This set includes a 8-inch hex shaft for use with the Advanced Wind Experiment Kit Nacelle.
Note: This set will not work with the Basic Wind Experiment Kit Weightlifter Nacelle.
Use this kit to Evaluate different blade designs, gear ratios, generators, and devices to measure electrical and weightlifting power, whilst discovering advanced aspects of wind turbine technology. Containing everything you need to unleash the advanced concepts of wind turbine technology! Conduct the same investigations as the Basic Wind Experiment Kit but with the ability to generate more power at higher voltages ( 0.5 V-20 V). This kit is ideal for years 8 through 12 as well as college students. It will provide young scientists with the opportunity to investigate gearboxes, Aerofoils and with the GenPack add-on; generator construction. They can also design and construct their own blades to generate electricity, lift weights, and pump water. Simply add your own wind source, basic tools, and imagination! This kit is also available in the Kidwind Advanced Experiment Kit, Classroom Pack.£201.00 ex VAT | £241.20 Inc VAT Add to basket
The simpleGEN is an easy-to-build AC generator that allows students to explore the basics of electrical generator design. Your students can now investigate the fundamentals of electrical generator design with an easy to build AC generator. The KidWind SimpleGEN enables you to demonstrate Faraday's law, light LEDs, and perform experiments that explore how coils, magnets, and rotation affect electrical generation. Convert your generator into a simple motor just by making a few quick alterations whilst also allowing for greater exploration. Further still, you can convert your simpleGEN into a wind turbine nacelle. The simpleGEN classroom pack has enough materials to build 10 generators and includes three digital multimeters. This Kit is also available in the KidWind simpleGEN Classroom Pack.
This smooth running generator delivers high power output at relatively low revs and is the primary generator for wind turbine experiments. It is also the standard generator used in the KidWind Challenge competition events.£10.00 ex VAT | £12.00 Inc VAT Add to basket
