Micro Wind Turbine Generator Module

A wind turbine converts wind energy into electricity. Two of the biggest hurdles for using wind power have been cost and the need for strong winds. New turbine designs are focusing on reducing the number of moving parts and improving efficiency. The Department of Engineering Science is collaborating with AGLOBAL TECH to test and verify a new Micro Wind Turbine which can be feasible and affordable for remote third world villages and urban settings, where towers are not practical or allowed.
