As the world slowly comes to the full realization of the devastating effect of global warming, AFFG prides itself with being one of the most innovative technological inventions of our time. AFFG is a brilliant design for an alternative source of energy. AFFG depends on the wind as a source for its operation. AFFG has been hailed for revolutionizing the use of wind energy. Conventional wind turbines which currently used for power generation have faced little or no changes from the way they were being built over a century ago.This novel idea was sparked in 2007 when inventor Mr. Mike Lakhani was studying electric and hybrid cars. It led him to research the possibility of recharging their batteries through a more convenient method. This birthed the Compact Wind and Water Turbine System (CWWTS) which eventually evolved into what we now know as AFFG. AFFG has a patent number 8536725 in the United States of America and countries under the Patent Cooperation Treaty and a few other nations. AFFG operates on the principle of alternator, motor and generator. It is quite portable with the ability of generating outstanding amounts of electricity. Although it is designed to run on wind energy, this innovation has no blades like traditional wind turbines.
Its application is vast, cutting across land, water, air and even for the space application. What makes this innovation stand out from thousands of other patents in the industry today is how it aims to keep vehicles moving without a need to stop for battery recharge or refuel. In either electric or hybrid vehicles, AFFG continually ensures the batteries are charged and maintained at high levels. It means long distances can be travelled without any need for recharge stop. In addition, hybrid vehicles get the opportunity of saving on fuel, as they can now completely run on the electrical energy. Carrying more than one of these turbines ensures there will always be a backup.
It is worthy of note that just like other machines, the AFFG technology has a few shortcomings. Currently its most worrying limitation is with drag. AFFG rotates to overcome the wind. This makes it a subject to drag. Drag simply refers to the opposition offered to motion that goes against the movement of the wind. Drag can be visualized in several instances and has also been overcome in various ways by scientists. In airplanes for example, when they fly against the wind, it employs thrust and directs its flaps such that aircraft can takeoff. During landing, the direction of these flaps becomes positioned in such a way that aircraft takes advantage of maximum drag to slow down to a stop. In the case of sailboats, they can travel in the direction of wind or against it by adjusting their sail. On the same note, when paratroopers jump from midair, they take advantage of drag in addition to their expertise in ensuring they can land precisely. A person wearing a jet suite or other gliding devices can effectively fly for a longer duration of time using various techniques to overcome drag. AFFG is already at the doorstep of overcoming the hurdle posed by drag.
Our latest research is geared towards ensuring this technology becomes more versatile by reducing number of batteries in vehicles with AFFG, and as such maintain durability!
