Technical Description The innovative vertical axis turbine consisting of 4 sets of deflectable blades for ocean current and tidal energy application. The blade deflection is accomplished by interaction of designed roller and rails as the turbine rotates. This blade deflection not only increases the power output as the blade advances, but also decreases the resistance as the blade reverses in a revolution. Therefore, the performance of the innovative turbine can be enhanced significantly.
Scientific Breakthrough The innovative vertical axis turbine can deflect the blade by roller mechanism.
Industrial Applicability Can apply to Ocean Current Power Generation and Wind Power Generation.
