A 2-day course is coming to Manchester on 20th & 21st May 2017, giving participants the opportunity to learn how to build a wind turbine.
Between eight and twelve participants guided by two or three instructors spend two days building a 1.8m diameter 350W Hugh Piggott wind turbine. All the participants spend time working on each of the three main parts of the build (wood, metal, and electronics) rotating through the different bases on the first day. On the second day the group then comes together to assemble the machine. A short theory session is also held each morning where participants talk about the background behind the design.
No previous knowledge or experience is assumed, and any participants who are new to wind power theory and/or using the various tools are supported throughout the course. Participants more familiar with either element are able to develop practical skills and we are always on hand to answer and discuss more in depth questions.
