a study has been done and the PVC pipe design/angle is the most aerodynamic for wind generation
several images showing ideas on hopefully very sturdy and weather proof ideas
I still don't believe this is correct. but at 5 volts , 20 amps = 100 watts.I just don't believe it's putting out that many watts
don't know. it pegged out my 10 amp meter
Thanks and good luck with your build.in the last few weeks we have been hit by some very high winds. some ranging from 48-60 mph. both wind generators have held up. can't say as much for the metal pipe that was used to join to pieces of conduit.
in USA terms they both mean the same thing
cool and thanks!!
sorry to hear that!!I haven't had any trouble getting mine on. think maybe a set screw isn't backed out far enough. it it's not that. there must be a defect.hope you get it solved/fixed!!
Thanks!!not sure but the original design is going on about 3 to 4 years now.it's been through lots of high winds and severe thunderstorms

hey and cool..I'm just North of Georgetown. Those small motors put out plenty of DC voltage but very low amperage. I guess it equals a trickle charge, if that.. ?
