At present, I am looking for air turbines that will be rotated with high speed air flow. It need to be smaller in diameter but should withstand high speed flow (>200 m/s). Before searching net for suitable manufacturers, I want to discuss this with people as i know that there experts here who can give me more insight in this matter.

That's 720 km/hr, 447mph, or 389 knots. Good luck.

A F5 Tornado is 119 -143 m/s ... 200 m/s would be the finger of God. If you want to play God ... your on your own.

That's why I am not looking for market available wind turbines because I know that they are simply unable to withstand that velocity. I am looking for something that will more similar to a gas turbine.

Then I suggest you contact someone who builds them.

It would not be cost effective to design and build a wind turbine that would spin and hold together at that velocity. That is why current wind turbines lock down and wait it out if the wind velocity gets too high.

The big wind turbines that dot the landscape require the level of engineering and manufacturing used in Aerospace. What your asking for would require the the level of engineering and manufacturing used in Astrospace. You might find some gung ho NASA subcontractor that thinks they can do it .... hope you have super deep pockets.

What I am looking for is NOT exactly a gas turbine but rather something in between a wind turbine and a gas turbine. Gas turbines can with much higher pressure/velocity and temperature while wind turbines are made for withstanding modest (in comparison to gas turbines) air velocity.
My main motto is to find out whether what I am looking for can be found off the shelf or not. I seems that there is no readymade solution.

There are no ready made solutions because building a wind turbine to withstand a F5 Tornado is not a solution. One could install or replace a lot of wind turbines for the cost of building one that would withstand a F5 Tornado.

Again, I want to say that what I am looking for isn't a wind turbine. Kindly read what I have written in Post 7 before making comments.

Then why are you even asking on this site? I think you're a troll.

So you want an "air turbine" that will withstand >200m/s (Post 1). Then you say you want something "more similar to a gas turbine" (post 4) and then you say what you want is "NOT exactly a gas turbine"(post 7).

It would help if you were A: consistent in your requests and B: a bit more informative in what you hope to do with it. Till then I have to assume you are just another (deleted) trying to stir up (deleted)....
