Small Scale Wind Turbine

Sam Du Mez, Eric Heynen, & Mike Woudenberg

Sponsor: Dordt College Engineering Department

The purpose of the small-scale wind turbine project was to improve on the earlier design of the wind turbine on Dordt’s campus. The team set out to design, build, and test a small-scale giromill vertical axis wind turbine. The team worked with Dordt College faculty to ensure a project that could be implemented on campus.
