I have been thinking to make wind turbine (a large horizontal axis one) since I first published a small wind turbine video on youtube and a blog post here a few years back. That video went viral. Then I decided to make one large functional wind turbine. The former didn’t give me even 1.5 volts. I know building a medium sized wind turbine will take a lot of time to complete. But, It didn’t, I’ve Just finished a medium sized wind turbine with only 5 days, 2 hours per day after my regular work. By the way, Here I am going to give you an overview of my experience in making this wind turbine Project.

Step 1: Propeller Making
- Take 8 inch, 4mm PVC Pipe
- Cut it into blade shape 1:2:30 Ratio as shown in the figure
- Smoothen the edges.
- Take a 3 Inch washer and weld GI Pieces on It.
- Screw PVC blades On it.
Step 2: Turbine Base Making
The tail will help the propeller to face the wind. As a result, we will get maximum output. We can cut aluminum sheet very easily to any shape. Cut it to a proper shape.
- Take a Johnson wheel and remove the wheel
- Weld it to one side of a 1" square GI Pipe (1.5m)
- Connect bearings in a Piece of GI pipe and Place it on the johnson wheel.
- Weld a hose clip on it to fix dynamo.
Step 3: Assembling Components
Make wind turbine at your Home. Make wind turbine charger. This mini wind turbine is very easy to make and can be used to recharge smartphone, battery etc. Make this mini wind turbine for kids. Mini wind turbine design for the school project.
