A wind turbine is a popular name for a device that converts kinetic energy from the wind into electrical power. The correct description for this type of machine would be aerofoil-powered generator.... More > The result of over a millennium of windmill development and modern engineering, today's wind turbines are manufactured in a wide range of vertical and horizontal axis types. The smallest turbines are used for applications such as battery charging for auxiliary power for boats or caravans or to power traffic warning signs. Slightly larger turbines can be used for making contributions to a domestic power supply. Arrays of large turbines, known as wind farms, are becoming an increasingly important source of renewable energy as part of a strategy to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels. This calendar presents detailed images of various photos for fans interested in technologies of the wind turbine under the holiday season and brand new year.< Less

During the Second World War, following the development of the jet engine by Sir Frank Whittle, the Rover Car Company became involved in the development of Whittle's gas turbine powered jet engine. As... More > a result of this work, and following the end of the war, the company's engineers turned their attention to using gas turbines for cars and commercial vehicles. Noel Penny, one of Rover's engineers grew steadily enthusiastic about the gas turbine's potential and later became in charge of the company's work. Following on from Jet 1 and other later designs, his attention turned from cars to heavy trucks and, when Rover became part of British Leyland, Penny found himself in charge of Leyland Gas Turbines Ltd.Then Penny had the opportunity to found his own company and gained work from Caterpillar Inc. in the USA. His business designed other small gas turbines for aircraft. This book, while being Penny's story, also covers the work of other companies including Chrysler, Daimler, Ford, General Motors, Mack and Volvo.< Less
Magnify the Power of Your Domestic Wind Turbine With a Stirling Heat Pump By Andrew Hall
