Ecological Impact of Wind Power is Lesser on Bird Deaths Myth: Wind power has become an extreme problem for birth deaths. Nearly thousands of birds killed per unit of power generated by the wind every year. However, the insinuation of wind power is not good for birds than dirty energy sources. Fact: When compared to…

The Paris startup NewWind plans to radically change the field of wind energy with its development in the form of a tree, which with the help of “leaves” is able to generate electricity even from the smallest air flows. The eight-meter “tree” is a steel “trunk” with several dozen “branches” on which more than a…

The German research company Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft has published a disappointing report on the use of coastal wind turbines. The results are stunning: because of the aggressiveness of the working environment, the cost of repairing turbines for the entire time they are in operation exceeds the cost of a new turbine by two orders of magnitude. Renewable…

Cross- Flow Turbine is a special type of water turbine designed for mini and micro hydel projects, with low head and high flow. A German named Fritz Ossberger invented the Cross-Flow Turbine, and hence these type of turbines are often referred as Ossberger turbine in tribute to him. Principle of Operation In most water turbines…

To generate power naturally, modern technology has discovered the use of wind turbines. This is a large wheel driven by kinetic energy utilized from wind which can help produce electricity. Currently, this is the energy resource with the returns or gains in the output of its power. In 21st century, there is an increase use…

A wind turbine is a gadget creates electrical energy by changing the wind’s kinetic energy. Wind turbines are designed in an extensive variety of horizontal and vertical shaft. The littlest turbines are utilized for applications, for example, battery charging for caravans or boats or to supply power to traffic signals. Somewhat bigger turbines can be…

The gas turbine is a type of internal combustion engine therefore also known as combustion turbine. Basically, this turbine uses liquid fuel or natural gas to get mechanical energy. The basic principle of the gas turbine is somehow similar to the steam turbine but gas turbine uses air instead of water. These are three main…

The steam turbine is a type of impulse reaction turbine which converts the thermal energy into mechanical energy. The history of this turbine goes back to the first century but Sir Charles Parsons invest the modern manifestation of the steam engine in 1884. This turbine has applications in transport mediums which use steam engines like trains and ships…

Turgo Turbine was developed Gilkes Energy Company in 1919. The design of this impulse water turbine is inspired from Pelton turbine. The working principle of this turbine is same as other impulse water turbines. It converts the kinetic energy from the water jet into mechanical energy.  The main difference between the Turgo and Pelton turbine is the…

Lester Allan Pelton designed an impulse water turbine in the 1870s and named it Pelton Turbine. Impulse water turbine converts the potential and kinetic energy of the impulses of moving water into the mechanical energy in order to rotate the water wheel. Water wheels are in used for centuries. Initially, they were mainly used to milling…
