Abstract : A system for generating electrical power comprising a stator in combination with an air driven turbine type rotor of annular shape and supported for rotation on an outer surface of the unit to which power is to be supplied. Aerodynamically responsive fins on the annulus ring when exposed to the air flow, rotate the annulus. Magnets in the annulus are separated from stationary stator coils embedded in the unit to generate alternating current. (Author)
