Scoraig Wind turbine workshop 2014 photos

Here are some photos of the workshop.  There were 8 participants plus me.  We built a 2.4 metre diameter 24-volt turbine from the Recipe Book.  Weather was great and we even got a little wind on Friday so the machine produced a few amps.

We made the magnet rotor moulds deep so that there was a covering of resin over the magnets.  But one disk had a bit of excessive resin on one side up to over 2 mm thick.  Peter decided to grind it off.  It’s scary grinding on magnets as they tend to grab the grinder, but by resting the guard on a piece of wood it proved to be doable.

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.
