Product Details

Savonius Wind Turbine
by PicoTurbine

With this vertical turbine design, you'll be able to explore wind energy. Its simple format will allow you to create a source of free, renewable energy either by just spinning the s-foil wind blades, or by holding it into the wind. Its intuitive incorporation of technology will allow for near-limitless customization and research into the field of green energy. It can run off of any source that can push air strong enough to turn the wind blades, like a fan, a hair dryer, or the wind.

Featuring a strong, yet lightweight injection molded base and frame, the turbine kit also includes plastic s-foil wind blades able to capture the wind from all directions as well as a DIY alternator for producing AC power. Additionally, it also has the capability of being customized with additional coils and magnets (extra coils/magnets sold separately). A built-in LED light helps indicate the generated power, and a digital multimeter(not included) can be used to see how much power is being generated.

The supplied coils are pre-wound to 200 turns, and the magnets are rare earth. Other types of magnets (not included) can be used to change the output of the wind turbine.

Savonius Wind Turbines are ideal for STEM projects for grades 5 thru college.

Assembled Dimensions: 20.4x14.5x14.5cm
