How does the Solar Wind Turbine Work?


The Solar Wind Turbine with Lever Assist is a novel innovation that uses compounding mechanical advantage in a lever-based system. By using solar-based current and diverting its energy to ducted fans that are located at the ends of the turbine extension arms, our system increases the solar power output and allows existing wind turbines to operate efficiently without any wind.

Solar Panels Power Levers

Using solar panels to create a downward force on levers spin a turbine and generate many times the power

The Use of Compounding Mechanical Advantage

Specifically designed to substantially alleviate greenhouse emissions, the apparatus accommodates custom features that primarily showcase the addition of aerodynamic ducted fans and telescopic extension rods that uniquely balance on a central fulcrum. The ducted fans initiate the spiral motion of the turbine, which further function as mechanical levers contributing torque to the central fulcrum that rests inside the generator housing. Already established and fully operating wind turbines will also benefit from this new technology by way of implemented conversion kits that attach to early and previous wind turbine models. The basis this technology is founded upon exhibits greater outputs of energy while focusing on more economical and net-zero solutions. 

Solar Wind Turbine Arm Extended

As we extend the turbine arms, the same downward force moves a greater load through the Mechanical Advantage.

The Law of the Lever    

The ‘Law of the Lever’ is a principle of movement that declares the ratio of a lever’s arm is equal to the length of the load arm itself. As a given weight is added to the fixed load, an increase in the length of the load’s arm correlates with the ease of its movability. Accomplishing this by using a central fulcrum (pivot point) provides the project’s capstone that capitalizes on the novelty of the introduced Solar Wind Turbine with Lever Assist.

This innovation draws attention to the power of compounded mechanical advantage by using hidden properties of a variable load that distributes potential energy that allows full rotation of 360 degrees on a central fulcrum.  

How a Lever Works

A Typical Lever    

Mechanical advantage from a typical lever is a measure of the ratio of output force to input force in a type of systems such as levers and pulleys. Compounding mechanical advantage is normally seen and demonstrated in a pulley-based system. Compounding pulley systems are created when a simple pulley system is pulling on multiple pulleys at the same time.

By adding a 2:1 mechanical advantage to a 3:1 mechanical advantage pulley-based system you compound, or multiply, the mechanical advantage and end up with a 6:1 (2 X3=6) If you add a 4:1 pulley to the same system, it compounds the mechanical advantage again. (2X3=6) X 4 = 24:1

People hardly talk about compounding mechanical advantage in a lever base system because when people think of a lever, they think of a “teeter totter” type lever or a large rod or board prying up on a fulcrum.

Until now, there hasn’t been any useful purpose for a compounding lever-based system. Interestingly, it’s something so important that it has been overlooked for thousands of years.

Compounding Mechanical Advantage with a lever

Compounding Mechanical Advantage with a Lever Based System


The illustration above shows how compounding mechanical advantage works with a lever-based system. Looking specifically at Lever #1, we have a lever that pivots on a fulcrum. When photons strike the ground solar panels, it is converted into electrical current that specifically powers the ducted fans placed at the ends of each lever. As soon as the ducted fans turn on, it becomes the effort and creates a downward force that pushes the lever down. In our innovation, this lever pivots on the center of a rotating fulcrum. As it pivots, it also spins a generator which is our rotating load. Since this is an actual lever, as we extend it outward, it creates mechanical advantage from the effort of the arm length divided by the load arm length. For this simple example, let’s say the MA is 2:1. For every 1 pound of downward force, it creates 2 pounds of torque. 

Solar Wind Turbine


This would be amazing enough if we only had one lever rotating around a central fulcrum. By adding Lever #2 and Lever #3 to the configuration, something completely different happens. Now, with 3 pounds of total input force, together they create an output of torque that equals to (2 X 2 = 4) X 2 =8 pounds of torque. This is compounding mechanical advantage. 

In order to gain something, you have to give up something. That “something” is normally the length. In a pulley-based system, you have to pull the rope twice as far at a lower force to lift the same load.

The unique thing about a lever-based system is that it rotates in a full 360-degree loop. In the pulling of the rope pulley-based system you are constantly pulling that rope. In a closed loop system, the downward force is in a never-ending loop. As the ratio of each lever simultaneously increases through telescoping extension, the output torque increases substantially at the same time. 

Taking that same 1 pound of initial downward force and extending each of the three levers long enough where they generate 4:1 mechanical advantage each, when we compound the mechanical advantage of the same example, the output torque is increases substantially. This was all accomplished by only extending the extension rod arms. 

When Archimedes said, “Give me a firm place to stand and a lever and I can move the earth”, that is exactly what he meant. We can never have a lever that long, but we can use compounding mechanical advantage to power the entire world.

Solar Panels Used to Power Ducted Fans Are More Efficient

In traditional solar panels, usually made from silicon, or other semiconductor materials collect photons and release electrons to produce electricity. This inefficient process has basically stayed the same since conception. The Solar Wind Turbine with Lever Assist Via Compounding Mechanical advantage takes that same electrical energy and specifically uses it to power ducted fans which are located at the distal ends of the extension rods (Levers). The small amount of energy created to power these ducted fans pushes down on the lever and creates torque as the lever pivots on the fulcrum. When this is accomplished, it rotates the load with mechanical advantage. As we add more levers (Extension rods) it compounds the mechanical advantage.

How Compounding Mechanical Advantage works with a lever-based system.

Conversion Kit for Existing Wind Turbines

The above image is a left-side view of the conversion kit with typical turbine housing. The conversion kit is a novel atypical approach that is intended to replace standard turbine blades that are conventionally known and used on current and early wind turbine models. Depicted on the left side, the conversion kit is engineered to bridge the solar rotating disc in association with the extension rods via a wireless magnetic connection. The conversion kit is designed to replace standard wind turbine blades by removing said blades and attaching them with an updated custom blade assembly.

This model with lever assistance only utilizes sun to rotate the turbine. As the sun photons are absorbed through the disc solar panels, the electricity creates a circuit through the positive and negative contacts. The incremental amount of energy generated by the disc solar panels powers the ducted fans, which starts the disc rotating. As the solar rotating disc gyrates, there is a wireless magnetic connection in which the leads do not touch to create a wireless electromagnetic induction.

This wireless magnetic connection limits friction and provides the least amount of resistance as the disc spins. The onboard electronics controls all functions throughout the entire system. When the solar rotating disc operates, it spins the main shaft while turning the generator. This displays the intended purpose of the proposed system which achieves the compounded mechanical advantage via application of the lever system as described in the previous drawings.

The invention is not limited to the scope in this description and covers all aspects of scalable turbines in its preferred embodiment. Unless otherwise defined, all technical and scientific terms used herein have the same meaning as commonly understood by one of ordinary skill in the art to which this invention belongs. The instant invention may be embodied in other specific forms without departing from the spirit or essential attributes thereof, and it is therefore desired that the present embodiment be considered in all respects as illustrative and not restrictive.
