Venturi Wind Turbine
The venturi wind turbine has been developed for high torque low rotor speed applications such as water pumping, water desalination, air compression and pond aeration. The twin rotor configuration creates an area of low pressure between the rotors. This low pressure area reduces the drag of the rotors and allows more power to be extracted from the wind. As air accelerates between the rotors the air pressure drops. This pressure differential is used to create lift on the rotor airfoils as they return in the direction of the wind.
Venturi Systems is seeking companies that can commercially develop this machine for environmental projects and is willing to negotiate fair terms regarding licencing use of this technology.
