Homemade Wind Turbine Generator VAWT Vertical




What do you think about this video?

Paul Curtis: I'm in AZ, so a similar climate by the looks of it and my only concern is the OSB. I'v head too many issues with that material breaking down in the sun. I've been thinking about how to stabilize it and one thought is carbon fiber/fiberglass resin? I'm currently looking at property next to a mountain and it has a pretty reliable wind source...

Dan Ahlm: It would be nice to see a closeup of the wing design. Many of these use pipes cut in half, does yours actually have a wing shape design, if so how do you position the wings?

ANew Vertical Wind Turbines: And for a professional made VAWT better visit our channel :). 

thepoultrypeople: beautifully made by the looks of it, thank you for sharing

Dan Ahlm: You should sell plans on how to build this. When you do let me know I'll buy them.

Dog Brokedog: Wind turbines RUN 24/7/365 SOLAR 6 to 9 hour's max / 24 hours

Snarky FourSeven: Several years ago I caught a blurb about a trial VAWT to be inserted inside those huge power cable towers that criss cross the country. Any one heard of it or any recent uptake?

seoulkidd1: Can you make a video on how you made it

sandertel: Hi Mike, I must thak you from doing this great work. I ike the design a lot and I think some of the people are down right rude making remarks as if they stept out of a lawyers office...SHAME ON THEM !!! I am on holiday now in a rented RV experiencing 1st hand what power hungry feels like so very soon I will be cracking at one of these myself. Only one thing: I would like to attempt a self wound alternator (serpentine or coils) but I am unsure what to go for. What would work ? Regards, Sander

laithnour: off of (what kind of englick is that?)

digitheadman: Very nice, I like it and would like to make one for my house in Upstate NY. Please send me the link to the plans you have posted so that I may look them over and send you any more questions I know I will have. Thanks

Minang Song HD: Your Video Is Very Useful Sharing Homemade Vertical Wind Turbine mounted behind my wall and isn't visible from the street.

copterrichie: May I see the plans for this design? This is just what I would like to build.

Commie John: You should develop a Halbach Array for a frictionless bearing to increase efficiency.

Rasmus Martinez: Que efecto tiene en watts?

Hemon Dey: ie. a boost/buck converter system that regulates the voltage output of the turbine and varies the current. A smart controller might also be able to take a anemometer signal input and turn the generator into a motor to start the turbine turning?? in light winds so that you won't need a drag component to your wing? ... just an idea.

Derrick Bane: What a great idea!

imikewillrockyou: @joeinbend I doubt doubling the stators would be of much benefit and might actually increase turbulence. I would stick with the eight.

dra6o0n: Hmm people made wind turbines attached to the ground, floating helium turbines in the sky, even mini turbines that can be placed anywhere... Now here's a question, is there a wind turbine that hangs off of a high area, and has weight and spins too? It'd be a upside down vertical wind turbine in a sense, with the slack of the cable holding it down like a chandler.

johni Dough: I am looking to do something like this, can you tell me what sort of alternator you purchased to use on this?

CapnCrunch Roxx: Yup! Here's something I've always wondered... Next time you're driving down the road, take notice of how many telephone/power line poles and cell phone towers you pass along the way. Now imagine every one of those poles with a small inexpensive VAWT like this one sitting atop them (and atop that a small 2'x2' solar panel). All of those units working in unison would add up to quite a lot of power -- all of them feeding the grid. (Nice VAWT imikewillrockyou)

TheStavros1001: How much power does it produce?

doug daniels: very cool,,,LATER FROM THE WEST COAST...

Petros Goltsis: It looks really neat! As you mentioned the cost of production vs. energy return is essential. So that leads me to the question, how much would you estimate that it would cost so manufacture one of these? rougly speaking....

TV 2 FILM: I Really Like The Video From Your Homemade Vertical Wind Turbine mounted behind my wall and isn't visible from the street.

Charles DuMond: Great video. I work for a charity in Africa that is trying to get off the grid. It's an orphanage, and I am looking into wind power for electricity and water pumps. Thanks for the information - very helpful!

DreidMusicalX: Now how do you get this to power something or you're home? I can never find full plans to what I need to use for power to my 5th wheel.

Charles DuMond: Great video. Have you ever tried hooking up a water pump?

DrASADFAROOQUI: Nice piece of work . I live in a country where power shortage is a national issue . loadshedding of 6-16 hours a day in summer is a norm . Interested to make wind power for my home use . power required is about 10KW. I live near a beach maybe good for windmills. Kindly provide me with your DIY-wind turbine details .

Mike D: what is the P.M.A.alternator you used for this project ? I was going to put a 14 magnet alternator but the drag can be strong so I was told that a 7 magnet alternator would be better.

jeffsandychelsea: You're right. I did come off as extremely arrogant and rude. I do apologize for that, Mike.

stephenkurti: The outer fixed vanes do they have any other function apart from being part of the frame structure, like reducing wind turbulance before it hits the blades?

Joshua Matheny: very nice work, it is a clean design.

Скайтек Скайтек: бла-бла-бла... сколько Ватт???

V.C.: @imikewillrockyou looking forward :D

babyoftheuniverse: That's amazing. I really enjoyed this video. Do you sell your ideas and layouts? This looks very expensive with a high budget. Let me know if you sell layouts, thanks!

MagalhaesOtacilio: Tks dear friend, Congratulations for your idea looks very nice!

imikewillrockyou: @platinum243125 Generally HAWTs are slightly more efficient than VWATs if you measure by surface area covered. But that is moot. The numbers you want to see is the cost of production vs. energy return. I believe that large VWATs can be built on a commercial scale using common construction materials, unlike large HAWT turbines which are very expensive. In other words an large VWAT design could built, on site, by construction workers using common materials for fraction of the cost per watt..

GlobalTubeTruth: Wow!! I'm very surprised, to say the very least. Not that it should be such a big deal to apologize when you're wrong, or come off rude. It's just that so few people ever do it, or even acknowledge, or admit it on any level, much less put it into writing. That is respectable, and I applaud your honesty. The apology is Mike's to accept, but I think you took a step in the right direction. I was very surprised to read his comment, which he so unselfishly was willing to share his idea with everyone.

Dong Dong Wee: where did u get the alternator?

Stiainín Beglan: This is amazing. Giving me so many ideas. Question though: could a vehicle alternator be used in something like this, or would one have to find or make some other kind of generator?

eetrapnoel: So what are some thoughts on replacing the blades shown with more defined airfoils like NACA if keeping the same construction dimensions? (number of blades, cord size, etc.)

Sidney Boudro: I look at these and wonder if the stators could be made to vary and close when the wind gets dangerously high? Would that be an advantage or a detriment ( would it be to complex ). We have hurricanes down here.

hozanadrian: ok!

juan davis: Build Your Own Wind Turbine Over 1 Hour of "Step-By-Step Videos" showing you the exact process ABOUTSOLARCELLS.COMXA.COM

dra6o0n: Basically in shape of a ball, with cut holes to match a spiral shape, to let wind pass through it. The only issue is that without sufficient weight, the wind could swing the ball around, and if it's metal, expect it to become a wrecking ball lol. Another idea that pops up is a pendulum based spinning wind turbine. A pendulum may swing back and forth from the earth's own gravitational fields, IF you have a extremely long line. And at the same time it can spin at the contact point of the ball.

kamilino1: good!!!!very good!!!

Stiainín Beglan: I agree. I have never understood why they need to build whole farms using horizontal turbines. It makes no sense. Even in Science class when I was taught that wind power isn't wholly a viable solution because lots of places don't get enough wind to turn these horizontal turbines. I though, "Oh, come on. There has to be a way around that. Nowhere is completely void of wind." Put these and solar on pre-existing poles, like you said, and viola: The world's energy crisis suddenly meets its match.

imikewillrockyou: @wtf0804 It's a permanent magnet alternator or PMA. It's basically a regular car alternator rebuilt with permanent magnets. That's likely the best for this set-up. However, you can get regular DC motors that will work also, I got one on ebay for $20.

EMT: Thanks! They sometimes skip corners and take the easy way. If they ever did that, I suggest you consult with a paralegal or lawyer. This way they won't be able to cheat you.
