Non-Turbine Wind Generator

leave a comment »

From: Green Tech Gazette – June 23, 2008

An interesting article (with video) on a non-traditional form of Wind Energy: Non-Turbine Wind Generator | Green Tech Gazette

According to that article, instead of generating electricity using a turbine based on the traditional two- or three-blade design, the non-turbine wind generator is based upon the flutter of long strands of kite material spanning a gap and connected to button magnets on the ends that produce electrical current. The design was conceived to provide an inexpensive solution to micro-wind energy, but has the option to be scaled up to meet larger power generation needs.
