Diplomarbeit, die am 30.06.2003 erfolgreich an einer Universität in Italien im Fachbereich Faculty of Engineering eingereicht wurde. Abstract: Wind power is an more and more import supply of renewable, clear power. In spite of this, solely the strategies and the supplies of building have improved over time, whereas the primary working precept of the wind turbine continues to be the similar because it was centuries in the past. In this thesis we have now elevated the energy of a wind turbine by a issue of four in a fluid dynamic simulation, utilizing a quite simple exterior shroud system. We have additionally prolonged the concept of wind generators (restrict of Betz), to incorporate this new form of machine and present why previous makes an attempt to enhance the energy of a wind turbine by means of shroud methods have failed. An in depth evaluation of the machine and its functioning precept is offered on this thesis – optimization research should be completed in the future.
