water. It includes five major parts: fixed-pitch variable-speed wind turbine, power converter system, control system, seawater desalination unit and pump units as electrical loads. The system's large-scale deployments can change the power transmission into the freshwater transmission ashore, which leads to 25% cost reduction and good business prospects in the world.
