Abstract

1518151 Wind and water driven rotors E W H CHRISTIE and A M PECK 14 May 1976 [14 Feb 1975] 6424/75 Heading FIT A wind or water driven rotor 1 comprises at least two longitudinally extending helical blades 2, 2' spaced about the rotor axis with the concave sides of their curved portions 10, 10' extending through at least 90 degrees and facing in the same circumferential direction. The angle of twist of each blade times the number of blades is 360 degrees or a multiple thereof, e.g. the two blades shown each twist through 180 degrees. The wind motor shown is supported by shaft 4 in bearings 5 carried by mast 6, a pulley 7' providing power output e.g. to a generator or pump. The blades may be of sheet steel or glass fibre and may have a thickened aerofoil profile Fig. 5 (not shown). To prevent excessive loading, self closing venting ports or fail safe weaker sections may be provided. Alternatively the rotor support may deflect against return springs. Blades 2, 2' may have radial stiffening members 11 or longitudinal internal baffles (11'), Fig. 4 (not shown). Several rotors may be suspended with their axes horizontal from a support frame which is steered into wind on a circular track by vertically extending rotors. In a water driven arrangement one or more rotors may be anchored to a river bottom, mounted on floats or suspended from a bridge. The axial lift effect produced by the helical blades may be used to lift a vertically mounted rotor clear of flood waters, or in a three blade wind motor Fig. 11 (not shown) to relieve the load on bearings (31). Other mounting arrangements are described.
