Overview

 

 

PicoTurbine's Savonius (Verical Access) Model Wind Turbine kit is a fully functioning miniature vertical windmill. At wind speeds of 12 mph it produces approximately 3.0V/50mA plus. The top and based are built from high quality craft wood and coated with premium enamel to help protect it from the elements. The kit comes with sets of recycled plastic s-foils and blades, 4 ceramic grade-five magnets, pre-wound 4 (220)-turn copper coils. This kit walks users through every aspect of capturing and converting wind power into electricity.

Users learn how recycled plastic S-foil wind blades (unlike horizontal wind blades) capture energy from any direction. They build step by step an alternator that uses magnetic induction to produce electrical current. The rotor distance is adjustable to the coil array allowing users to witness magnetic strength principles. The wind turbine produces alternating current that can be displayed when connected to the bi-color LED. This special LED emits alternating red and green light when voltage switches from positive to negative.

This product is ideal for science fair projects, classroom demonstrations, and at home teaching. PicoTurbine sells additional coils and magnets upon request, making the kit highly customizable. While this kit can be built and operated by children 10 and up, however it teaches scientific principles that may require higher education. This product was designed to work alongside high school to undergraduate science classes studying alternative energy, magnetic induction, alternating current, and aerodynamic principles.

Product Highlights:

  • Now comes with recycled blades and s-foils for increased durability
  • Fully functional Savonius wind turbine producing approximately 3.0V/50mA at wind speeds of 12 mph
  • Completely hands on experience teaching every fundamental aspect of how electricity is harnessed from wind power 
  • Standardized parts allowing for windmill customization 
  • Designed to be used by children 10 plus, but mastered by college level students
