Make a Small Wind Turbine from Scratch!
This is an excellent opportunity for participants to learn a variety of skills. The turbines we build are ideal for those who are interested in building their own wind power systems from scratch for fun, to save money, or for generating power in the developing world. Some time will be spent each day in lecture learning about electricity, homebrew wind turbines, wind energy, wind turbine design, towers, wind site assessment, and wind systems.
Who should attend? Homeowners, farmers, engineers, students, and educators interested in:
>Building their own wind turbines
>Working in the wind energy field
>Learning about wind turbine design and construction
In this six-day hands-on workshop, participants will learn how to make a relatively quiet and durable wind turbine from scratch. You will develop knowledge and skills in basic electricity, woodworking, metalworking, resin casting, and a variety of other skills. During this workshop, attendees will complete at least one 12’ diameter wind turbine and work towards the completion of an additional turbine if time permits. These turbines are designed for battery-charging systems. The design is similar to and inspired by the work of, Hugh Piggott. Attendees will fabricate the 3-phase axial flux alternators, wooden blades, and the metal frame for the turbines from scratch.
Early-Bird and Local Discounts are available, details on the website.
