Don Quixote

Daniel Alexander, Sarah Crabtree, Erick Foster, and John Collins


Device design
Device Design

Turbine made out of 12 ga. aluminum sheeting

Base and stand are wood

Plexiglas generator and pulleys

Rubber O-ring for belt

Shafts are 1/8” Stainless Steel Tig Rod


Mechanics
Mechanics

  • Angled blades to increase rotation

  • 2 to 1 ratio pulley system

  • 400 ft. of copper magnet wire

  • 4 magnets

Theoretical Power

P= Power in Watts

ρ= Air density (kg/m3)

A= Area of fan exposed to wind

v= Velocity of wind (m/s)

Actual Power

I= Current (amps) V=voltage

Efficiency


Design construction issues
Design/Construction Issues

  • First design had horizontal turbine

    • Support problems

  • Belt for pulley system

  • Attachment of generator to base

  • Materials for pulleys


Conclusions
Conclusions

  • It was fun and educational!

  • Implementation of previously learned knowledge

    • Rotational kinetic energy- pulley system

    • Conservation of energy

  • Project success

  • Stronger magnets and more wire coils

  • Great Team!
