Wind Turbine Ventilator

The Technical Operational Function of The WIND Turbine Ventilator

  1. The turbine ventilator operates by harnessing the full velocity energy of the wind to include an air flow by centrifugal action. Because the air-foil vanes are lightweight and dynamically balanced, even a slight breeze will spin the turbine.
  2. When the turbine rotates, a centrifugal force is created, which then draws the air in the turbines towards the spinning vanes and out of the turbine.
  3. As the turbine rotates, the air-foil vanes act as cups which catch the wind at the windward side of the turbine. Simultaneously, air is forced out of the leeward side creating a continuous air-flow. Thus giving rise to ventilation.
  4. When air is drawn out of the turbine, a region of low pressure is created directly under the turbine relative to the other areas of the building.
  5. As there is a difference in the air pressure, air from higher pressure regions will naturally move towards the lower pressure regions to maintain a state of equilibrium.
  6. Air drawn out by the ventilators is continuously replaced by fresh air from outside the building. Therefore, it is important to have intake of about 150% or more of the overall exhaust opening of the building.
  7. Since the turbine is rotating continuously, this air-flow is also continuous, resulting in effective ventilation.
