P12401: Wind Energy Collection to Energy Bank
This webpage documents the Wind Energy Collection
to Energy Bank (WECEB) project. This project
represents the numerous core functions of a
Sustainable Energy System for Education (SESE). It
will collect energy from the wind and convert the
mechanical energy into electrical. The electrical
energy will then be transmitted to a storage unit.
Other users, MSD teams, and students will
eventually consume the energy captured and stored
within the WECEB's storage unit; specifically
through the Charging Dock Module being developed by
MSD team P12402.
The Mechanical Engineering Department is the
primary customer for this system. A previous MSD
project, P11401, used a wind
turbine to charge a small battery. This project
will be a good basis for ours.
Final WECEB Assembly. Foreground: Turbine &
Stand, Background: Battery Enclosure.
