Abstract

The objective of the proposed work is to demonstrate that V Squared Wind s proprietary modular, ducted wind turbine technology meets or exceeds the specifications for a rugged, redeployable wind energy system for military base camp applications. V Squared suggests a quickly deployable, low-profile, high energy density design concept that offers significantly lower costs than required, machine size and deployment flexibility, minimal shipping volume while meeting or exceeding all other performance attributes. Such a system would save significant energy costs and eliminate the majority of the fuel logistics burden for base encampments. The performance of the technology will be demonstrated in the proposed effort through the design, fabrication and testing of a full scale prototype machine. It will be suitable for a range of military testing for durability and power production performance. The program will provide a strong basis for final design of a commercial system and rapid transition into the marketplace.
