Wind shrouding experiments will be conducted to investigate the influences of two custom-constructed wind augmentation devices: cone-shaped wind guide and a flanged diffuser shroud. A group of Industrial Technology students will develop both diffuser shrouds that will collect and accelerate the incoming wind. The tests will be carried out for three wind velocities (5 mph to 15 mph) in a laboratory setting to compare the influences of two shrouding devices on the power output. A small scale horizontal axis wind turbine will be used with 400 Watt power rating. The study will report the comparative measurements performed on an experimental small-scale wind turbine attached for both shrouding devices.
