TDWG Concept Validation

WindAge TDWG Being OffloadedThe most important finding from the testing was that as the rotor assembly naturally decelerated through internal friction and decreasing wind velocity, the truck passing at 70mph increased the acceleration and output over 50%. This effectively "proved" the basic concept that passing traffic could generate useful electrical power. A second important finding was that the ambient wind should be captured whenever possible to keep the rotor momentum high, in preparation for the next passing vehicle.
