Wind Energy Science Kit – product overview
There are three types of profiled blades included in the Wind Energy kit. After you obtain the maximum output power with a particular blade type, you may replace with another type of profiled blade and evaluate it’s performance in comparison.
With the included LED Module you can demonstrate the output power created by the Wind Kit and use this power to illuminate the LED lights on the Module. This LED Module is intended as a basic demonstration device. To perform much more detailed experiments and explore the full educational value of your Wind Kit we recommend purchasing the Horizon Renewable Energy Monitor (FCJJ-24). Use the device to measure how much voltage is being produced under your experimental conditions, and in combination with Horizon’s electrolyzers you can perform a multitude of experiments.
Arrange multiple Wind Kit turbines in series and parallel configurations in order to study the voltage, current, and power generated. Design a simulation of a commercial wind farm in model scale and learn the potential of wind power as a mass energy source.
