Educational Wind Turbine
Description of Educational Wind Turbine
The Educational Wind Turbine unit is for a study of wind turbine characteristics. Educational Wind Turbine consists of an adjustable blade axial flow fan with a speed control, transparent casing test section, a wind turbine, a DC generator with resistance load, a dynamometer, , and measuring instruments. The turbine wheel can accommodate up to 6 blades and blade angle can be adjusted using a special device. The unit can also be used for testing different blade design by students.
Experiments of Educational Wind Turbine
Calculation of wind power. Turbine output VS wind speed. Turbine efficiency. Effect of blade angle. Effect of number of blades.
