Fluid Flow Electrical Power

January 4, 2016

MIE Professor Mohammad Taslim has received a patent for creating a “Non-Rotating Wind Energy Generator”.


Abstract Source: USPTO

In an embodiment of the invention, a non-rotating wind energy generator uses the fluid flow principles of vortex shedding and transverse galloping to generate oscillatory, linear motion of a beam, and linear alternators, optionally located near both ends of the beam, generate electrical power when the beam is in motion.
