Vertical Wind Turbine – Project created from the need to find supplemental energy from a renewable system. The vertical wind turbine was designed to be simple to build, low cost, and able to function in almost any area of the world. Specifically, the turbine was designed to work in areas of the world with wind speeds that are just below those required to generate self-sustaining energy. The main design of the turbine mimics a supercharger in an engine, but in reverse. The air is funneled through a variable opening that can either increase or decrease the force of the air as it hits the inner blades. Once the force hits the blade it safely can exit the bottom of the machine safely dissipating the captured air.
