KidWind Advanced Wind Experiment Kit Nacelle

This kit contains the unassembled parts of the Advanced Turbine Nacelle. Build your own wind turbine and experiment with wind power.

This kit enables a number of advanced experiments, especially with our generator module, the GenPack. Try different gear ratios, blade designs, generators, and more in a creative, hands-on inquiry into wind energy science. This nacelle also converts for conducting weightlifting experiments, making it a great option for studying mechanical and electrical energy.

Once built, this nacelle will mount on our wind turbine tower or on a standard 1-inch PVC pipe.

You Can:

  • Build blades and conduct experiments
  • Get higher power output than with the Basic Nacelle so you can power more loads.
  • Build your own nacelle (head) for wind turbine experiments.
  • Perform gear ratio experiments.

Concepts

  • Understanding clean energy
  • Exploring energy transformations
  • Understanding circuits, electricity, and magnetism
  • Understanding the relationship between energy and forces
  • Exploring forces and motion
  • Understanding angles
  • Exploring concepts of lift, drag, and torque
  • Developing and using physical models
  • Understanding differences between energy and power

Frequently Asked Questions
  • How many blades can I build?

    The hub has 12 holes, so you can experiment with up to 12 blades (2, 3, 4, 6, and 12 work well).

  • What is the gear ratio of the gear box?

    This kit has multiple gears, allowing 2:1, 4:1, 8:1, or direct drive configurations.

  • How can I build a simple PVC pipe tower for my wind turbine?

    Check out KidWind's Basic Wind Experiment Kit Manual for instructions on building the PVC tower.
