A wind turbine 20 has a turbine wheel 22 with a perimeter rim 24 and/or an intermediate rim 117 that are concentric with the axis of rotation of the turbine wheel. Electrical generators 46 and 48 are placed in engagement with the rims, with the generators formed in pairs that engage opposite surfaces of the rims. The electrical generators are mounted so that they may move laterally in response to the axial “wobble” likely to occur in the rims of the turbine wheel.
1. A wind turbine assembly for generating electricity, comprising: a turbine wheel support member,a wind turbine wheel mounted on said turbine wheel support member, said wind turbine wheel including a laterally extending central axis of rotation, a circular perimeter rim concentric with and rotatable about said central axis of rotation, and a circular intermediate rim concentric with said perimeter rim and positioned between said perimeter rim and said central axis of rotation and rotatable about said central axis of rotation,intermediate sail wings supp...
