This airfoil is for a vertical axis wind turbine. This parts are the prototypes. I am not finshed with construction and testing.
I used an origninal symetric NACA Airfoil for the vertical axis rotor blades.
What do you need to assemble?
-8mm rod (aluminium or steel)
You just need to push the airfoils on the rod to connect them. I think the rods should be at least 720mm(because one airfoil is 90mm high) long to get some energy.
I think it is possible to generate about 100 watts with 3 rotorblades with a height of 900mm.
- Finish the prints for three big turbine blades
- Assembling the blades to a windturbine
- Power tests
- Automatic storm control (turn the blades out of the wind)
