Regenedyne Maglev Wind Power Generation
Since a decade the demand for electricity is increasing at alarming rate and the demand for power isrunning
ahead of supply. The present day methods are not sufficient to keep pace with ever increasing demand. The recent severe
energy crisis has forced to think & develop the power generation by renewable sources (mainly wind power).
This project dwells on the implementation of an alternate configuration of a wind turbine for power generation purposes.
Regenedyne (magnetic levitation) has apparently moved to prototype stage. The floating blades spin with little resistance,
and the power output is increased. They also can spin in light breezes. This provides efficient frictionless Power Generation
with less maintenance, compared to Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine (HAWT).
The aim of this major qualifying project is to design and implement a magnetically levitated vertical axis wind turbine
system that has the ability to operate in both low and high (1.5m/s to 40m/s) wind speed conditions.
This new model of wind turbine uses magnetic levitation to reduce the internal friction of the rotor which is considered as a
revolution in the field of wind technology, producing 20% more energy than a conventional turbine, at the same time
decreasing operational costs by 50% over the traditional wind turbine.
Hence this technology provides an extreme efficient, versatile and elegant method of producing power from wind with
nearly zero pollution. Our choice for this model is to showcase its efficiency in varying wind conditions as compared to the
traditional horizontal axis wind turbine and contribute to its steady growing popularity for the purpose of mass utilization in
the near future as a reliable source of power generation.
Hence the main objective of this project is to harness wind energy in more efficient way with frictionless magnetic levitated
