Furling turbine video

Here is a video of the machine that we erected at the end of the workshop in May.  It shows the tail furling as the gusts hit the 3 metre turbine on  a low tower in turbulence.  At one point the brake switch is applied and you can see the blades come to a halt in about one second.

You can find a lot more videos on my YouTube page.

I live off-grid in NW Scotland and have spent my life playing with wind turbines. I also love small hydros. Hands on renewable energy is my thing and I like to learn and to share my experiences.
