Grades 5-12. For your STEM curriculum.
Use angular velocity,drag force, and other physics concepts to design and build an efficient wind turbine. This miniature real, working wind turbine (wind power generator) is designed for students to evaluate the pitch (angle setting) of the profiled blades. Up to 12 profile blades can be installed for evaluation. Learn how the blade pitch and number of blades affect the power output of the wind turbine. Experimentation also teaches about stalling or reduction of the wind turbine’s rotational speed to protect itself under strong wind conditions. Includes three different types of profiled blades, one type of polypropylene sheet blades, a three-phase AC alternator, LED voltmeter/music maker module, printed instructions, and a Windows® CD-ROM containing an educational textbook, experiment manual, flash animations, technical support, and assembly guides. One-year warranty.
