Basic Tips to Help You Install Your DIY Vertical Wind Turbine Generator

If you are thinking of making your own vertical wind turbine generator, you should understand that it is not very complicated to do.

I have tried to simplify this process for you as much as possible, with the knowledge I have gained from many years of working with various types of commercial products while serving my clients (I am a consultant for Wind commercials, LLC – one of the largest companies in the industry).

The hardest part of this project, by far, is finding the right program to work with. Most of the products that I have used for my clients have come from the trial and error portion of the project – you are trying to piece together parts from individual manufacturers.

You need a proven product, designed by someone who understands wind energy systems, and is willing to share his or her beloved systems with others.

Once you find that product, the rest of the program will fall into place.

In my experience, there are two parts to the wind energy decommissioningprocess.

First are the parts needed to get the motor started. This is the easy part. There is no doubt about it. Once you figure out how to get a motor started, I believe you can easily take a motor and connect it to a generator in other words, turning a generator.

Once the computer part of the system is connected to the wiring harness, you have a motor, ready to run.

Second, you need to start up the generator. This is the hard part. Once you have it running, you may have to encourage the motor to start putting power into the house.

The systems that I have used, generally let me disconnected from the house wiring (that is connected to the electric panel).

If the system comes with a battery backup, this may not be a good idea, as your battery may be damaged if the generator doesn’t get enough power.

For simplicity sake, I have had the system run off the home made, battery back up.

Since the majority of the energy is coming out of the batteries, the obvious option, is to work with a mechanical device that will make noise, and turn against the wind.

I was lucky enough to found a Dremel, which turned out to be inexpensive. They are used to make all kinds of small tool attachments.

Once the innovator got his hands on the actual motor, again I charged it up for a test run, with a proven panel, by getting a sample of the wind test results.

It was then that we mixed some oil with water, and put it in the reservoir.

We then connected the motor to a volt measuring device that was connected across the other end of the wire, and made a run for the motor. This was the case where one of the wires was floating free, and we needed to get it attached to a board.

We liked the results so much that it was standing by itself, ready to start producing electricity.

That was a bit tough for an electrician to risk making a system that could produce a flow of electricity in the wind.

It took us a while to get that system to operate at 100 RPM. It was a backyard fortunate shot scared out of the control cable.

When you look up the Dremel device, usually any wiring system will have to be redone because of the blades.

Our front yard is not accessible by the wind, so over time, I was concerned about the motor being blown free by the wind. An easy fix by using an infrared shutter was simple enough for us to address the issue.

That is a lot of work for everyday folks.

Once a motor is installed, there is very little maintenance to be performed. The blades may need to be cleaned from time to time.

The blades could also endure a pointy hail blower, if the dust from the shingle is sharp enough to penetrate. The point is to keep the blades clear of debris.

We might put a wind sock on the rotation shaft to deflect potential debris from striking it.

The wind drive unit is installed by connecting power to the rotor on the top of the blades

It works as previously mentioned. The AC current is used to switch DC power to the battery. The battery is then attached to an inverter

This is how a vertical axis wind turbine rotor generates electricity.

Basics fourth group of modular technology specials blades are planned to be used for ourAsian Station boarded wind turbine blades.

judcluding Quang Payton in our wind turbine blades, there are a total of 8 blades in this unit. And these can handle a wind velocity of 7 miles per hour to 14 miles per hour.

In the fifth group of rotor blades, criteria will be discussed. All of these blades will be in the range of 20 to 30 feet in diameter.

This is a major difference from 50 feet!
