The Winga E-Generator is a new generation of augmented wind turbine that can produce up to 5.4 MW of power at wind speeds of 4.0 m/s. As illustrated by its power curve, typical for each of the three 1.8 MW generators per turbine, full power can be obtained at wind speeds as low as 4.0 m/s and in turn this increases the turbines capacity factor to above 80%. This performance is achieved through much higher flow stream velocities obtainable using the augmentation effect of a convergent, divergent and ducted tunnel design, and through the use of a high solidity, annular rotor design.
