Bigger Ducts!

 

Interest in our turbines isn’t the only thing growing….so is our duct size!  So I thought I’d post a sketch of the 4 meter unit as compared to our 2.5 meter turbine.  Blade design is still in the works.

Wind Tunnel Testing

Getting ready to bring the rig up to the University of Waterloo Wind Turbine Test Facility next week! Very exciting, to say the least.  I will try to post some of our results here as we progress. The plan is a series of tests first with the open rotor , then the ducted configuration optimizing the pitch angles and rotor location in the duct. And we now have all 3 aluminum blades thanks to Package One Industries!

Demo days in Rochester, NY

DTI displayed the turbine prototype in Rochester on October 5, 2016, as part of the NEXUS-NY Demo Days wrap-up. The outdoor market was a terrific venue for the event and representatives from NYSERDA were on hand. Our manufacturing partner, P1 Industries arrived in time with our new blade and were very warmly received! Next stop: The Wind Tunnel at Waterloo!
