In present time the human civilization is in
need of clean energy, one such equipment to
produce clean energy is Wind turbine
Wind turbine is a device which converts wind
energy into electrical energy.
It does so by converting linear motion to
rotational motion and then to electrical energy.


Horizontal Axis have the main rotor shaft and
electrical generator at the top of a tower, and
must be pointed into the wind.
Vertical axis have the main rotor shaft
arranged vertically. One advantage of this
arrangement is that the turbine does not need
to be pointed into the wind to be effective

Helical structural turbine
Maglev turbine [2]



Conventional Wind turbine

Conventional wind turbines have a

set of 3 blades which mounted on a
high base. They have to be facing
in the direction of wind to produce
electricity, are very costly and need
regular maintenance.

Flying turbine
It contains helium to make it fly,
so it can access high speed air
The main problem with these
turbines is that, they have to be
connected to ground via wire for
The risk remains that wire can
break and the turbine can fly

Helical Structural turbine

These are touted to be the
windmills of tomorrow.
Logically, helical structures
should function better than
the traditional windmills as
they maximize the winds
energy by containing the

Maglev wind turbines

The blades of the turbine are
suspended on a cushion of
air, and the energy is directed
to linear generators via gears
with minimal friction losses.

Suggested Model



It is a type of vertical axis turbine but
without any physical contact like gear
attached to it. The power generating
part of the turbine uses NdFeb magnets
to produce flux as it doesnt
demagnetize easily. The blade design is
chosen to help free rotation.

(Helium box
rotor are
Levitated in air)

Helium Box


It is an integration of 6 blades,
with an angle of 60 between
each blade. The blades are
slightly curved from the front
and have a protruding edge on
the back to enhance its
aerodynamic property.

The movement of air due to

its shape facilitates rotation

Helium box
The box is placed below the
rotor and contains helium to
lift the whole structure. The
box is fitted with magnets to
help it balance while rotating
and a different set of magnets
which produce changing flux
to produce electricity.

A pairs of coil are connected
to this structure at a height
that is similar to that of flux
magnets. One set of coil ends
are interconnected and other
are connected to transformer.

The case contains the helium
box with supporting magnets
to balance the box and
prevent it from jumping out.

The helium box is attached to a turbine which rotates
rapidly in the presence of wind (While none of its parts
are physically connected)
In the process results in a constant change of the
magnetic poles which generates a change in magnetic
The case is kept in the presence of a Cu coil
connected to a step down transformer.
When the turbines are rotated an emf is induced in the
coils which is then used to transfer power to
households via the step down transformer.

As the whole system is levitated, including flux
magnets so ideally there is very little loss of energy
due to friction though air friction still remains.
The setup and construction of this turbine is easy.
It is ideal for household use.
As there is no part that is physically connected so we
expect very less wear and tear due to friction.

Wind is a free and unlimited resource and Helium
turbine theoretically tends to take all its energy from
it with improved efficiency. The turbine is ideal for
household use and can be a great resource for
country like India.
