How to Make Small wind turbine at your home. You can see hundreds of make small wind turbine videos describing how to make small wind turbine at home easily. But many of them are not very helpful. Many of them do not offer a complete guide to make small wind turbine that works as a real one.
People are not satisfied, which can be understood from their comments. They are searching google again, again and again for more Make Small wind turbine videos. So I decided to build a small wind turbine and upload the making video on youtube. I went to town and bought necessary tools and parts from a hardware shop. Then I asked my friend to shoot video using my Smartphone.
How to Make Small Wind Turbine

A wind turbine propeller converts wind energy n to rotational mechanical energy. It is the most important part of a wind turbine.Let’s learn how to make turbine propeller.
Buy a 10 inch PVC Pipe (3inch in diameter)
equally divide the edge perimeter
Cut the pipe into blades as shown in video- watch video
Make holes as shown in the picture on anything round in shape with 2.5 inches.
Then screw 3 blades to it using cycle screws.
Keep in mind
The weight of each blade should be equal.
Each blade should be positioned on the plate at equal distances.
Wind turbine Dynamo Casing

Dynamo casing holds both Dynamo and Autorotation Mechanism. A dynamo is used to convert mechanical energy or rotational energy generated by wind turbine propeller into electrical energy. If a dynamo converts mechanical energy into Alternating current it is known as Alternators. Different types of generators are available in the market.
A piece of pen
PVC Fitting T
Buy 2 bearings
Buy a dynamo 3V
Connect the dynamo to the PVC fitting.
Connect the two bearings to a common axis. A piece of a pen can be used as the axis.
connect one bearing to the PVC T
The bearing setup is an autorotation mechanism (yaw mechanism). It helps the wind turbine to face the wind. When the direction of the wind changes from east to west, the tail-autorotation mechanism will automatically adjust the propeller to directly face the wind to utilize maximum wind energy.
Make small Wind turbine Base
The turbine base and the post holds the propeller, dynamo, tail, and autorotation mechanism. It is very easy to make the turbine base. Buy some PVC fittings.
Elbow – 4
PVC T – 3
PVC pipe pieces
Connect these fittings as shown in the figure.
Make Small Wind turbine tail
Small Wind Turbine tail[/caption] Most of the DIY wind turbine videos on youtube doesn’t have a tail- autorotation mechanism. Without a tail-autorotation mechanism, a Small wind turbine is not complete. What is the purpose of a tail? The tail auto rotation mechanism will help the propeller to change the direction to face the wind. Th tail will force the propeller to face the wind even at higher wind speeds.
