 In present time the human civilization is in
need of clean energy, one such equipment to
produce clean energy is Wind turbine
 Wind turbine is a device which converts wind
energy into electrical energy.
 It does so by converting linear motion to
rotational motion and then to electrical energy.

and must be pointed into the wind.Classes OF WIND TURBINE  Horizontal Axis have the main rotor shaft and electrical generator at the top of a tower. One advantage of this arrangement is that the turbine does not need to be pointed into the wind to be effective .  Vertical axis have the main rotor shaft arranged vertically.

Previous models  Conventional wind turbine  Flying turbine [4]  Helical structural turbine  Maglev turbine [2] [1] [3] .

Conventional Wind turbine Conventional wind turbines have a set of 3 blades which mounted on a high base. . They have to be facing in the direction of wind to produce electricity. are very costly and need regular maintenance.

 The risk remains that wire can break and the turbine can fly away . so it can access high speed air  The main problem with these turbines is that.Flying turbine  It contains helium to make it fly. they have to be connected to ground via wire for transmission.

helical structures should function better than the traditional windmills as they maximize the wind’s energy by containing the wind.Helical Structural turbine  These are touted to be the windmills of tomorrow. . Logically.

and the energy is directed to linear generators via gears with minimal friction losses. .Maglev wind turbines  The blades of the turbine are suspended on a cushion of air.

Suggested Model .

Helium Wind Turbine .

. The blade design is chosen to help free rotation. The power generating part of the turbine uses NdFeb magnets to produce flux as it doesn’t demagnetize easily.HELIUM WIND TURBINE  It is a type of vertical axis turbine but without any physical contact like gear attached to it.

Rotor Air (Helium box and rotor are Levitated in air) Helium Box Case Coils .

. with an angle of 60 between each blade. The blades are slightly curved from the front and have a protruding edge on the back to enhance its aerodynamic property.Rotor  It is an integration of 6 blades.

The movement of air due to its shape facilitates rotation .

The box is fitted with magnets to help it balance while rotating and a different set of magnets which produce changing flux to produce electricity.Helium box  The box is placed below the rotor and contains helium to lift the whole structure. .

Coils  A pairs of coil are connected to this structure at a height that is similar to that of flux magnets. One set of coil ends are interconnected and other are connected to transformer. .

.Case  The case contains the helium box with supporting magnets to balance the box and prevent it from jumping out.

.Working  The helium box is attached to a turbine which rotates rapidly in the presence of wind (While none of its parts are physically connected)  In the process results in a constant change of the magnetic poles which generates a change in magnetic flux.  When the turbines are rotated an emf is induced in the coils which is then used to transfer power to households via the step down transformer.  The case is kept in the presence of a Cu coil connected to a step down transformer.

 As there is no part that is physically connected so we expect very less wear and tear due to friction.  It is ideal for household use. including flux magnets so ideally there is very little loss of energy due to friction though air friction still remains.  The setup and construction of this turbine is easy. .Advantages  As the whole system is levitated.

. The turbine is ideal for household use and can be a great resource for country like India.Conclusion  Wind is a free and unlimited resource and Helium turbine theoretically tends to take all its energy from it with improved efficiency.
