Looks like a substancial step forward in design. Did you achieve your goal of 100W at X wind speed?

yestarday was the first day that i have decided to stop thinking about the Vawt design and focus on the output. so i am buying a 30vdc ametek dc motor and i think i am ready to do some output testing, because it is time for that.

i will post results when i get few tools and the ametek.

regards
