The FAWT Silo is one of my ideas to improve the efficiency of VAWT.
we know that the best VAWT can only be 45% vs The HAWT in efficiency.
well The FAWT is a VAWT but it uses lift like the HAWT to create the rotation spin.
the idea is simple, I took the wind from a horizontal direction to a downward direction, and yes I was successfull, there is a lot more modifications to be done but few bucks at a time I can only spend my allowance, no investors yet....
i have all the uptodate pics on my site http://www.vawt.tk
i am planing to update this instructable soon, but for now you can browse the youtube vids...
please enjoy the videos and the picture galleries.
