Question by crystelle: what are the materials and procedure in making a very simple and small wind turbine without a generator?
i can’t find the right words to ask but what i want is to know the parts and uses of a small wind turbine that can light a light bulb and that it depends on the wind not the generator. i want to make a small wind turbine that is handy and the parts are very affordable..it’s ok if it only produce a little amount of electricity…pls suggest asap..tnx in advance!!

Don’t bother. The bigger the wind turbine the higher the energy returned on energy invested ratio becomes. (in the same location).
You are definately wasting your time on a small wind turbine, you will not be able to power a lightbulb in the strongest of winds.
The way a wind turbine makes it’s energy is by spinning something which makes an alternating current, I have no idea how a direct current could be made by something spinning such as the wind turbine.
