Abstract The purpose of our experiment was to utilize a wind turbine model to study the aerodynamic characteristics of a turbine. We changed the blade designs, the number of blades, the blade's angle of attack, and the gear ratios in the gearbox of the turbine. We connected our generator to a multimeter and found voltages produced by each blade design.
