STRUCTURE & OPERATION

Vortex devices are quite simple in concept and allow for an easy manufacturing, installation and operation.

There is a fixed base and a cylindrical mast that oscillates freely perpendicular to the wind direction, jointed by a carbon rod.

Inner parts never collide with each other, but interact to generate electricity.

ENERGY HARNESS

When wind passes around a slender structure, vortexes of pressure are created.

The frequency of vortexes is related to wind speed, and if the structure has a similar resonating frequency, it begins to oscillate and therefore harness its energy.

This phenomena are called Vortex Shedding and Aeroelastic Resonance, and happen regularly in nature.

ENERGY CONVERSION

Similar to a regular alternator, our device gets an interaction between coils and magnetic fields, generating electricity by electromagnetic induction without need for rotation on a shaft.

The magnets also act as "Tuning System", modifying the apparent elasticity constant of the mast, and therefore widening the wind speed range.

POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS

Since our devices are low maintenance and harmless to wildlife (like solar panels), they open new horizons for wind energy in urban areas and protected areas.

However, they can take advantage of the installation zones of regular wind power, and this tech can scale up to bring its own characteristics to large-scale production in classic wind parks or huge offshore.
