Because of them. with the help of our seminar guide “Mr.TADVI” it seems much more interesting to write this thesis than we expected. provided direction. Besides our friends showed their kindly help & support in our thesis.B. M. POLYTECHNIC. technical information and advice at all stages of our seminar and it’s our pleasure to say vote of thanks to all of them.J.This PSP seminar report shall be incomplete if we do not convey our heartfelt gratitude to those people from whom We have got considerable support and encouragement during this seminar. Many people have helped. Also we are very much thankful for our college SHRI K. living in Bharuch & studying in K. However.polytechnic (Bharuch) is a nice time. ABSTRACT . which provide us a good study environment & available access to get literature. J.

operational costs some 50 percent cheaper than windmills. but the real proof will come when these things get put to use. with Chinese power company Zhongke Hengyuan Energy Technology currently building a $5M factory to produce the turbines in capacities from 400 to 5. The aim of this major qualifying project is to design and implement a magnetically levitated vertical axis wind turbine system that has the ability to operate in both high and low wind speed conditions. That all sounds great. wind capacity has grown about 45% to 16. enough to replace 1000 traditional windmills and power 750 thousand homes. which use full-permanent magnets to nearly eliminate friction by "floating" the blades above the base.7GW and it continues to grow with the facilitation of new wind projects.This project focuses on the utilization of wind energy as a renewable source. . According to developers. which may happen sooner than you'd think: Development is proceeding rapidly in both the US and China. and an estimated lifespan of 500 years.000 watts. Our choice for this model is to showcase its efficiency in varying wind conditions as compared to the traditional horizontal axis wind turbine and contribute to its steady growing popularity for the purpose of mass utilization in the near future as a reliable source of power generation. The benefits of maglev wind turbines. Additional benefits include the ability to generate power with winds as slow as three miles per hour. In the United States alone. the technology is capable of scaling to massive sizes.
