Ducted Turbine Technology

Ducted wind turbines are not a new idea. The initial idea was circulating around in the 1920's.  The basic premise is illustrated in the sketch below. A duct surrounding the rotor captures more of the oncoming wind, directing it through the rotor to increase the amount of wind energy the rotor ‘sees’.  While a proper duct design is key a performance increase, the additional cost is even more important in evaluating the cost/kWh of the turbine.    Many attempts have been made to build a viable unit and all have failed commercially.
