Adriaan continues to add to the impressive list of reports that are free to download from his web site. These provide a valuable resource to students or designers working on small wind projects.
My newest report KD 672 can be copied for free from my website www.kdwindturbines.nl at the menu KD-reports. The title of this report is: “Use of the VIRYA-1 or the VIRYA-1.25AF for pumping of drinking water using a 12 V battery and a pump with a 12 V, DC motor”. Although the VIRYA-1 is a small wind turbine with a rotordiameter of only 1 m, it is big enough to pump a flow of water q of 200 litres per day against a height H = 17 m at a wind speed less than 3 m/s. I would like it if you mention the availability of this report in your log.(email from Adriaan Kragten)
