The Environment Friendly Home-built Wind Turbine

The Global warming is becoming worse and worse everyday and we all have the responsibility to prevent it from getting worst! Many scientists have undergoing numerous types of research to experiment and invent the best eco-green energy generating methods. According to the survey, the wind energy is one of the most eco-friendly and clean energy after the solar energy. The only major drawback of this wind energy is it doesn’t generate any electricity, if the wind stopped blowing to the wind turbine! Well, you must think that you’ll need many components for building this wind turbine. Nah, you can start the project with a generator, three blades, a mounting, a tower, some batteries and an electronic control system. If you’re not familiar with the generator, then you should use the ready made surplus permanent magnet DC motors as generator than build your own generators! Or, if you have a better choice with generator, then you can go for it. Remember, a great generator is supposed to have high DC voltage, low rpms and high current! Let’s take an example, a motor rated for 360 rpm at 30 volts will produce at least 12+V compare with the motor rated at 7200rpmā€¦

Bizzare Intermittent Wind Powered Generator

As the global fuel price keeps rising like a rocket, it is always a pleasure to find some alternative power supply. The wind energy can be considered as one of the clean, eco-friendly and free energy. The main problem is natural wind did not always blow at the same speed and this will gradually affected the efficiency by using wind powered generator. Winds normally blows at intermittent condition, where sometimes the speed is high or low, also sometimes it will eventually changed the direction as well. For overcome this matter, we can create an Intermittent Wind Powered Generator which it can effectively contribute energy even with intermittent wind. The working diagrams of intermittent wind powered generator:
