Mini Wind Turbine Generator science project
0:04 pause and check below the name you can see the name of the website he has bought it from haha
@ashtymen Hey man it takes kids like that to make a difference for idiots like you. One day you might be paying this boy for the use of his power. How old are you? you sound like your 2 or 3 years old, grow up. Makes me mad to see people like you bash kids for trying to make something of their lives besides wasting it away. Thumbs up from me to your son smclane6. Great job and keep it up.
@ashtymen dont get jealous because your to stupid (and lazy) to make your own.
How many volts could it generate?
Brilliant, 5th grade? Thats like 10 or something ye? Im seriously impressed with that.
It’s a simple build (I’m 15), but for him to build it in fifth grade?! Major kudos. I had no interest in science in fifth grade!
@ashtymen i agree its an erector set project thats all nothing special
That is pretty cool… I think I will try to build it.
cool project, any plans to build another?
.. i liked it…
wow,and i’m need now that generator i’m gonna make that.
i cant believe how rude and how big of a jackass people can be……tell your son good job
@ashtymen that was a dick move
@tjinga2u1 yes they have the same principles but dont quote me on this, but i think the generator creates more power. it just seems logical
I have some desert land and it’s right below the mountains, I was just thinking how something like this could be used to keep flies and mosquitoes away! Just a thought! Keep up the creations, And thanks for sharing.
how much did this cost and where did you get the parts
@ashtymen My son made it Jackass! %th grade science project. It’s a model of a wind generator. He use an erector set, DC motor, pvc, and other recycled parts. Too bad you are too ignorant to build something like that!
that junk you didn’t make it because its a toy
@tjinga2u1 I just made my own setup and its running. Thanks
@tjinga2u1 I just made my own setup and it works
@pennyandian Forgot to mention the tower – It was quite an undertaking and responsible for the bulk of the expense associated with the Turbine. However, I am glad that I opted for the extra height. Besides looking really cool at Christmas when adorned with lights, it really makes a difference in the power output of the Turbine and often makes the difference between generating power or not on calmer days.
@pennyandian The control system consists of a PLC that I programmed to monitor the turbine rotation speed, wind speed, power output, etc., in tandem with a Beckwith 3410-A to monitor the grid status and power quality. I now have a touch panel that pulls data from the PLC, logs it, allows for remote operation (even over the Internet) and email status messages. Works very well and uses all off of the shelf components.
@ThePowerExcess See above. A Beckwith 3410-A is used to monitor the status of the grid and the output of the turbine. Anything abnormal opens the circuit and shuts the Turbine down.
@turtlemann14 Nearly lost the finger with a planer that I used to cut the profile into the blades. As for the power company, I had to inform them, install a grid intertie monitor (Beckwith 3410-A) to monitor over/under voltage and frequency. I the event of a grid failure or abnormality, the beckwith opens the circuit to the turbine – shutting it down.
@turtlemann14 This is called islanding. I think that his electronics should take care of that. In Greece that’s how it works. Your electronics have to be able to shut down as soon as they see that the grid is off. There is a time limit (a few ns i think).
@tguidic Any infromation on how you control your voltage would be very appreciated.
how did you nearly amputate your finger?
did you have to inform the power company that you are generating so that if they were to shut down the power for service a guy doesn’t get zapped?
Well done – did you do all the electronics and software yourself?
I’m also impressed with the tower!
What’s the motor/generator you used called? Where did it come from? Did you need to build a 20′ diameter blade set to turn it or did you do that for another reason?
breezy5.5 design?? nice work
By interface phases, are you referring to the control system? If you are referring to the control system, I do have the details and am constanly tweaking the programming. It can be readily adapted to both 50 and 60 Hz systems and would also work just as well on Micro hydro installations.
Do you have details of your construction and interface phases?
great video looks like you have a very nice setup.keep us updated
