Harnessing Wind Energy

Abstract:Building a wind turbine from common materials, I examined three hypotheses exploring the relationship between propeller size, wind speed, motor voltage and energy extracted from the wind. This experiment shows how simple wind energy use is, how critical “clean” energy is, and explores the practical concerns of turbine design.
