New Technology Outperforms Traditional Wind Turbine
New Technology Outperforms Traditional Wind Turbine In International Study
An overseas test has revealed a technology available to New Zealand businesses is capable of producing results three times greater than traditional systems according to Pacific Wind program manager Reza Sehdehi.
This week, energy and engineering company Pacific Wind released results of a year-long study comparing the output of INVELOX to traditional wind generation capabilities discovering that not only did the INVELOX system outperform a traditional wind turbine tower it's performance was triple that of traditional systems.
Rather than having turbines on poles in the air INVELOX systems place the turbines on the ground, using funnels to capture and direct air towards wind turbines.
Varying pipe widths in the system accelerate the wind utilizing the Venturi effect, a phenomenon used by Dyson airplane fans to deliver either cold or hot air to targeted areas.
This allowed the unit to produce 260% more electrical energy and 300% more power than traditional systems without any of the negative effects like wind noise or flickering.
"Make no mistake, INVELOX is the future of wind power generation," says Sehdehi.
