The wind turbines planet comprises three wind turbines that can be mounted and fixed to the rooftop of any building allowing trainees to investigate electrical power generation from wind power using real-world components. Using this training planet, trainees will get familiar with the components of such systems as well as the affecting parameters on the generated power efficiency.

                                     
  • Wind power generation means getting the electrical energy by converting wind energy into rotating energy of the blades and converting that rotating energy into electrical energy by the generator.
  • Wind turbines planet can be mounted to the rooftop of any building (open areas) where normally wind blows.
  • Trainees will get to inspect the affecting parameters on the output power such as speed of wind.
  • Trainees will be able to investigate the influence of changing turbine’s blade angle as well as yaw angle on the output power and determine the optimum angle for each.
  • Trainees will study the optimum arrangement and distance between turbines simulating larger scale wind stations.
  • Through this planet, trainees will get familiar with typical components of wind turbines including rotor, blades, fixation arm, hubs, and generator.
  • The training system consists of three wind turbines, each one owns three horizontal blades which is considered the most common type of wind turbines used worldwide.
  • Trainees will be able to study the arrangement of wind turbines and its direction to get the maximum of wind power.
  • All of the three wind turbines are connected to a control box which provides U, V, W terminals for easy access.
  • ON/OFF selector for each wind turbine is included in the control box allowing trainees to operate each turbine individually.
  • Each turbine is represented by a LED on the control box indicating its operation.
