Savonius Turbine, Darrieus Turbine, Deck, Anchors, Drag and Lift


The floating wind and current hybrid power generating system can be utilized to convert two renewable energy sources namely the wind energy and ocean current energy into infinite electric power. These inexhaustible power sources are harnessed which provides cost-effective power generation with minimal environmental impact. The project which consists of a either savonius or darrieus wind turbine and savonius current turbine having a floating deck and a dynamo as generating equipment reduces pollution hazardous and helps in reducing power shortage over coastal region.
