      Hi Bill, Yes, that’s been tried on smaller VAWT turbines, but doesn’t seem practical for large machines.  It also detracts from the simplicity of the machine.

       

      Kim is correct about turbines being suitable for areas outside of Houston, particularly along the coast.

       

      I’m also interested in an update on the three turbines Justin installed, especially the wind ball.

      It could be too simple, but to put a "scoop" or deflector/foil on the windward side would indeed improve rotation? That being the side where the wind would be flowing directly against the return path of turbine. I know in water energy there is quite a curve in the amount that water may follow a rotating element. Just a thought.

      One consideration about VAWT’s that many overlook is the fact that the blades are fighting the wind on the return path. 

       

      For this simple reason, VAWT have never been as efficient as a HAWT, where the blades are all working in unison and turning the same direction.

       

      VAWT’s tell a great story, but there’s a good reason they’re seldom used on a large scale.

      I believe you mean the blades are Vertical like in a Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT) instead of Horizontal which is like most of the "wind mill" kinds out there that do not work as well as Vertical Axis.

      There are a number of Youtube videos about people making their own VAWTs and a number of them are excellent designs.

      Here are a couple I like.

      Ariel,

      I have a friend that's currently designing a new wind turbine electricity generation system for home use. He's an engineer and has been working on this for quite some time. What makes his design so unique is that the turning blades set horizontally, rather than vertically. The design allows for multiple turning blades to be 'stacked', which generates far more power in the same amount of space. Plus, he's working on 'hidden housing' enclosure for the tower of blades, that has a 'chimney' look to it. It's very cool. I'll post pics of the whole thing soon.

      I'm sure many of you have seen this.  Presumably the Honeywell folks know what they are doing.  Current thoughts, anyone?
