presently Bangalore is facing problem w r t power shortage, reason is hydropower plant dams are not getting sufficient rain fall in the monsoon. But in the outskirts ceaseless wind with high velocity at altitude of 800m to 900m from the mean earth surface. High altitude wind is powerful and that has another important advantage, it is stable and constant. This is true practically everywhere. This paper suggests a revolutionary innovation which produces a dramatic increase in power per unit and is independent of prevailing weather and at a lower cost per unit of energy extracted. The main innovation consists of large free-flying air rotors along with electrical generator positioned at high altitude 1000m, locked with help of cable. Wind speed varies from 11.4 to 15m/s estimated maximum output power is 63MW.

Item Type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)
Uncontrolled Keywords: cable, wind speed at high altitude, air rotor
