It is well known to aeronautical engineers that oscillating wings may extract power from an air stream. The bending and torsion flexure of airplane wings exposed to an air flow may extract sufficient energy to result in structural damage or even catastrophic failure. Fortunately, this phenomenon can also be used to extract energy from a wind or water stream and convert it into electric power.
