Wind Amplification - Let's Turn Up the Power!
Abstract:Power generation by a wind turbine increases eight-fold with doubled wind velocity. In this project, an apparatus which amplifies wind was designed, built, and tested. The apparatus increased the electricity generated by 1.7x on average. An analysis comparing amplified with traditional turbines found the amplified turbines to be more cost effective, more efficient in land use, and to show potential for the home market.
