This wind turbine is based on the Lenz II design which measures 4 ft tall X 3 ft in diameter.

The parts can be purchased at http://www.WindGenKits.com

It has a 12 magnet, dual rotor alternater with 9 coils. Each coil is 70 turns.

The wing construction is a steel frame made of laser cut ribs with tubular spars and a trailing edge. The ribs fit into notches on the spars and was welded together. The skin is .030" aluminum that has been fastened with rivets.

The rotating assembly spins on a fixed shaft. Bearings and wing spokes are bolted to the center tri-star carrier plates. The wings can be quickly removed and swapped.

Currently this turbine feeds a small bank of 2 GC-110 wet cell batteries wired in series for a 12V system. AC output is provided by a 1500W inverter.
