New wind turbine that operates with wind in any direction invented
Angamaly: A group of four youth have invented a new type of wind turbine that can be operated at any wind conditions mainly favourable for the climatic conditions in Kerala.
Dhananjay, Rahul, Alvin and Rishikesh are of the opinion that the normal wind mill operates only when oriented in the direction of the wind. Even if rotating mechanism is attached, it will not operate efficiently, they said.
According to them, the new windmill is more beneficial as it occupies less space and operates at low cost. The initial cost amounts to only Rs 5000.
Named as the Maglevel Vertical Axis Winder Turbine, it can generate more electricity, they claimed.
