Title: POWER GENERATOR
Abstract:
An apparatus (10) for generating electrical power from wind energy (20) comprising: means (22) for forming at least two discrete jets of air (24) from an oncoming wind (20); a conduit (16); and at least one wind electricity turbine (14) located within the conduit (16), wherein the jets (24) are arranged to enter the interior of the conduit (16) from different directions and to converge towards a point or points (20) located within the conduit (16). The apparatus (10) may additionally comprise an inlet aperture (22), the inlet aperture being adapted to face towards, and to collect a stream of air from, an oncoming wind (20); and a manifold communicating with the inlet aperture (22) and being adapted to split the stream of air into a plurality of discrete jets (24), the manifold comprising a manifold outlet (28) for each jet (24); each manifold outlet (28) communicating with the interior of the conduit (16) and being arranged to cause their respective jets (24) of air to converge towards a point or points (30) located within the conduit (16). A method of generating electricity using the apparatus is also described.
