Want to build a wind turbine for your home? I have gathered several PDFs for those who want to build there own wind turbines and have links to them at the bottom of this post. They cover all types of wind turbines and issues that you may run in to such as wind speeds and noise. From reading these my self I have found that the Hi-VAWT takes all into consideration and is easy to replicate.
In VENTURI horizontal axis Wind Turbines wind turbines the blades rotate and describe a circular surface. The rotor extracts the energy from the air flowing through this rotor surface and has a theoretical maximum efficiency of 59 according to Betz’s law. These are a bit harder to replicate but look real cool.
Over 100 pages in all.
