Edona, new paradigm of wind turbine

Unleashing Limitless Wind Energy
through
Simple and Innovative Design

 

Our flagship invention "Building Integrated Wind Turbine" is designed
to be installed on buildings to utilize enhanced winds around buildings
and maximizes energy generation capable of generating power at wind
speed as low as 1 m/sec. It is cost effective to install and maintain,
eliminates all weak points of conventional wind turbine design and
produces clean energy efficiently leaving no carbon footprints behind.

Covid-19 has brought us unintended positive consequences of clean air.
We aim to take this momentum forward and replace carbon-based
energy with clean and renewable energy.  

 
 
 
Our innovative guide track design
maximizes wind to power conversion
 
The wind turbine system is based on a unique operational principle
which allows its blades to operate with the minimum resistance and
the maximum energy conversion efficiency. The blades move along
guide tracks which are strictly defined by a set of unique equations
and operate in a way to minimize resistance against winds. 
 
Maximum Efficiency
with Minimum Wind Resistance
 
 
 
The blades operate in a simple mechanism based on a set of unique
equations, minimize resistance against winds blowing in the direction
opposing their rotation, and realize power generation with a high
energy conversion efficiency.
 
Higher Torque Generation
 
 

The farther the blade is from the central axis,
the greater the torque.

 
Wind Power
on Commercial and Residential Buildings
with Minimum Noise
 

Edona "Building Integrated Turbine" can be attached to buildings
horizontally or vertically without tower support taking advantage of
wind effect on buildings to generate sustainable power to buildings.

 


 
The external surface areas of buildings increase the wind collection effect
for the turbines installed on buildings which can potentially convert wind
into power proportional to the cube of the wind velocity.
 
1 m/sec Cut-in Speed

Minimum wind speed
to generate power

 
 
 

The advantage of wind effect on buildings along with minimum resistance
of Edona turbines can lower the cut-in speed to as low as 1 m/sec and
makes it possible to generate power continuously even in cities with low
average wind speed which is much lower than conventional turbines used
today. It is scalable and flexible to be installed anywhere, any location with
any conditions. The units can be installed on buildings in urban settings to
be energy self-sufficient with added benefits of stabilizing buildings
during high wind conditions by absorbing vibrations. Multiple large
unit installations can form a wind farm harvesting unlimited wind power.

Flexible Design
without Tower Support
 


 

Sizes and dimensions of light-weight Edona turbines are flexible and scalable.

Multiple units can be stacked on top of each other.

 
 
 
Simple and Robust Design
by Multi-Axes Support
 

Edona turbine's sails spin at a lower speed than the wind speed and
its multi-axes support design allows safe operation of the turbine
at high speed with minimum noise level.

 
 

The outer frame of the system consists of four supporting rods (S) and
the top and bottom plates, and each blade is supported at multiple
points (A, C, B), which allows the system to operate even in extremely
high wind at natural wind environment.

 

The structure of Edona turbine is designed in such a way that
movement of the parts does not put undue stress to each component
with Minimum friction at each of the contact points.

 
Easy Installation
and Low Maintenance
 

Less burden to building with no need for tower installation
and overall light-weight material for blades.

 


 

Our wind turbine is a simple design and economical to produce and
install. Simple design with small number of parts lends itself to
minimum installation and maintenance cost compared to large wind
turbine systems with complicated design and numerous parts
contributing to degradation of performance due to friction and heat.
The Edona wind turbine system with smaller number of parts and
small friction can operate longer than conventional turbines between
maintenance thereby reducing the overall long-term operating cost.
