Wind turbine design - How to design a wind turbine for home?
Wind turbines were designed to catch the wind energy and convert it into electrical power. More and more people want to know how to design a small wind turbine for house. There are three wind turbines: horizonal axis wind turbine, vertical axis wind turbine and floating wind turbine. In this article, Aeolos will tell you how to design a horizonal wind turbine.
Wind turbine design need to consider many factors, not only the wind turbine components design but also the wind speed, site, noisy and many other issues.
Wikipedia has a good introduction about wind turbine design.
Michael Schmidt from Georgia Institute of Technology also contribute us a great article about how to design a small wind turbine.
For the floating wind turbine, it is still in testing period. Aeolos wind turbine will show some example pictures to you.
