An Australian invention could make cheap micro-generation via wind power far easier.

Innovative Wind Turbine From Australia

Graeme Attey has designed a modular wind turbine small enough for the roof of house, and with fully enclosed blades. It seems that without large blades, more of these could fit onto a particular surface. The West Australian Government is funding some trials in the hope that he can get an efficient model working. If it's developed into a consumer product, which is the plan for later next year, then they also plan to offer rebates to residents who install the device. The article is rather devoid of details, but the device looks quite attractive in an industrial way, and I would be quite happy about having a spine of these along the apex of my roof.

Clarian Power: SmartBox Plug-In Wind Power. The SmartBox Wind Turbine is a 48-inch tall vertical-axis wind turbine (VAWT) that plugs directly into an existing electrical outlet and automatically generates power whenever the wind is blowing.

Clarian Power: SmartBox Plug-In Wind Power

The SmartBox Wind Turbine can be mounted directly to the side of a home, on a rooftop or wind tower, or even existing street lights. And, it can generate up to 40 kWh per month in moderate winds enough to light an average home using energy efficient light bulbs. Expected to cost under $800, the SmartBox Wind Turbine is a cost-effective option for homeowners and small business owners looking to harness wind power for the first time. Build this open source DIY wind turbine for $30. Getting started with home wind energy projects can set you back a pretty penny if you buy a finished product, but if you're a little bit handy and don't mind scrounging for materials and getting creative in the garage or backyard, you can try your hand at building one of these DIY wind turbines for about $30 in materials.

After all, it is #iheartrenewables week! We've previously covered Daniel Connell's open source concentrated solar collector plans, but now he's back with another great DIY renewable energy project, a vertical axis wind turbine based on the Lenz2 lift+drag design. Connell's design calls for using aluminum lithographic offset printing plates to catch the wind, which he says can be obtained cheaply (or possibly even free) from an offset printing company, and a variety of hardware and a bicycle wheel.

"The turbine uses the ~40% mechanically efficient Lenz2 lift+drag design. The Geometry of Gears - Theory Of Machines - Engineering Reference with Worked Examples. The geometry of both Cycloid and Involute gears.

An analysis of the motion between two teeth and the calculation of the path of contact. Introduction. Motors/Drives content from Machine Design. The easiest way to design a linear-motion system is to add components one by one.

Then, step-by-step calculations relate input to power dissipated moving a load in a specific amount of time. Linear systems drive everything from inexpensive seat movers in passenger vehicles to precision laser cutters and CNC machines. All move loads through a linear distance in a specific amount of time. The second and third steps of the approach outlined here are to choose the motor type and size.

Rotor (Motor Parts) Powerharvester Receivers. Using an Alternator in Renewable Energy Projects. Using an Alternator in Renewable Energy Projects Nathan Eagle Benjamin Olding Summer, During the summer of 2000, we attempted to hook an alternator up to a Nepali water mill (ghatta) to recharge batteries.

Boil water using only sunlight! 1 tube can raise 1 liter of water from 60'F(15'C) to 212'F(100'C) in one hour of direct sunlight. Use this box of 10 tubes for your own science or hobby projects, or for building your own powerful solar-powered home heating systems. Wind Turbine Permanent Magnet DC Motors - Working Principle. Wind energy, being one of the most important renewable energy sources, and wind turbines, which are necessary for producing wind energy, are very important in today's environmentally aware world.

Wind Turbine Permanent Magnet DC Motors - Working Principle

Below we outline detailed information about generators, with many power options right up to 7 MW, as well as one of the most important components of wind turbines and motors that is used in place of generators in individually made wind turbines. Permanent Magnet DC motors are the most important components that can be used in place of generators. The magnetic fields produced as a result of the spiral movement of the magnet within the component is that which produces electricity. Why Use a Motor to Generate Electricity?

The most important reason is that it is cheaper than electric generators and it also contains many components we utilize in our daily lives. Permanent Magnet DC Motor Types for Generating Electricity. DIY SOLAR WIND POWER. Electromagnets. How to survive. Nikola Tesla. Free Energy. Build a 15,000 rpm Tesla Turbine using hard drive platters. Here's a project that uses some of those dead hard drives you've got lying around. In the Tesla Turbine, air, steam, oil, or any other fluid is injected at the edge of a series of smooth parallel disks. The fluid spirals inwards and is exhausted through ventilation ports near the center of the disks.

A regular blade turbine operates by transferring kinetic energy from the moving fluid to the turbine fan blades. In the Tesla Turbine, the kinetic energy transfer to the edges of the thin platters is very small. Instead, it uses the boundary layer effect, i.e. adhesion between the moving fluid and the rigid disk. Build an Amazing Tesla CD Turbine. Build a real working turbine from recycled CD's! This Tesla CD Turbine is based on the Tesla turbine, which was invented by Nikola Tesla in the early 1900's.

Tesla's pumps and motors were unique in that they only used discs, and took advantage of the boundary layer effect. His smallest designs were over 100 horsepower. S'attaquer à la turbine de Tesla! Que faisons-nous? «Puissance de Tesla! Good morning everyone! I’ve been spending the last few days doing very in-depth research on the design of an efficient tesla turbine, and I’ve come to share my results thus far!

To be honest, I never knew a tesla turbine could be so complicated and advanced even though there are few moving parts and construction seems so simple. Turbine Tesla. Squirl Cage Rotor. Machine. James Albert Bonsack's cigarette rolling machine, invented in 1880 and patented in 1881. A simple machine is a device that simply transforms the direction or magnitude of a force, but a large number of more complex machines exist. Examples include vehicles, electronic systems, molecular machines, computers, television, and radio. an apparatus using mechanical power and having several parts, each with a definite function and together performing a particular task.

Etymology[edit] Electric motor. Various electric motors, compared to 9 V battery. An electric motor is an electrical machine that converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. The reverse of this would be the conversion of mechanical energy into electrical energy and is done by an electric generator. In normal motoring mode, most electric motors operate through the interaction between an electric motor's magnetic field and winding currents to generate force within the motor. In certain applications, such as in the transportation industry with traction motors, electric motors can operate in both motoring and generating or braking modes to also produce electrical energy from mechanical energy. Brushed DC electric motor. Induction motor. Three-phase totally enclosed fan-cooled (TEFC) induction motor with end cover on the left, and without end cover to show cooling fan.
