O-Wind Turbine

O-Wind Turbine

The O-Wind multidirectional turbine spins on a single axis but can harness gusts coming from any direction. The turbine mechanical motion makes use of Bernoulli’s principle. It relies on differences in air pressure to generate momentum. They line the structure with vents that have large entrances and smaller exits for air. In the presence of wind, the difference between the two terminals causes the turbine to move, with vents placed across the sphere making it receptive to wind from any angle.
