Hill, California - May 9, 2009.
OEA International, Inc. (OEA) the industry leader in the 3D Electronic
Design Automation tools, today announced a expansion into the growing
renewable energy business with the formation of the OEA International
For the past two years, OEA has been involved in a focused effort on new
technology called the 'Akcasu Turbine'. The new turbine takes advantage
of Dr. O. Ersed Akcasu's expertise in the computer modeling of complex
problems and his passion for aeronautic performance. The result of the
work is a new patent pending invention in which the turbine blades are
constantly rotated to have the optimized attack angle to the energy medium.
In the wind turbine application the structure takes the form of a Vertical
Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT) in which the blades angle of attack is computer
controlled to extract the most energy from the wind as possible. The advantages
are low wind capable, omni-directional, and lower overall cost than
conventional Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines. The target for the Akcasu VAWT
is distributed wind applications initially. The technology is also applicable
to hydro-energy to extract energy for rivers and ocean tides.
OEA International, Inc., Energy Division
International, Inc., Energy Division designs and markets wind and water
turbine technology for the alternative energy market. The products are based
on a new patent pending turbine design. For additional information call
