[Category : - ELECTRICITY & LIGHTING]
[Viewed 281 times]

An embodiment of Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT) concept with the rotating impellers and the wind vanes attached to the impellers through the vane angle adjusting device is described. This feature allows for a number of improvements over the current state of the art including damage protection and the ability to remain operational during high wind conditions. Further described is the vane angle adjusting device and the impeller with the high load capacity and increased output. In addition, the cone clutch is described that blocks the power transmission from the wind vane and the impeller in case of strong gusts or wind.
