A method of generating power from wind comprising providing a turbine in an airstream with the turbine having a rotor with a plurality of blades and a stator with a plurality of blades upstream of the rotor. A portion of the ambient airstream is increased in velocity and reduced in pressure by passing such portion of the ambient airstream through the stator to provide an incoming airstream. The incoming airstream is passed through the rotor to drive the rotor and to provide an exiting airstream. The exiting airstream is conducted through a duct to increase the pressure and decrease the velocity of the exiting airstream, and subsequently the exiting airstream is discharged from the duct to the atmosphere.

Title
Wind motor rotor having substantially constant pressure and relative velocity for airflow therethrough
