Sharp Cycloturbine–Vertical Access Wind Turbine (VAWT)

I’m working on a wind turbine to generate a small amount of electricity for the more out-of-the-way parts of the homestead.

I’m going with Peter Sharp’s design. This is something I played with earlier, but it’s time to make a practical device.

I’ve designed the parts I need. I’m going to print them out on the 3D printer once it’s up and running.



I had a hard time finding the PDF about Sharp’s cycloturbine, so I’m posting it here. ┬áIt’s the reason for this post–to ensure that the PDF doesn’t get lost.
