THIS IS A VIDEO THAT I WROTE TO FIGURE OUT HOW MANY RPMs THE WIND TURBINE WILL SPIN FREELY WITH NO LOAD ON IT IN THE GIVEN WIND CONDITIONS IN A CERTAIN AREA. THAT WAY I WOULD KNOW WHAT VOLTAGES TO EXPECT IN THE AVERAGE WINDS OF THAT AREA. AND IF THE WINDS ARE LOWER FOR THAT AREA I COULD EITHER SHORTEN THE PROP FOR A LITTLE MORE RPMs. OR I COULD JUST ADD MORE MAGNETS, OR REWIRE THE OUTPUTS. ONE OTHER ADVANTAGE TO THIS PROGRAM IS IF I KNOW THE EVERY DAY AVERAGE WIND SPEED , I CAN DESIGN THE ALTERNATOR TO GIVE ME A DESIRED OUTPUT. TOGETHER WITH THE OTHER PROGRAM THAT IS PART 2, I CAN FIGURE OUT THE EXPECTED POWER OUT AND DETERMINE THE PROP SIZE AND THE RPMS NEEDED TO GET THE JOB DONE, AND THE DESIRED WIRE SIZE. ALL THESE FACTORS ARE VERY IMPORTANT IN THE DESIGN OF A WIND TURBINE FOR YOUR AREA. THIS IS A GIFT TO YOU MY VIEWERS AND I HOPE YOU FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET THE MOST OUT OF IT. I WILL PROBABLY OFFER THE FULL 2 PROGRAMS TO DOWN LOAD IF I CAN FIND A SITE TO PLACE THEM AT. THESE PROGRAMS ARE IN GWBASIC LANGUAGE. THERE IS A SITE CALLED FRIENDLYRAT.COM WHERE YOU CAN DOWN LOAD THE BASIC COMPILER TO RUN THESE PROGRAMS. SORRY I LEARNED TO PROGRAM WHEN I WAS GOING THROUGH ROBOTICS AT TEXAS STATE TECHNICAL INSTITUTE IN SWEETWATER/ROSCOE CAMPUS, A DIVISION OF A&M. THIS WAS WAY BACK IN 1982 OR 83. HELLO COMMODORE 64 AND TRS 80s AND TI 99s THE CUTTING EDGE OF TECHNOLOGY FOR THE 80s , AND HELLO BASIC PROGRAMMING. THAT WAS WHEN 64 MEGABITES WAS REALLY COOL. BUT THE BEST THING IS THAT

FIRST PART OF FOUR SHOWING HOW TO CONSTRUCT THE YAW BEARING, AUTOMATIC FURLING MECHANISM, AND THE MOUNTING OF THE ALTERNATOR/ MOTOR CONVERSION. PLUS HOW TO FIND THE WIRES FOR USE IN THIS PROJECT. THE FULLEXPLAINATION OF HOW THE FURLING MECHANISM WORKS, AND WHY THE ALTERNATOR GETS MOUNTED A LITTLE TO THE SIDE. WHERE THE WIRES GO. RECTIFICATION TIPS IN PART. THE WHOLE CEILING FAN MOTOR CONVERSION AND CONSTRUCTION WILL BE FULLY EXPLAINED IN THE NEXT VIDEO, WITH WIRING OPTIONS FOR YOUR SPECIFIC NEEDS. AND OF COURSE HOW TO TELL HOW MANY MAGNET POSSITIONS,AND WHERE TO PLACE THEM. PLUS HOW TO RUN THE WIRES, AND HOW TO RECTIFY THE TWO SETS OF COILS INTO A TWO WIRE DC SYSTEM. THE NEXT VIDEO IS PROP CARVING AND BALLANCING, HOW TO FIGURE OUT THE ANGLES. I MAKE IT SEEM EASY. ITS A LOT OF FUN TO SEE YOUR WORK TAKE OFF FOR THE FIRST TIME. OH YA IN THIS VIDEO YOU GET TO SEE THE WIND TALK BACK WHEN I MENTION IT. I HAVE TO LAUGH WHEN I WATCH IT. THE WIND AND I HAVE TOO MANY COINCIDENCES TO DOUBT FRIENDSHIP. MUDDY MUDDY MUDD MANN
