The complexity of making a wind turbine a can make it difficult to know where to start. This book addresses many aspects of the turbine with practical examples. You’ll follow specific design instructions for turbine construction, supported by suggestions and background science to go in new directions. Assembly diagrams are used throughout, made with the Studio utility from bricklink.com. Parts are identified in the assembly diagram, as well as in parts lists in the Appendix.
- Build a turbine from scratch
- Use LEGO to learn aspects of electrical engineering, such as loading turbine output and impedance matching
- Connect a generator to do useful things such as charging a battery or powering LEDs
See how generators, gear systems, aerodynamic blades, lab and outdoor testing, and power output are used.
