PicoTurbine Savonius Wind Turbine Kit (AC) Intermediate Stem Lab – PWV4
The Picoturbine Savonius WInd Turbine (AC) Intermediate is the same as our kit number PWV3 with the addition of 4 AC to DC Labs. This kit is a great introduction to wind turbine technology and green energy. Once assembled it will generate alternating current (AC) via magnetic induction. Easy to assemble, vertical turbine can be spun by hand, a fan, hair dryer or ideally – outside in the wind. Blades capture wind from all directions.
Includes an alternator to produce AC power. An LED light indicator shows that AC power is being produced. Rare earth magnets are included but you can supply other types of magnets to see how they effect the energy being produced. In addition with this intermediate kit, you get 4 AC to DC labs to further your exploration and experimentation for you or your students.
Good for grades 5 through college coursework.
Dimensions are 204 x 145 x 145 millimeters.
