Windmill Blades
Division:Health Sciences / None
City:Toronto, ON
School:Danforth Collegiate & Technical Inst.
Abstract:The rotational speeds of windmill blades of varying width, pitch, and number running different sized generators at different wind speeds were measured. Results showed that wider blades are more effective; larger generators are more effective; number of blades does not affect performance; and that while lower pitches spin faster with low loads, higher pitches are more consistent under all loads and wind conditions.
