Movie 1

We are arriving on the 25th of September in the year 2030 in front of the Öresund bridge. A new type of wind turbine is turning around to produce electricity in quantities which ten years ago were estimated not to be possible. The rising demand for clean energy had been a propellant to convert more and more wind energy with the RES - Giga tube at lower cost. How could this mutation leap in the conversion of wind energy happen? Unprejudiced SURVEY of wind turbines, state of the art in the year 2020 and also present in the GIF revealed that three quarters of the structural mass are serving the purpose to install a generator at 140 meters above sea level while the rotor accounts only about one quarter to the total mass of the turbine. At the time development of a new kind of wind turbine already had begun and on the 25th of September 2020 a new design saw the light of the day for the first time. From than on the success of the RES - Giga tube was worldwide. Later on it has been acknowledged that the fusion of the turbines load bearing structure with the rotor had been a very good idea. Radically simplifying the blueprint for a wind turbine the load bearing structure now almost entirely was made up of a multitude of rotor blades connected among each other to form a rotational hyperbolic grid shell structure. Twenty meters above sea level the generator is integrated in a ring shaped base. The rotor blades of the RES - Giga Tube wind turbine change their orientation to the orbit at each nodal joint of the grid shell structure. Therefore it was possible to reduce the overturning moment at the base substantially.



Movie 2

Offshore on the North Sea the Res-Giga Tube with flipped over rotor blades can convert kinetic energy of wind into electricity up to 50 MW and more per unit. The Res-Giga Tube is approximately 480 meters high and has a diameter of about 200 meters at its base. The asymmetric profiled rotor blades are regularly flipped over at nodal connectors of the grid shell structure, to change their suction side from the outside to he inside of the orbit. Lambda reaches up to five times the wind speed, allowing the suction forces resulting from uplift, - which by the way is one third higher in comparison to a symmetric profile - to be balanced between the leeward half and the wind ward half of the turbine's orbit and vice versa. One revolution of the giant tube lasts more than a minute which is important for its impact on the ecosystem as well as for its visible impression. The structure of the Giga Tube is a hyperbolic grid shell with rigid connections between the rotor blades.



Movie 3

The RES - Giga Tube - combinig a new aerodynamic system with a grid shell structure to produce clean energy for the past Covid future, which soon will start ! In the outback of Australia the Res-Giga Tube with flipped over rotor blades converts kinetic energy of wind into electricity, up to 50 MW and more per unit. The Res-Giga Tube is approximately 480 meters high and has a diameter of about 200 meters at its base. The asymmetrically profiled rotor blades are regularly flipped over at nodal connectors of the grid shell structure changing the orientation of their suction side from the outside to he inside of the orbit. Lambda reaches up to five times the wind speed, allowing the suction force resulting from uplift, - which by the way is one third higher in comparison to a symmetric profile - to be balanced between the leeward half and the wind ward half of the turbine's orbit and vice versa. One revolution of the giant tube lasts more than a minute which is important for its impact on the ecosystem as well as for its visible impression. The structure of the Giga Tube is a hyperbolic grid shell with rigid connections between the rotor blades.
