It seems pioneering technology is not always good after all. A recently study has shown that present type of technology being used on wind farms, could potentially raise concerns over the low frequency vibrations generated by wind turbines.

New York design firm Atelier DNA, a second prize winner concept, during the Land Art Generator Initiative (LAGI) competition for a design for land/environmental art installations that uniquely combine aesthetic intrigue and artistic concept with clean energy generation, has an idea about how wind farms take shape in near future.

Devised as a potential clean energy generation project/tourist attraction for Abu Dhabi’s Masdar City, the Windstalk concept consists of 1,203 carbon fiber reinforced resin poles, which stand 55 meters (180 feet) high and are anchored to the ground in concrete bases that range between 10 and 20 meters (33-66 ft) in diameter. The poles, which measure 30cm (12 in.) in diameter at the base, tapering up to a diameter of 5cm (2 in.) at the top, are packed with a stack of piezoelectric ceramic discs. Between the discs are electrodes that are connected by cables that run the length of each pole – one cable connects the even electrodes, while another connects the odd ones.

As a way to maximize the amount of electricity the Windstalk farm would generate, the concept also places a torque generator within the concrete base of each pole. As the poles sway, fluid is forced through the cylinders of an array of current generating shock absorbers to convert the kinetic energy of the swaying poles into electrical energy.

Basically, Windstalk concept incorporate piezoelectric technology into the swaying poles, generating electricity from wind without the necessity of having wind turbines. Whenever the wind blow the pole, the compressed stack of piezoelectric discs will start to generate a current through the electrodes.

Base on the Windstalk concept, there will be two large chambers across the field of poles that will consist a set of pumps that will moves water from the lower chamber to the upper one. Once the wind stop blowwing, the water will flows from the upper chamber down to the lower chamber, turning the pumps into generators.

Windstalk is still a concept at this moment, no wording about the ideal height for the poles or how much poles over one field is sufficient to generate electricity for the water pumps in the underground chambers. Why don’t the designer think of pumping the water up to the pole and let the pole swaying by itself? Won’t that become an auto generated endless piezoelectric current?
