US8257020B2 – Wind Turbine System For Buildings – Google Patents

The present system allows the use of cylindrical-type turbines with their axis of rotation parallel to the ground, reducing the stress on the bearings and allowing inexpensive long-life bearings to be employed. In one embodiment, an energy generation system makes use of a cylindrical turbine having multiple blades that are parallel to the axis (axis of rotation) of the turbine.

The position of the turbine structure can be adjusted by means of various types of mounting brackets, the use of various mounting holes in the brackets, and so on to allow positioning that is optimal for the given site and prevailing conditions. The position of concentrator 350 may be manually or automatically adjustable. The system may also include solar cells mounted on the concentrator and configured to generate electricity from sun light contacting them.

The concentrator is adjustable and may employ solar cells to generate additional electricity. In other words, if the wind flow is sufficiently high that the turbine structure may be damaged, concentrator 350 may be positioned to block, or spoil, the excess wind flow, using an automatic spring loaded pivoting system. The wind can only flow upward and over the building, or around the building. The generator produces electrical current that can be used to power electrical circuits in the building and/or to recharge batteries that can store the energy for later use. They may instead be mechanically coupled to other sections to provide additional mechanical power to another section that has electricity generating equipment. Additional pulley and belt systems as well as a gearboxes may be integrated into the turbine system. In the exemplary embodiment described above, the turbine structure is placed near the edge of the building.

The foregoing description corresponds to an exemplary embodiment. As the wind pushes the blades of the turbine, the blades rotate on a shaft that is on the axis of the turbine. The adjustable concentrator allows the device to compensate for placement issues that may make it difficult to place the wind turbine at the point of greatest air flow. FIG. 5 is a diagram illustrating the air flow over a concave angled deflector which is mounted in front of the turbine at the bottom.

The wind which is not blocked by the building continues to flow essentially horizontally. The concentrator, extending past the building edge 410, concentrates the updraft airflow contour near the edge of the building, directing air flow into rotational vortex pattern, to prevent moving air from passing up and high over the building, beyond the reach of the wind turbine’s blades.

FIG. A que se debe un dolor de espalda . 1 is a diagram illustrating rotational vortex wind flow near building edge created by updraft winds from vertical face of building. A deflector may be attached to the parapet wall (if existing) or the turbine frame itself to redirect the concentrated wind flow toward a desired portion of the wind turbine to increase efficiency. The sail material may be attached to the frame by hook-and-loop material 338 (e.g., “velcro”) so that the attachment to the frame fails, or it may be sewn together so that the sail material itself tears. The structure may be built in modular sections (e.g., from 4 to 20 feet in width and from 2 to 8 feet in diameter.) This may aid installation and allow systems and/or components to be easily and economically mass manufactured, shipped and installed.

3. one embodiment employs a turbine portion 335 which is eight feet long (into the page in the figure.) A first set of three blades and supporting arms (e.g., 331 and 332) are shown using solid lines. 31, 2006, both of which are hereby incorporated by reference as if set forth herein in their entirety. The present types of turbines in commercial use are generally deployed in open fields or mesas, as far from wind-slowing obstructions as possible to allow wind to strike their airfoils or blades at maximum speed. The invention relates generally to wind turbines, and more particularly to systems and methods for harnessing energy from vortex winds created by strong updraft winds flowing vertically along a building wall.

FIG. 2 is a diagram illustrating the effect a deflector or existing parapet have on wind vortex created from building updraft winds. Referring to FIG. 3, a more detailed diagram illustrating the structure of a wind turbine system in accordance with one embodiment is shown. FIG. 4 is a diagram illustrating a reverse-wind-flow deflector as used in one embodiment. It should be understood, however, that the drawings and detailed description are not intended to limit the invention to the particular embodiment which is described. Although it may be omitted or given a variety of shapes, the concentrator (also called a baffle or augmenter) is used in the preferred embodiment to funnel moving air into the wind turbine. The wind will still be used to drive the turbine through proper placement of the system and through the use of a concentrator or augmenter.

Connected turbines may operate at different speeds using a flexible drive shaft coupling. SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION This disclosure is directed to systems and methods for using wind turbines that solve one or more of the problems discussed above. Medicamentos para dolor de hombro . This mechanism may be implemented using the concentrator, and or a separate spoiler(s) which are positioned along the length of the turbine. The lever may be manually locked or opened by hand, or an automatic locking/unlocking mechanism 341 may be provided. A lever (or bearing switch or other mechanism) can be provided so that, when the lever is in an open position, the swivel base rotates atop the roof, turning into the direction the wind is strongest. In one embodiment, the wind turbine is coupled with a system of pulleys to a generator which generates electricity when driven by the wind turbine. While the turbine portion of the wind turbine structure is designed to rotate in the same direction (clockwise in the figure,) regardless of the direction from which the wind strikes it, a reverse-wind-flow deflector 440 is positioned behind the wind turbine structure 430 and is oriented with surface 450 toward the turbine structure so that wind hitting the deflector is directed to the lower half of the turbine portion.

The pulley drives a belt or chain that in turn drives a generator or alternator. For instance, in one embodiment, the turbine blades may be made from a sail material that tears away from a blade frame to protect the structure from destructive winds. It should be noted that in one embodiment, turbine portion 335 includes two sets of blades that are offset from each other, both along the axis of the turbine and angularly.

The mounting brackets may include vibration-dampening supports to reduce the transmission of generated noise into the building. It is not necessary, however, to use this type of turbine design, and other embodiments may use propeller-style or other types of turbines, and the turbines may be oriented horizontally, vertically, or otherwise.

In other words, the wind is not blowing over the deflector at the edge of the building, but is instead coming across the rooftop. Other segments may incorporate a water pump instead of an electrical generator, to help pump water through the building, or a fresh air system to reduce HVAC costs and force fresh air into the building when the temperatures are correct. Turbines can be installed on multiple sides of the building to optimize the system for variations in wind direction with changes in seasons or weather conditions. As pointed out above, the system can be installed on multiple sides of the building to optimize the variations of the seasons and general wind direction.
