A fluid-augmented free-vortex power generating apparatus (10) that is driven by either prevailing winds or water and which has a turbine (24) that includes a number of axially extending cup like sails (20) mounted on a freely rotating hub (22). A fluid mover (28) in the form of a fan or blower as would be used when the fluid medium is air or a water pump when the fluid medium is water, tangentially directs a flow of fluid under high velocity onto the turbine sails inducing rotation and creating an unconfined vortex around the apparatus (10). A power gene...
A fluid driven power generating apparatus comprising: (a) a turbine having a plurality of aerodynamic shaped sails, (b) a vortex excitation fluid mover tangentially directing a flow of fluid under elevated velocity and pressure onto the turbine sails inducing rotation thereof combined with naturally occurring fluid flow creating an unconfined vortex of fluid around the turbine, and (c) a power generator connected to the turbine producing energy from a rotational force developed by the vortical effect causing a partial vacuum to occur directly above said ...
