Abstract

Wind turbines have very limited geographical application and this project hopes to solve that issue. If this project can place a cone in front of a wind turbine then the turbine will perform more efficiently. Making the cone has been done by using very specific cuts of foam. These cuts have been used to combine each other and create a cone. This cone will then act as a template for a metal prototype. The prototype has performed better than placing the turbine directly in front of a wind source. This data showed that this could be improved further. This project has already proven to be a success. This project also has the potential to be better. This has the potential to extend the range of wind turbine use. This result will only happen if work is continued on this project which will be done.
