The placement of your vertical and horizontal wind turbines can have a large effect on how much power they generate. Wind speed is a very important factor in how fast your turbine spins and therefore how much power it produces.
Placing your AtlasX at the peak of a smooth hill or sloped roof can increase the power it generates significantly. As the wind approaches the turbine it speeds up along the surface of the roof, allowing your wind turbine to spin faster and generate more power. This is the ideal spot for the AtlasX wind turbine!
If multiple AtlasX wind turbines are being used in close proximity to one another they should be arranged so they are not downwind of each other as much as possible. The air exiting a wind turbine is very turbulent and not great for power generation.
You should avoid placing the AtlasX at the edge of a cliff or the edge of a flat roofed building. The wind will hit the side of the cliff and reduce the wind speed at your AtlasX as well as generate a large amount of turbulence, reducing the efficiency of your turbine.
Aim to place your TESUP wind turbine as high as possible, on the roof of a building or on a standalone pole is great! Wind speed is slowest at ground level so making sure the turbine is as high up as possible will maximise the
wind speed and power generation.
A horizontal wind turbine should not be placed behind obstacles (like buildings or trees). Where possible the place your wind turbine should be placed ten times the height of the obstacle away from the obstacle to minimise the effect of the turbulence from the obstacle on the turbine. The turbine can also be placed on a pole so it is above the height of the obstacle.
