Dotting the hills of America from New York to California, majestic wind turbine
farms are beginning to emerge as this exciting technology produces clean renewable
energy for thousands of people. Explore wind farm technology with your students
using KELVIN’s® Wind Farm Lab.
Students will design, build and test
a wind turbine generator that produces electricity using wind power. Their
generator will become
part of a three generator wind farm system.
The lab includes the KELVIN© Wind
Turbine Mounting Stand which enables three wind turbines to be joined in series
or parallel and tested at one time. Also
in the lab is the Electrical Output Monitoring System to measure the current
and voltage of each generator or the total output of the wind farm as the load
on the system is varied. Specially designed for this lab we include KELVIN’s
Controllable Wind Machine. The wind machine allows the control of the wind
speed and wind direction using movable louvers. The lab also includes  Wind
Designer Kits with instructions and resource materials.
