Wind Turbines

This training program has been developed from the methodology of Hugh Piggott, author of The Wind Turbine Recipe Book. During the one-week course, participants will learn to construct a simple, low-cost 600W wind turbine with a 2.4m-diameter rotor. The course will involve woodwork to hand grind the blades of the rotor, metalworking, and generator fabrication.

Eligibility: Some knowledge of electrical required.

Duration: Six day course; Classes from 8:30am to 5pm.

Course content:
This course will be taught in a hands-on format, teaching students step by step how to build their own wind turbine.
