Our Bionic Learning Network took inspiration from the flight of birds once again when developing the DualWingGenerator. In contrast to conventional small wind turbines, this cutting-edge technology uses two pairs of counter-rotating wings instead of rotor blades to generate energy.
Their active rotation means the wings are always set so that air flows on to them at the optimal angle. This enables the adaptive system to achieve an optimal energy yield with a very high, scientifically proven efficiency. We already had this so-called active torsion in 2011 with the SmartBird as a technical solution. When developing the artificial silver seagull, we studied how birds actively rotate their wings and thus make the most energy-efficient use of the wind conditions.
The DualWingGenerator is self-optimising and can adapt itself to different wind conditions. It is in no way inferior to conventional small wind turbines in terms of efficiency and even has astonishing advantages at low wind speeds. In the range between four and eight metres per second, the turbine has a very high, scientifically proven efficiency.
Amazing result: ultimate efficiency at low wind speeds, such as those that prevail in Central Europe
