I bought a beautiful home brewed wind generator
from a guy that hand shaped the blades. He was rightfully proud of his work
and bragged how the generator
would spin in the slightest breath of air. On the day i hung up the generator
, the wind
in the anchorage was about 8-10kts and all the generators around were happily turning. As the wind
slowed, one by one, all the generators but mine quit spinning. It wasnt ontil the wind stopped that I realized that I had forgotten to install the inline diode.
