The vertical vs horizontal vs hydro wind turbine science experiments kit level 1 is the most comprehensive of all our energy
educational offerings. It combines all our Turbines: The Horizontal Turbine, Hydro Turbine, and Vertical Turbine.
The Vertical vs Horizontal vs Hyrdo Wind Turbine Science Experiments Kit Package Includes
Profiled blades are included with this turbine to generate high power. Sheet Blades are also included for evaluating the blade parameters at different wind speeds. The vane on the turbine aligns the turbine automatically to the direction of wind.
Science Fair Project Ideas for the Vertical vs Horizontal vs Hyrdo Wind Turbine Science Experiments Kit
- Modify the parameters (blades and vane) of one of the turbines to see how the output changes at different wind speed conditions.
- Use each turbine independently of each other. Measure the electrical output with the multimeter for each. Which windmill produces more electrical energy?
- You can use any suitable sheet material to make your own blades for evaluation.
A small horizontal-axis wind turbine (HAWT) has the main rotor shaft and electrical generator at the top of the tower and is pointed into the wind by a wind vane.
Advantage: The tall tower base allows access to stronger wind in sites with wind shear. Wind shear, sometimes referred to as windshear or wind gradient, is a difference in wind speed and direction over a relatively short distance in the atmosphere.
A vertical-axis wind turbine (or VAWT) has the main rotor shaft arranged vertically.
One key advantage of this arrangement is that the turbine does not need to be pointed into the wind to be effective. This is an advantage on sites where the wind direction is highly variable.
The question for you is “Which wind turbine is best for where you live?”
