Introduction of Wind Mill
As the world is now moving towards alternative and clean energy resources due to fast depreciation of fossil fuel, one of which is wind energy. It can be transformed into various forms of energy by different methods and windmill or wind turbine is one of the best methods to transform wind energy into electrical energy.
A simple Windmill or wind turbine can be made by using simple household things to understand the aerodynamics and function of wind mill.
Following material are required:
Corrugated Cardboard Sheet
As the corrugated cardboard is hard enough to resist against bending when air blow, it is be used to make blades for wind turbine. Cardboard sheets of 9×9 and 6×6 square inch are required for making of blades and base of wind mill respectively.
Stand of the wind mill is made with disposable cups and blades are attached to it.
Round Craft Sticks
Round sticks are used to attach blades with stand.
- Paper tape
- Scotch tape
- Some weight
STEPS OF CONSTRUCTION
Making Of Blades
Making of Tower For Wind Mill
- Pass the round stick with blades through the T-tower.
- Tie free end of the thread with end of the stick.
- Put some weight in the cup to check whether the wind mill is able to raise weight or not.
Check the wind mill working by using an air dryer or blower.
