    Wind Energy Trainer

    Demonstrate on a tabletop scale the conversion of energy from wind to electricity. The wind power plant generator (turbine)

    can be setup with different blade configurations, and the source of airflow is adjustable. All required circuit modules and

    measuring instruments are included. Use the wind generator as an electrical supply to the

    AE 102 electrolyser, and add the AE

    101

    photovoltaic cells to demonstrate hybrid power plants. A custom formed carrying case is included.

    Experiments:

    Measuring wind force outdoors

    Measuring wind force on the experiment platform

    Power output of the generator with different blade shapes

    Power output of the generator with different numbers of blades (2,3,4)

    Power output of the generator with different blade angles

    Characteristic curve of a generator ( U/I ) at constant speed

    Characteristic curve of a generator ( U/I ) at varying speeds

    Measuring the resistance-and buoyancy rotor at constant wind force

    Power output of the generator at different wind speeds
