Wi nd Turb i ne dynami cs AE 1 005V
A versatile, compact apparatus for teaching the fundamentals of kinetic wind energy conversion into electrical power. Flexibility is at the core, it has a castor-mounted frame for mobility and functionality and allows students to 3D-print their own blades for advanced experimentation.
• 70 W turbine with calculated torque and power output • Motorised blade pitch control • Yaw control • Integrated safety guards with solenoid interlock • Smart shutdown: automatic over speed and over current shutdown • Uninterrupted Ø400 mm tunnel with a Ø300 mm turbine • Viewing from both sides of the tunnel for groups L earn i ng Outcomes : Comprehensive demonstration and investigation into the foundations of wind turbine energy conversion including: • The relationship between turbine speed and wind velocity (TSR) • Effect of blade pitch on turbine performance • Effect of yaw angle on turbine performance • Blade performance characteristics of different profiled blades • Blade design theory
