Wind Turbine


This renewable energy project demonstrates the generation of electricity from wind power, sufficient to light an LED. It involves mechanical assembly and electrical wiring, and provides scope for experimentation to demonstrate how efficiency can be gained or lost by altering blade pitch and shape. It can also operate as a fan.·

This is a topical project, ideal for introducing further exploration of other methods of electricity generation, including environmental issues
