Homemade wind turbines are able to provide electricity in your home and also to your business. The cost of constructing the turbine is nothing compared to the total costs of electrical expenditures in the next ten years or so if we turn down the idea of building a wind turbine. Many industries have adapted to this means of sourcing energy because it proves to be cost effective, economical and most of all, environmental friendly.
Building this requires precise engineering. This is because there is a complex system that is involved in this energy-producing machine.
Another aspect that needs attention in order for the turbine to work effectively is the location. It will never work as effectively as at should if placed in the city, or in places where there are a lot of buildings.
As such, there’s no need to actually hire an electrical or mechanical engineer to make it possible. You can make your own homemade wind turbine, provided you take note on the very important rules and prerequisites.
When it comes to homemade wind turbines, wind is the primary ingredient. A wind that travels at least 5 mph to 10 mph can usually generate enough power to convert to electricity.
Now that you’re done with the location, the second step is to understand the parts of a wind mill or a wind turbine. A wind turbine is comprised of three components.
These are the blades, the motor and the tower. The blades must face the wind so that it rotates with the current. The motor which is the heart of the machine is the one that converts the wind power to electricity. The purpose of the tower is to hold everything together.
The electricity converted from wind power is direct current. An inverter is needed to convert that current into electricity. Also, wires are involved so if you have no experience, you should study how these wirings work and where they must be connected. Once built, the next important rule is to make sure that the fan is well fitted and snug against the tower in such a way that it can resist the strong winds.
