This project addressed two sources of turbine inefficiency: wind speed and generator costs. The goal of this research was to design a device that can efficiently produce electricity in low wind speed by using aeroelastic flutter and funneling. The intended use for this device is to provide clean and inexpensive electricity to third world villages that currently do not have access to electricity.
