PicoTurbine Sky-Z Limitless Wind and Solar Turbine Kit (AC) Advanced Stem Lab – PWH8
This Advanced wind and solar turbine kit builds on the basic SKY-Z PWH3 kit by adding a .9W solar panel and 8 comprehensive DC motor labs. Also included: Light bulb, battery charging system and digital multimeter. Picoturbine PWH8
The 26-inch tall Sky-Z Wind Turbine kit generates AC power using a magnetic induction energy generator that YOU build. Uses 4 coils and 4 magnets. Produces 1.5V to 7V of power at 150mA.
Includes, 6X 6 inch, 6X 8 inch, & 6X 10 inch blades and variable hub with pitch angles.
A wind turbine is a device that converts kinetic energy from the wind into electrical power. A wind turbine used for charging batteries may be referred to as a wind charger.
The result of over a millennium of windmill development and modern engineering, today’s wind turbines are manufactured in a wide range of vertical and horizontal axis types. The smallest turbines are used for applications such as battery charging for auxiliary power for boats or caravans or to power traffic warning signs. Slightly larger turbines can be used for making contributions to a domestic power supply while selling unused power back to the utility supplier via the electrical grid. Arrays of large turbines, known as wind farms, are becoming an increasingly important source of renewable energy and are used by many countries as part of a strategy to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels.
