Technician demonstrates the classroom sized wind energy power plant

WindLab™ is housed in a self-contained wind tunnel and includes a variable frequency drive for programming custom wind profiles.  Its 3-phase generator is driven by a planetary gearbox.  A unique aspect includes rapid prototyped airfoils that enable open-ended student design.

This state-of-the-art wind power education system features custom on-board instrumentation created with LabVIEW™ and has an open architecture for student designed instrumentation and data collection. 

WindLab™ is a classroom-sized energy power plant built to last with aerospace grade components including an all alloy planetary gear box, 3-phase power generator, cut-away gondola cover, a stainless steel tower, and rapid prototyped blades.
