Wind turbine, enlarged swept area, 75 percent more energy

[Category : - RENEWABLE ENERGY]
[Viewed 70 times]

A rotor assembly for a horizontal-axis wind turbine with blades support attachments. Each end of the supporting elements is fixedly or rotatably attached to one blade. In a new and improved embodiment, the blades start from the support element, skipping the swept area inside these elements but at the same time increasing many times the total swept area with substantially reduced cost. The support elements might be additionally attached to already existing wind turbine rotors. The reinforcing elements support and protect the blades from bending, breaking or falling apart in strong and gusty winds. The rotor of a wind turbine occasionally will rotate with speeds higher then normal and if the blades are not reinforced and properly balanced the whole assembly may start wobbling and then break apart from the tower or the blades may be damaged or may bend or break.
