In this paper, instead of generating electricity by windmills turbine, artificial trees are used in which its leaves will act as horizontal turbine and generate electricity. These leaves are known as Aeroleaves. These leaves are like a blades of the artificial tree (essentially micro-wind turbines), which works at a speed as low as 3 m/s, regardless the direction of the wind. This paper discussed a tree-shaped structure design with a bunch of leaves acting mini-wind turbines. The design of these Aeroleaves is taken savonius type, which is simplest design and can catch the wind from all directions. Advantages of these unusual horizontal wind turbines are their adaptability to various locations. A 6 kW solar panel would take up nearly about 450 square feet of land space, which is not an optimal option who are living in apartments or houses without direct sunlight. But on the other hand, a wind tree’s curved branches could be installed to any rooftop or lesser space (balcony) and even in areas that do not get much wind. Each aeroleaf is connected to a DC generator, and all the generators terminals are connected to power convertor that will check and provide a constant DC voltage even if generated voltage is less or high due to wind speed variations. The terminals of the power convertors are then connected in series which adds up the generated voltage. Wiring of the all the supply runs through the branches of tree and goes to the battery panel at the bottom of tree. As the wind flows and rotates the turbine, electric energy is produced without any noise and got stored in batteries which can be used for various purposes. This paper concludes the new technique of generating electricity which is totally eco-friendly and is reliable. It can be used in last scale, and by some modification in design, it can be more efficient and profitable.
