What's new here?

Continuing on from the PicoTurbine wind Turbines we move onto the PicoTurbine SKY-Z Horizontal Wind Turbines.


Horizontal turbines are more efficient that the cylindrical turbines, at least when they are facing the wind. They require more alignment to get the maximum efficiency, and the power they generate is determined by the design of the blades, etc. But they are much more conventional windmills in people’s minds.


The standard SKY-Z kit comes with 3 8″ blades and the generating equipment. The SKY-Z Plus adds more blade designs so that the experiments can have a greater variety.


Expanding on this kit is the SKY-Z Limitless Horizontal Turbine. This set includes all of the above items as well as 18 blades as well as a rectification kit with diodes, breadboard, etc. This allows the maximum amount of turbine customization and experimentation.


The Horizontal Turbines are yet another economic way for students to experiment with Wind Energy  in the classroom or at home.
