Title (EN) INFLATABLE WIND TURBINE
(FR) EOLIENNE GONFLABLE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A wind turbine has an impeller surrounded by a shroud. The shroud is formed from inflatable components extending between two rigid structural members. When inflated, the shroud acts to increase the energy generated by the impeller. Under adverse wind conditions, the inflatable components can be deflated to reduce surface area and wind load on the turbine.
(FR)L'invention concerne une éolienne comprenant une hélice entourée par un carénage. Le carénage est formé de composants gonflables s'étendant entre deux éléments structurels rigides. Lorsqu'il est gonflé, le carénage agit de façon à augmenter l'énergie générée par l'hélice. Dans des conditions de vent défavorables, les composants gonflables peuvent être dégonflés pour réduire la zone de surface et la charge de vent sur la turbine.
