  • Perrys Windmill-Alyssa Schroder- -Christina Fraser--Tiffany Blevins- -Zack Henley-

  • Materials

    Wood ($11.19) Total = $39.12Wire ($6.59)Magnets ($8.00)Paint ($4.00)Glue ($1.99)Screws ($.40)Metal bar ($2.97)Epoxy ($3.98)

  • DesignGenerator We connected two magnets to a rod which rested in a wooden box. Approximately 600 feet of wire are wrapped around the box to collect the magnetic field. Windmill We connected five wooden propeller blades to the rod connected to the magnets. Which spin the magnets creating the magnetic field.

  • Construction IssuesHow to spin the magnets?What size magnets?Which way to wrap the wire?What materials to use?Size of propeller blades?

  • Power & EffeciencyVfan = 20 mph, 8.9408 m/sA = .05067 m V = 5.2987 Volts

    PPotential = pAV3PPotential = (1.204)(.05067)(8.94083) = 22.1813 Watts

    Effeciency = (Actual)/(Potential) x 100 = (.56/22.1813) x 100 = 2.525 % Pactual = I x V Pactual = .56 Watts

  • ConclusionGenerators are not as hard as they lookGetting the right materials is keyUsing a magnetic field to generate electricity is simple and fairly easy.
