ADDITIONAL SPEEDS

Additional speeds are obtained due to the reduction in the cross-section provided by the tapered flow ducts in the wind turbine, which creates a tunnel-like effect.

The air stream is given a twisting movement through the internal, annularly arranged flow ducts. This momentum is generated by the clockwise rotation of the enclosed turbine.

The denser and more controlled the movement of the air is, the faster and more powerful the flow becomes. The resulting potential turbulence exhibits an independent acceleration effect.

From an energy technology viewpoint, the objective is not only to use the kinetic fraction of the energy contained in the air, but also the considerably larger amount of potential energy stored in the form of pressure..

SUCTION EFFECT

The faster stream, which runs past the outer rim of the wind turbine, exerts suction on the slower flow behind the turbine, where underpressure predominates. The velocity of this stream is previously slowed by the collision with the rotor blades. The underpressure also serves to raise the speed in the flow ducts.

The high kinetic energy of such air streams cannot be emulated using pressure. Rather, the enormous kinetic energy of the normal, but chaotic, wind stream only obtains a utilitarian structure once suction is applied. Like pressure, the suction then spreads to distant areas.

WINDGIANT® systems use the effect of suction, the force of implosion, whereby the natural wind force is concentrated and accelerated. As the power available to the wind turbine is proportional to the cube of the wind velocity, maximum energy returns of energy are obtained from all usable wind forces.
