Wind Turbine

This is a turbine that I built for my dad this Christmas. The construction was pretty straight forward two 6" PVC half-pipes epoxied into slotted plywood. The assembly rested on a pair of rollerblade bearings. The performance was pretty decent, startup wind speed was around 1.5 Mph the total power output was fairly limited but was sufficient for a proof-of-concept. For more details on wind power and power point tracking you can visit my dad's website
