The KidWind High Torque Generator is another option for your wind turbine generator. The High Torque Generator is great for load devices with higher current draw (like the water pump). When compared to the standard Wind Turbine Generator this High Torque Generator produces lower voltage but higher current for a given rotor speed.

This generator has the same 2mm driveshaft as the standard KW-GEN Wind Turbine Generator so the KidWind Hub is interchangeable with either motor. The generator also has 1.2m leads with shrink-wrap reinforced soldering.

• Use the High Torque Generator as a DC motor or generator
• Spin the driveshaft to produce electric current
• Explore torque vs. speed
• Compare airfoils and flat blades

• Exploring energy transformations
• Understanding circuits, electricity and magnetism
• Exploring the relationship between energy and forces
• Understanding the relationship between forces and motion
• Developing and using physical models
• Understanding differences between energy and power
• Designing controlled experiments
• Optimising designs
• Analysing and interpreting data

Materials included:
• High Torque Generator with wires attached
• High Torque Generator specification sheet

• Voltage output: 0-10V
• Amperage output: 0-0.5amps
• Motor diameter: 24mm
• Wire length: 1.2m
• Shaft diameter: 2mm

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.

Q Why do you call it the High Torque Generator?
A Good question! Torque is related to amperage – and this motor generates higher amperage. The water pump for example, needs lots of torque to pump a lot of water. By pushing more amperage into the pump we give it more torque to pump water.

Q Will this light an LED?
A Yes.
