    VERTICLE AXIS WIND TURBINE (TWISTER)

    This is my vawt it is made of pine wood covered with aluminum sheeting and the tower is made of steel.
    It can produce 500 watts with the generator I have in it now in a good wind.VERTICLE AXIS WIND TURBINE (TWISTER)-010.jpgVERTICLE AXIS WIND TURBINE (TWISTER)-008.jpg.

    I liked it very much. I am planning a similar one and started sourcing various components for it. Did you build your own PM rotor & stator, including coiling or used a ready to buy PM generator? I wish to build these myself. I have an inverter of 2 KW with appropriate batter bank, which gets charged from the grid now. I wish to build VAWT with enough power generated to charge my battery bank, so that my inverter would do the rest to supply me AC power to my home. I am in india and we use 24oV grid supply and all our appliances work on that voltage.

    thanks for sharing the pictures

    HAPPY NEW YEAR

    Hi Kadambi, goto youtube and type in capt ward to see videos of the build of vawt also see captain lee for more videos 4 parts.
    I bought the generator already made you will see it, but i have little wind here so I don't know how much power it will make,
    probably 500 watts. My vawt wings are 4 foot long if you plan to get max wind maby you should make it bigger than mine?
    I used a washing machine motor on my hawt from Austraila and it put out 1 kilowatt, see my other windmill on the forum.
    Good luck with your project you can email me any time.

    Cool wind turbine. The clock tower bit is a huge bonus!
