Description

The device captures the energy of vortices, an aerodynamic effect that has plagued structural engineers and architects for ages (vortex shedding effect). 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, and 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.
