Edison Patent Award. GHT was invented by Alexander M. Gorlov , professor of Northeastern University. The physical principles of the GHT work  are the same as for its main prototype, the Darrieus turbine, and for the family of similar vertical axis wind turbines which includes also Turby wind turbine , aerotecture turbine, Quietrevolution wind turbine , etc.

Twister helical Darrieus wind turbine at Crissy Field, San Francisco in an "urban wind" demonstration project, Developed in the mids by Professor Alexander M. Gorlov of the Northeastern University , the helical rotor has become the popular choice of inventors of new Vertical Axis Wind Turbines.
Nevertheless, the design has been frequently adapted for use in wind energy since the early to mids. One example is Quiet Revolution. The helical rotor design is reputed to reduce or eliminate the torque ripple encountered in traditional two-blade Darrieus or eggbeater turbines. Because of its dramatic aesthetic appeal, the helical or Gorlov rotor has become the preferred wind turbine design by architects when adding architectural features to their buildings or development sites.
Architects seeking LEED platinum are notorious for adding small wind turbines—often helical—as an architectural element or kinetic sculpture.
