This instructable is a step by step guide,
showing you how you could make your own windmill.
The following data is collected with this setup.
· Temperature (in °C)
· Brightness (in %)
· Voltage (in V)
MATERIALS (more information in BOM)
· Windturbine generator
· Light sensor
· Raspberry pi 3
· 2,2k-OHM Resistor
· 1k-OHM Resistor
· 220-OHM Resistors
· Female - Male wires
· Male - Male wires
Step 1: Creating a Fritzing Schema
Programming the INA219 is not easy if you want to do it yourself, so I highly recommend using a library: INA219
Step 2: Making the Database
By looking at the image above, you should be able to create your own database by which you can collect data from the sensors.
I hosted this database on my Rasberry pi using MariaDB.
Step 3: Making the Test Setup
I made this setup to see how the sensors work and to test if they al work appropriately.
Step 4: Making a Responive Website
In order to see the collected data, I made a site that shows live data from the sensors and a button to make a light turn on or off.
Step 5: Finishing Off !
Once you have finished all the steps succesfully,
you can start the final step, which is putting all components in a homemade case.
