WINDCHARGER™ technical details
(FULL DESCRIPTION BELOW IMAGE)
A: TURBINE BLADE
It is designed with a concave/convex angle curvature for a precision fix to create a vortex for maximum torque. Blade configuration will be used to create higher rpm using a 3-blade model for different wind speeds. Gravitational stresses are exactly even. Based on the Savonius, vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) design, the lift and drag co-efficiencies are usually normalized by the dynamic pressure of the direct air attack.
The leading edge of the blade is designed for the tangent force and to direct the flow along the air strakes, which are ribbed. The center of the turbine blades meets at a precision angle to create a vortex. The blades are aerodynamically efficient to extract maximum performance. Material used to construct the blades is lightweight composite, resin, plastic combo, for light weight and strength, extreme weather and UV protection. Life expectancy is about 20 years. Omni-directional air attacks low level wind.
B: AIR DISRUPTERS
The drag side of the turbine blade features indentations designed to break up the even airflow pattern on the surface. It creates a layer, or boundary, of air directly over the surface. As the back of the blade moves through the air, there is less resistance and friction. These indentations are placed in a pattern to create a boundary air flow over the surface to decrease the drag effect, increasing the revolutions per minute (rpms). The dimple pattern will also benefit the strength of the blade.
C: AIR STRAKES
The plurality of the rows is designed to channel and capture the air flow. Front inside of turbine blades has indented channels that run in parallel horizontal lines. From the outer edge they are wider, toward the center shaft where they are thinner. They increase in depth and decrease in width. They are ribbed on both sides to hold the airflow and channel it toward the center shaft, where there are air jet exits. This flow will create ram jet propulsion, along with a stronger capture. The rib design is for rigidity and prevents flexing.
D: AIR JET PORTS
Holes that propel air through one blade onto the next blade are designed to exhaust air flow out of the blade and help push the following blade. Smaller exit port to a larger port will have a vacuum vortex effect on the drag side. These ports are designed to displace much of the airflow from the center vortex, increasing the direct attack to accept more wind at a higher efficiency. The overall effect is to dissipate the dead zone. Elimination of air from the center shaft will increase efficiencies in the realm of torque and revolutions. Expulsions of air on the convex side will increase the boundary flow.
E&F: UPPER & LOWER FLAP
They are designed to capture leading air at 45° angle. Directional flow will be to the center of the turbine blades, so it channels and captures the vortex flow. The drag side of each flap is to deflect air away from the unit, so no stale air is left. Inside flaps will increase the air volume and increase torque drive for maximum capture and utilization of impending air.
G: OUTSIDE TORQUE CONVERTERS
Designed for various applications and usage, these handle various applications, such as high wind, bigger generation to low wind. Different blade configurations, including air scoops, air foil that range from 4” to 16” capture outside air directly, or angled to recapture the vortex air flow for maximum torque. It maintains low startup and increases surface area for main force. Harnessing the outside torque will create faster startup rotation along with maintaining higher revolutions. The outside converters will absorb the turbulent flow, and increase the driving pressure oriented to impinging wind as desired for different operating environments and conditions.
H: DIRECT DRIVE SHAFT
The shaft incorporates a “plug and play” application of the turbine blades, all in one unit. Directly connects generator rotor to the shaft as one. No outside bearings or gears. Turbine blades are secured within the shaft and closed off at both ends with machined caps. It is designed for one worker to assemble.
I: LEADING EDGE
Designed to meet the airflow at an angle to extract and capture air flow, the leading edge features a triangular shape and extends out of the turbine blade. The concave configuration of the scimitar curvature is designed for minimal wind resistance. Sustaining the vortex flow into the center mass, it spans the entire length of the blade. The fixed edge angle will help to accelerate the blade and contribute to an increase in low start up. They will ensure air-flow into the strakes and decrease front stagnation. Impinging air is captured with higher efficiency.
