Abstract: Wind power plant installation is take place in very large scale with high range of energy producing wind plant to reduce the gap of the power demand. But according to our geographical report the wind flow in India is not up to that range. So the generation of a power in the wind plant is not continuous feasible in normal condition. So this paper analyses the Venturi effect to concentrate the air flow to the turbine blades with convergent section.

 

Keywords: diffuser augmented wind turbines; low pressure; wind energy; wind power; convergent section; performance evaluation; turbulent flow; horizontal axis turbines; micro wind turbines; India; Venturi effect; power generation; air flow; turbine blades.
