WindPitch is a powerful mini wind turbine (wind power generator) designed for students to evaluate the Blade pitch (setting angle) and Sheet Blade Parameters. Up to 12 Profile Blades can be installed for evaluation.
You can learn how the blade pitch affects the power output of the wind turbine to maximize the output power or stalls (reduces the rotation speed of) the wind turbine to protect itself under strong winds.
The special 3 Phase AC Alternator used in the turbine is similar to the one used in real commercial wind turbine.
3 types of Special Profile Blade are used on WP-2. The pitch of all the profile blades on the nacelle are adjusted at the same time. The pitch angle can be adjusted from 0 to 55 degree. Molded Profile Blades are much powerful and are not user modifiable.
Vane is made of Polypropylene sheet. The vane on the turbine aligns the turbine automatically to the direction of wind.
The metal alloy base is heavy and base extenders are employed to withstand the higher trust encountered” under the strong wind so that the WindPitch will not “walk
