WindTamer Turbines Break the Betz .593 Theoretical Limit for Wind Energy



Rochester, NY - December 2, 2009 -

WindTamer Corporation (OTC.BB.WNDT-News) today released the results of a performance report from Professor Kenneth Visser of the Department of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering at Clarkson University in Potsdam, New York. The report is based on an analysis of field testing in the Geneseo, New York area and numerical modeling at the Clarkson University.
 
Gerald E. Brock, WindTamer's founder, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and Inventor of the patented WindTamer technology, said, "We are gratified but not at all surprised by the results of the Clarkson University study. We have known for some time, based on our own testing, that WindTamer will outperform its competition by a wide margin. We have also known that WindTamer can produce energy well above the Betz Limit, which has always been viewed as the theoretical limit of the percentage of power that can be extracted from wind moving through a turbine. It should also be noted that the hubs of the WindTamer units that produced these results were only 13 and 24 feet off the ground, which makes WindTamer an extremely attractive alternative to the huge wind towers that are seemingly unwelcome in some communities. The fact that a prestigious research institution such as Clarkson University and a widely recognized, highly respected researcher such as Dr. Ken Visser have now verified our findings is an important seal of approval."

William A. Schmitz, President of WindTamer Corporation, said that, "From a sales and marketing point of view, this report reinforces our essential message, which is that individuals, businesses, wind farm developers and other purchasers of wind turbines have a new alternative that is not only efficient enough to make economic sense but is also whisper-quiet, less susceptible to wear and fatigue and safer than many turbines currently in use."

VORTICITY REDUCING COWLING FOR A DIFFUSER AUGMENTED WIND TURBINE ASSEMBLY

Inventor:  BROCK GERALD
Abstract -- A vorticity reducing cowling for a diffuser augmented wind turbine assembly is provided. The diffuser augmented wind turbine assembly includes a shroud, a wind turbine disposed within the shroud, and a diffuser coupled to an outlet of the shroud. The wind turbine includes a wind turbine housing and a plurality of blades rotatably disposed within the wind turbine housing, wherein the plurality of blades providing a swept area. The cowling comprises a body disposed upstream of the plurality of blades. The body includes an inlet end defining a first opening, the first opening having a first area. The body includes an outlet end defining a second opening, the second opening having a second area that is less that the first area. The second area is less than the swept area of the plurality of the blades.

WIND TURBINE WITH DIFFERENT SIZE BLADES FOR A DIFFUSER AUGMENTED WIND TURBINE ASSEMBLY

Inventor:  BROCK GERALD
2009-11-12
Abstract -- A wind turbine for a diffuser augmented wind turbine assembly is provided. The wind turbine comprises a wind turbine housing, a hub mounted within the wind turbine housing, and a plurality of blades rotatably coupled with the hub and radially extending from the hub. The plurality of blades includes a first blade and a second blade, wherein the first blade includes a surface area and/or a maximum width that is greater than a surface area and/or a maximum width of the second blade to increase the efficiency of the diffuser augmented wind turbine assembly in variable speed winds.
