    Measuring the current from a micro generator affects its output?

    I am performing an experiment where I have built a scale model of a wind turbine, and am measuring the current it can produce with a micro generator. I am using a standard multi meter and the micro generator is DC. I do not know much about the topic, but whenever I start measuring the current...

    Choosing a wind turbine generator

    I'm doing a school project in which I'm building a wind turbine. The next step for me is to choose a generator but I'm not completely sure what is right for me. I expect to come up to 300 rpm as an average and need the required voltage to for a car battery, which is around 14.4 volt. My...

    What generator/DC motor do I need for my wind turbine

    I am making a small wind turbine for my A-level RMT and wondering what kind of generator I need to charge a 12volt battery. The turbine is a vertical axis savonius turbine that will probably be about a meter high and half a meter wide. I know I can use permanent magnet dc motors and someone...

    Recharging a battery when Lightbulb and TV are in parallel

    Homework Statement In a household, the wife reads a book that uses a light bulb that has a resistance of 100Ω and is connected to a 100 V line while the husband watches a TV that draws 100 W of power. They do these actives for 200 mins. Power comes from a wind generator that charges batteries...

    Vertical Wind Tunnels using green technology

    I wish to create a state-of-the-art vertical wind tunnel for indoor skydiving. By state-of-the-art I mean using green technology to create the power necessary to push air, and I would like to reclaim as much energy I can from the movement of air, drive shafts, and anything else I have not...

    Wind turbines with many small generators

    Hello, This is not a homework question. I'm not a student. In fact I'm retired. The other day, I was passing by a wind turbine. I thought "wouldn't it be better to have hundreds of small generators with small wings connected together instead of one huge generator with huge wings?" But I did...

    Quick question about DC Motors

    Hi, I'm doing research for my science project. I chose Wind energy and I need to learn a few things about DC Motors, Who is a good manufacturer for 6-9V .5 amps DC motor/generators? What happens if the generator goes over the recommended RPMs? How do you keep the RPMs between the minimum...

    Where in the world can i purchase a A ram air turbine Rat_

    where in the world can i purchase a A ram air turbine Rat.._ i want to mount it on the roof of my rv trailer build. and use it as a wind turbine generator as i drive down the road, to recharge my batteries.. i heard you really cant use a regular wind turbine or can you..?? or will it just shut...
