Wiring on the terminal strip was rearranged by separating the DuPont wires and reconnecting on the terminal block side. This fast rearrangement due to the breadboard was a huge time saver.
Tangle of wires from controller
Stations were numbered from the bottom to the top so station one is at the bottom of the test base and station five is at the top. A large grounding wire (22AWG) was run to station three then branched out to each subsequent station. Each station was attached and appropriate wires were run to each terminal. Zip ties were used periodically to secure wires.
Test base with completed wiring
Files for Wind Generator Test Base:
- Arduino code
- STL model for bearing holder no longer used but maybe useful for someone
- STL model for 3/4" PVC bearing adapter
- STL model for pulley
Connect electrical to stations
- Debug program
- Go to next phase and test turbine designs
The rest of the posts for this project have been arranged by date.
