Shielded Savonius WEH 3D Model
3D models of the shielded Savonius wind energy harvester. The shielded Savonius WEH is a improved design of the Savonius HAWT (horizontal axis wind turbine) and allows to turn the wind inlet towards the wind using an electric motor. Below 10m altitude, HAWT’s are more efficient than VAWT’s. HAWT’s can be a good solution at places where low altitude wind speeds are high. 3 designs have been put forward; one with a half shield and large wind outlet (and an open cylinder side as inlet) , 2 with respectively 1 and 2 wind inlets and simple holes as outlets.
