INTRODUCTION
 Energy is one of the most fundamental parts of our universe. Energy is a

property of objects which can be transferred to other objects or converted
into different forms, but cannot be created or destroyed.
 This paper throws light on micro power generation, whereby each
household sustainably generates their portion, or all, of their own electric
and power supply to provide heat or light.
 There are a number of ways in which households can achieve this; electric
power generation via wind turbine connected to ventilator fan is discussed.

GREEN TECHNOLOGY
 The basis of green technology is to reduce toxicity in the atmosphere and

try to build a world which utilizes renewable source of energy to meet its
daily needs.
 Helping men to live a safe and prosperous life with all benefits of

technology.
 Wind, solar and other renewable energies now produce nearly 22 percent of

the world’s electricity, according to a new report from the International
Energy Agency (IEA).

GOALS IN GREEN TECHNOLOGY
1).Sustainability: Meeting the needs of society in ways that can continue
indefinitely into the future without damaging or depleting natural
resources
.
2).Source Reduction: Reducing waste and pollution by changing
patterns of production and consumption.
3).Innovation: Developing alternatives to technologies - whether fossil
fuel or chemical intensive agriculture - that have been
demonstrated to
damage health and the environment.
4). Viability: The term is also used to describe sustainable energy
generation technologies such as photovoltaic, wind turbines, bioreactors,
etc. Sustainable development is the core of environmental technologies.

HOW WIND POWER IS GENERATED
 The terms "wind energy" or "wind power" describe the process by which

the wind is used to generate mechanical power or electricity.
 Wind turbines convert the kinetic energy in the wind into mechanical

power. This mechanical power can be used for specific tasks (such as
grinding grain or pumping water) or a generator can convert.
 Wind Turbines are obviously a source of renewable energy, as the wind

will not run out!

VENTILATOR FAN TURBINE:
PRINCIPLE:
 Wind energy is energy from moving air, caused by temperature (and

therefore pressure) differences in the atmosphere.
 wind energy is solar energy converted into kinetic energy of moving air.
 This would serve as principle for the mechanical energy generation.
 According to Faraday's law, "As long as there is a change in magnetic flux
linked with the coil, an EMF is induced." So, in each and every rotation,
electricity is generated. This electricity can be stored in a rechargeable
battery.

COMONENTS
 Ventilator turbine mainly consist two parts. They are

1.mechanical unit
2.power generation unit

Fig.no:1

1).Mechanical Unit: Betz’s limit plays significant restriction on the power that
can be extracted by the blades.
 The limitations mean more blades the less power each can extract. The
other factor is the aesthetics.
 It is accepted that three blade turbines are less disturbing than one or two
blade design.
2) Power Unit: The power unit primarily consists of a dynamo.
 The mechanical power is sourced from the mechanical unit, the shaft
connects the power unit
 The magnets are usually not made of natural magnetite or a permanent
magnet (unless it is a small generator), but they are copper or aluminum
wire coiled around an iron core.

HOW A DC DYNAMO WORKS

COMPOSITES FOR WIND TURBINE
 In order to ensure the required shape stability, strength and damage

resistance of the wind turbine rotor blades, the blades can be produced from
fiber reinforced polymer laminates.
 fibers ensure longitudinal stiffness and strength, while the resin matrix is
responsible for fracture toughness.

CONSIDERATIONS
 Power Generated
 P= Power in the Wind (Watts)
 ρ= Density of the Air (Kg/m3)
 r= Radius of swept area (m2)
 V= Wind Velocity (m/sec)
 Π= 3.14
 P=1/2 ρ Π r2 V3

Power Generated in Kw )

ADVANTAGES
 The wind is free and with modern technology it can be captured efficiently.
 It can not produce any greenhouse gases or other.
 It occupies less space.
 Wind turbines are available in a range of sizes which means a vast range of

people and businesses can use them.

DISADVANTAGES
 This model cannot be used to produce power at high rate.
 The rate of power generation is not constant throughout the year.
 This is best for coastal areas.

CONCLUSION
 The new mantra of the 21st century is sustainable development, which

means that the local population should be able to absorb the development of
a country or region.
 The benefits of using wind power over other resources lies in its minimum
operational cost.
 Modern turbines are totally controlled by computers that are totally safe.
Since wind is clean source of energy, the power conversion does not pose
any environmental hazard.
