Homemade Wind Turbine Generator! – Wind Power Generator! – simple DIY (runs radio!)

Homemade Wind Turbine Generator! Wind Power Generator. Easy DIY Instructions. items needed: PVC Pipe, propeller blade, DC motor and wire. Stand is made of 3/4″ PVC. Produces essentially “free” usable power to run radios and small lights etc… add the optional battery/inverter for making AC power. adding a storage battery also makes it possible to run larger items (whether the wind is blowing or not) …and add a small inverter to run AC powered items. this “table top” size model would be useful in many off-grid situations including SHTF/Emergency/Power Outage/Camping/Rural Living etc… simple assembly/disassembly. durable, lightweight and portable. notes: propeller blades of this kind can be found at your local hobby store. use PVC Pipe Cement to make the stand more “permanent”. the wire i used is from an old extension cord. since filming i’ve reduced the length of the wire from 8 ft. down to 2 ft. (shortening the wire increases power output). low power radio was used. operates on as little as 28-35ma at 2v-3v. (43ma at 2.4v was average output using small desk fan). volt/amp readings on meter were all over the place when i used the leaf blower (5 to 10 times higher vs. desk fan). leaf blower produces wind up to 140MPH. i blasted the wind turbine with blower from about 3 feet away for over 5 mins and it stood firm entire time.

  1. For better results, you can build one that rotates freely so that it can follow changes in wind direction automatically. A tail vane and two right-angle gears will come in handy here. You can stuff the motor down the vertical pipe and have the right-angle gear mounted on it with the other mounted on the turbine shaft.

  2. Maybe I'm not sure of how the hole set up works. But why do you need a battery? Can I just put this outside and have the wind spin the propeller And have Free energy. ?

  3. hello sir, i was wondering if you could help me with a few questions because i have an energy project and i decided to create a wind turbine, and thanks to your video i find it possible to make but just need a few answers
    1) you said they sell the blades in the hobby shop but since I live in Canada, we don't have that store anymore, so i was wondering if you could tell me where i could get it from or where i could order it from( what is it called)?
    2)what is the name of the wire and how could i get it?
    3)where could i get PVC pipes from?
    4) what is the code to your motor?
    Now these were my questions! I hope you have time to answer these questions A.S.A.P because your my only hope for getting a good mark
    Thank you:)
