KIDWIND WIND TURBINE GENERATOR 10 PACK
This is KidWind's primary generator for wind turbine experiments because it runs smoothly and provides high power output at a relatively low RPM.

This generator has 1.2m leads which are attached with shrink-wrap reinforced soldering. Typical output in non-geared wind devices is 0.5-2.5volts at 0.1-0.3amps.

Activities:
• Use this item as a DC motor or generator. Spin the driveshaft to produce electric current. Higher RPM yields higher power output.

Concepts:
• Exploring energy transformations; designing, building and evaluating devices that convert one form of energy into another.
• Undertanding renewable energy
• Exploring circuits, electricity and magnetism
• Relationship between energy and forces
• Exploring forces and motion
• Developing and using physical models
• Understanding differences between energy and power
• Designing controlled experiments
• Optimising designs
• Analysing data

Materials included:
• Wind Turbine Generator

Specifications:
• Voltage output: 0-10V
• Amperage output: 0-0.3amps
• Diameter: 31.8mm
• Wire length: 1.2m
• Shaft diameter: 2mm

FAQs:
Q How much power can this generator make?
A Typical output in non-geared wind devices is 0.5-2 volts at 0.1-0.4 amps. Geared wind turbines can produce higher power output.

Q What size is the generator driveshaft??
A This generator has a 2mm driveshaft.

Q Will this generator work with the wind turbine hub?
A Yes, the hub fits perfectly on this generator driveshaft.
