Abstract
Agiltron, Inc. and Engineering & Scientific Innovations, Inc. propose a new 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 much less than 300kg, and generate more than 3kW 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 camouflage, minimal acoustic and electromagnetic disturbance to the surrounding environment. 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). The technical approach will be proved in Phase I through the numerical analysis, design, prototype fabrication, and wind-tunnel testing. Portable prototypes of non-rotating wind generator will be produced in Phase II for delivery to the Army.
