Touchdown Aviation and Efficient Power Generation Using LPWT for Airport Lighting Systems
Energy harvesting by means of any source of energy become essential for the developing countries. Natural and renewable energy could provide clean environment to certain areas like airstrip (Run way).Mostly energy harvesting is achieved through wind source become seasonal and will have huge uncertainty in power quality. To overcome and to produce power without uncertainty with enhanced power quality, we would like to present a existing concept for a newer area with minimization. A low power, lower size wind turbine can be installed on both sides of the runway to require power. The power generation could provide clean energy and an important parameter called touchdown point of an air craft on the runway (air strip). The LPWT can be installed on both sides of runway to acquire power during aircraft landing and takeoff. Generally on runway, aircrafts movement will be around 400 nautical miles per hour. During the movement very great air velocity will occur on the runway and the same will be enough to drive small micro wind turbines to produce power. This power generated for the runway can also be used in the taxi-way and other purposes. The second concept is the touchdown point-which is the first point for the aircraft to touch the runway during landing.
