Wind Amplification in a Multi-Stage System: Let's Amp Up the Power! Part 2
Abstract:Power generated by a wind turbine increases eight-fold when wind velocity is doubled. The wind amplification apparatus designed and built in 2011 was re-designed into a multi-stage configuration. Electricity generated was increased 2.70 times, with a maximum increase of 8.22 times. A "Dual Generator Turbine", which generates electricity both at the hub and around the rim, was tested in the multi-stage configuration.
