DIY Wind Turbine

at 10:05 pm. Filed under DIY Hacks, Electronic Hacks


Our friend Carlos Asmat documented the process of installing a DIY Wind Turbine. The build has been broken down into 3 parts, The Wind Turbine Part 1: General Idea, The Wind Turbine Part 2: Design and Materials and The Wind Turbine Part 3: Building the Generator. As you will see not everything went as planned, I don’t think you would even consider the need to remove a huge swarm of bees as a step in your Wind Turbine installation plans. 🙂

“The rationale for this is that the generator should be easily reproducible by anyone. This also meant making sure the Ecuadorians could find all the materials locally so they could easily remake it, should they want to (and they should!). Finally, we are not experts and do not have access to a super advanced machine shop, so keeping it simple (stupid) was the way to go. In the end, and almost by accident, we decided to use mainly PVC and steel pipes and fittings for the entire construction.”

    The motor looks like a 2 speed fan motor and not necessarily a DC motor as they say in their parts list. Is anybody privy to how they setup the motor to be DC?
