Vertical Axis Disk Wind Turbine

How the turbine works: Rotatable shutters mounted on a circular disk automatically open when directed into the wind, irregardless of the wind’s direction. Pairs of upper and lower shutters are geared together. The lower shutter acts as a counterweight to the upper shutter. The bottom shutter opens in the downward direction and its weight helps to lift the upper shutter in the upward direction, as the wind applies an opening force against both shutters. When the shutters reach the vertical position, stops prevent them from opening further and the force of the wind is transferred from the open shutters to the circular disk. And the circular disk is attached to the vertical axis for power output. The circular disk, shutters, and outer vertical axis rotate together. The outer vertical axis is mounted via bearings over an inner vertical axis that is stationery. The shutters are blown closed by the wind (no stops in the opposite direction) as they reverse direction during their rotation and move into the wind on the opposite side of the wind turbine. When the wind is not blowing, the shutters open by gravity because the lower shutter is weighted to be slightly heavier than the upper shutter and it therefore can cause the upper shutter to open via the force of gravity as the two shutters are geared together. Wind blows against the open shutters and the open shutters with stops apply a force against the disk, but the open shutters with no stops (opposite side going into the wind

solarcanada.biz http Thank you for your kind comments, guys! www.kjmagnetics.com NdFeB N52 Permanent Magnets are here. canadianwind.e-earth.ca Take a look at my new forum on my website. Welcome! wind turbine charges batteries for race sail boats. This wooden model of the generator was built by enterprising group of Canadian enthusiasts in order to check possibility of general useing revolutionary new electric circuit and revolutionary new design of a rotor and a stator of the generator. Materials: 8 NdFeB rare earth magnets grade 40, 12 coils of copper wire 20AWG, plywood, fiberglass, copper tubes. Why do we do that? We want to prevent a fuel and energy crisis in the World. And we want to save our beautiful planet of Greenhouse gases. Our business proposal for Canadian and international entrepreneurs is very simple. We are looking for an investor who wants to invest funds in renewable energy sources in Canada. Why do we need this capital? We would like to buy land in windy area in Canada. And there, we would like to build a wind power station with our revolutionary design of electric generators. And then we would like to sell available electric power to customers (including your interests!!!). If you interested by the idea above, please feel free to email us your wishes at: canadianwind@e-earth.ca CANADIAN WIND WORKSHOP GROUP, www.canadianwind.e-earth.ca

50kW wind turbine installation, Maple Honda, Maple Ontario

Maple Honda will install a private wind turbine at its new dealership in a unique partnership with Power Stream. In keeping with leading edge technology pioneered by Honda Motor Co. Maple Honda has taken the innovative step of integrating energy efficiency in an automotive work place. “This is a new venture for both Power Stream and our leading regional automotive dealership. Our goal is to provide a tangible model for alternative energy options in Ontario. The Production of wind energy creates no air pollution and, if the turbines are sited properly, has minimal environmental impact.” says Mr. Zanchin. This is the first commercial-scale use of wind power to generate electricity in the region. The wind turbine will provide supplemental wind power to Maple Honda, and will produce approximately 110 MWH/Yr-which is the equivalent of powering 17 homes. It removes 82.5 tons of CO2 emissions/Yr and is completely Canadian made. Maple Honda will open for business in early fall 2006.

A look at the Windmax HY400 power performance as compared to a plastic sword bladed car PMA system. Note: Not ONE of the car PMA turbine suppliers has posted a video proving their power claims. That should tell you something. If you do buy from them, use Paypal, otherwise you can kiss your money goodbye.

GREAT VERTICAL WIND TURBINE

We are currently seeking investors, and manufacturing companies to license, purchase patent rights, or enter into a royalty agreement for this, and our other inventions from “DW”- the inventors of this innovative new product. When you think about it, almost every great advance in medicine, art, engineering, politics, religion, design, and RULES FOR THINKING, in general, has occured when people challenged the previous rules of thought and tried a new approach. Here’s a unique inexpensive use for bamboo to make a vertical windmill. This is a new “spin” for bamboo! Let’s get this inexpensive vertical wind turbine product producing power in India, Africa, Asia, and other tropical bamboo growth areas globally. (pp) The power output can be adjusted to suit the given resource of wind currents from any direction. We have a solar photovoltaic componet add-on at high speed rotation as a hybrid energy additive for storage or kick laucnhing the “first motions”! (rotational inertia) It is said that fully 70% of the economy in areas of India come from bamboo products. Here’s one that produces energy & money long after it’s built. In addition, solar cells have been shown to last 25 years or more, so the additional high rpm solar umbrella on top, is a must! With this VAWT, ALL WINDS ARE ACCEPTED FROM ALL DIRECTIONS! (no tail fin needed) Also, this VAWT has easy, low to the ground maintenance, –and cheap materials & as always, it’s “cost per watt” to the bottem $$$$$$- line. To capture a

Cannon Power Group is a leader in financing wind energy projects

Learn how Cannon Power Group, during challenging economic conditions, successfully financed the development of WP/WF, one of the largest wind energy projects in the United States. The wind farm’s array of turbines spans 30 miles along the Columbia River ridgeline and will produce 500 megawatts (MW) of renewable power at its completion. Each turbine was manufactured by Siemens and collectively generate enough clean electricity for over 250000 households per year.
