Wind Turbine Rotor

Pluggable Rotor Application

The pluggable rotor allows you to install and uninstall the rotor to the turbine body easily. This is a great improvement to the previous version. With this Pluggable Rotor, you can also pre-assemble several rotor assemblies with different sizes of blades for quick changes to the turbine. The changes in the output can then be observed in turn immediately under the same wind condition. The students will understand what parameters of blades are critical in harvesting the wind energy at that particular wind speed.
