Abstract:

Agiltron, Inc. and The Boeing Company propose a novel non-rotating wind energy generator, based upon our extensive R & D experiences on aerodynamics, electromagnetic generators, and power management. The generator will have a total volume less than 9 cubic meters, total weight less than 300kg, and generate more than 1.5kW at wind velocity of 10 m/s. The design is highly mobile with minimal setup effort because of the wide acceptance angle for wind direction. It is also inconspicuous because of the minimal acoustic and electromagnetic disturbance to the surrounding environment and its ability to be camouflaged. Depending on the available wind resource, the generator will operate in standby or power-generating modes, and it will always have a net-gain in energy (power generated is always greater than consumed). In Phase II, the numerical analysis, design, prototype fabrication, wind-tunnel testing, and field testing will be performed for portable prototypes of the non-rotating wind generator. Higher-volume production is expected in Phase III for delivery to the Army and other customers.
