High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Darrieus wind
turbine is a type of vertical axis wind turbine used to generate
electricity from the energy carried in the wind. The turbine
consists of a number of aerofoils usually--but not always--
vertically mounted on a rotating shaft or framework. This design of
wind turbine was patented by Georges Jean Marie Darrieus, a French
aeronautical engineer in 1931. The Darrieus type is theoretically
just as efficient as the propeller type if wind speed is constant,
but in practice this efficiency is rarely realised due to the
physical stresses and limitations imposed by a practical design and
wind speed variation. There are also major difficulties in
protecting the Darrieus turbine from extreme wind conditions and in
making it self-starting
