Why The Uprise Energy Portable Wind Turbine Is Needed

here are many niches that could be served with an off-grid, portable, renewable power generator. This discussion will focus on those that do not have reliable power as a result of not being served by an electrical grid.

Project Summary: Methods to Improve Wind Gust Energy Capture

The energy of a wind gust is typically 8 times that of the steady wind flow. A modern wind turbine has constraints preventing it from capturing the increased energy in a wind gust.  A modern wind turbine, on average, captures 25% of the available kinetic energy from wind flow. 

Problem In The Wind Industry and The Uprise Solution

The problems encountered in generating electricity from the wind and delivering the electricity to a user are numerous.  This post will address the essential element of this industry, converting the kinetic energy in wind into electricity.

Area Under the Curve - The Importance of Capturing Gust Energy

The area under the wind curve is critical to understanding the importance of wind machines and their ability to capture a reasonable percent of that energy.
