Educational Wind Turbine

The unit is for a study of wind turbine characteristics.

The turbine consists of axial flow fan with speed control and flare entrance, a wind turbine, DC generator with resistance load, dynamometer, and measuring instruments. The turbine and blade angle can be adjusted using a special device. The unit can also be used for testing different blade design by students.

TYPICAL EXPERIMENTS
  • Calculation of wind power.
  • Turbine output VS wind speed.
  • Turbine efficiency.
  • Effect of blade angle.
  • Effect of number of blades.
