Project Type MQP Submission date 2012-04-25 Authors Richard Anthony Holak, holak890@WPI.EDU, CE Michael Mourkas, CE URN E-project-042512-132038 Title Enclosed Vertical Axis Wind Turbines Advisor O'Shaughnessy, James C., CE Availability unrestricted
Enclosing vertical axis wind turbines (VAWTs) could increase the efficiency of the turbines; In addition, a wind funneling system may help further benefit the power output. Wind tunnel testing concluded that enclosing VAWTs shows potential to increase efficiency. Additional wind tunnel designs were completed to look for further increases in efficiency through wind funneling.
