Data for: DESIGN AND FABRICATION OF VORTEX BLADELESS TURBINE
The devices captures the energy of vorticity, an aerodynamic effect that has plagued structural engineers and architects for ages ( vortex sheddingeffect ).As the wind bypasses a fixed structure, its flow changes and generates a cyclical pattern of vortices. once these forces are strong enough, the fixed structure starts oscillating. Instead of avoiding these aerodynamic instabilities our design maximizes the resulting oscillation and captures that energy. India is having fifth largest installed wind power capacity in the world. As the regions with high wind speed are limited, the installation of conventional windmill is limited. Windmills that would provide safe, quite, simple, affordable and work on lesser.wind speeds are need of the hour. The Bladeless Windmill is such a concept which works on the phenomenon of vortex shedding to capture the energy produced. The Vortex wind turbine has a straw shaped bladeless design. The turbine is designed to harness energy by exploiting the aerodynamic effect vorticity. The vortex uses the vibrations caused by vorticity in conjunction with a base of repelling magnets to generate electricity. The device in theory should have low maintenance costs because there are very few moving parts. The turbines can be placed closer together than conventional turbines are totally silent and cost less to manufacture. Vortex is also no danger to birds.
