RE310 EDUCATIONAL WIND TURBINE
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

The unit is for a study of wind turbine characteristics.

It consists of an adjustable blade axial flow fan with a speed control, transparent casing test section, a wind turbine, a DC generator with resistance load, a dynamometer, , and measuring instruments. The turbine wheel can accommodate up to 6 blades and blade angle can be adjusted using a special device. The unit can also be used for testing different blade design by students.

TYPICAL EXPERIMENTS
  • Calculation of wind power.
  • Turbine output VS wind speed.
  • Turbine efficiency.
  • Effect of blade angle.
  • Effect of number of blades.
