Make a wind turbine using a ceiling fan

Scott Brown teaches us how to make a wind turbine using a ceiling fan in this video. First, place steel banding around the middle of the ceiling fan base. Now, cross all the combinations of the wires and keep them close together so you don't confuse them. Hook these up to DC terminals so you get around 50 volts on both of them. Hook them parallel so you keep the voltage down to around 50 volts together. Then place the wires into a connector that has a pipe connected to the bottom. This will create pressure through the pipe creating a wind turbine, enjoy!

thats a cool video, wish you can share more specific details on the wiring steps about the proper rectification and and circuit protection and storing process of energy. i wish i could build my own windmill too coz here in our place electricity dont come cheap and is monopolized were forced to pay our bills on time no considerations whatsoever.

How do I find out the measurements for the length and size of the pipe?

on part 2, rectified ac is still single phase, even if you parallel another out of phase ac source, since the phase is specific to AC, and once rectified, your output is dc. even if it isnt filtered.
