The Archimedes Wind Turbine


Supported by old documents from Archimedes we revived the ancient Greek mathematician’s work, and developed new theories and techniques that more closely follow the natural laws of physics for energy. Archimedes was one of the greatest scientists and thinkers in ancient Greek history (Syracuse, Sicily, 287 BC, there in 212 BC).

Most today’s wind turbines require that a difference in pressure between the front and the rear side of the rotor blades be maintained in order to be effective. However, this difference in pressure also has a negative effect called “drag”.

Our turbine rotor captures the kinetic energy of the wind due to its speed, and, by reversing the wind and reducing it to almost zero Beaufort converts it into mechanical energy. By doing this the wind speed’s effect (in kinetic energy) on the rotor is maximized and “lift” is obtained by the wind’s acceleration over the rotor area.

Important for the customer to know is that “green” energy has now become more cost-efficient because of the efficiency and because of the low cost of the Archimedes urban wind turbine. What is important for the environment is that zero CO2-emission, the cause of the greenhouse gas effect, will be its result thanks to the teamwork at The Archimedes BV.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
