Wind Turbine Assembly

Introduction: Wind Turbine Assembly

We are building a wind turbine to run the scoreboard on upper field. This will help produce electricity for the scoreboard in efficient and environmentally friendly way. The materials we used are listed above.

This project is an ALEKO WGV 45W wind turbine from Amazon.

The instructions that come with the turbine are pretty terrible. We are also using some different electronics for the Charge Controller which will be added in another project.

Step 1: Assembling the Base

Pull the wire, that is connected to the generator, through the base. Bolt the generator to the base.

Step 2: Putting Together the First Bladeholder

Slide the following objects in this order over the generator: washer--> the blade with the smaller hole--> washer --> lock washer --> nut.

Step 3: Sanding and Putting Together the Second Bladeholder

Sand the slits of the blade holder until the blades can fit through. Put washer on the generator along with the second blade holder. Then slide all the blades through the slits.

Step 4: Finishing the Turbine

Put washer, lock washer, nut, and cotter pin on top of the blade holder.

    Very nicely done. Was this turbine from a kit?

    It is, I just added a link to the Amazon item. It is a school project by my students.
