The goal of this project is to build a wind turbine that harnesses kinetic wind energy and converts it to electricity. The project will help us better our understanding of energy conversion, electromagnetism, and wind energy principles. Studying wind technology is important since wind is “free”, clean, and renewable, a possible source of green energy.
