so i am taking that chllange to create my own style of Savonius wind generator.
in this Instructable i will include the steps that will achieve my Faroun Savonius Wind Mill.
the size over all will be approx 6 feet high and 2.5 feet wide
split into 3 main steps and each main step will split into mini steps.
Note:: that the sound that you hear in the movie is the leaf blower that is producing air to turn the wind turbine.
3 main steps are:
-Turbine assembly =TA
-Cage assembly =CA
*top, bottom and sides frame
*mount on a fixed roof or tower
-generator and battery assembly =GBA
*Rectifiers and battery connection
sure things may change a bit along the way but you will be the first to know.
bellow is the semi-final product for Faroun Savonius
so lets start.
Step 1: Turbine Assembly / Blades
in my Project i decided to use Aluminum for Material but u can use steel, Puck Board, or even a simple 5gal pale cut into 2 or 45gal drum cut into 2, so many options you have for the blades.
the size for my blade is 12.5 width, 6.25 depth, .125"thick, 20" circumference and 18" high.
i did not cut or roll the blades i bought them that way, yes i am lazy..lol... i was going to do it with 5gal pale cut into 2 but i figured i want to spend a bit of money just to see the max i can get.
so i have 9 blades, 3 in each section. each blade takes a third of the disc area. so each 3 blades sandwiched between 2 discs (discs are my step2).
