Wind power systems laboratory activity for junior high school students

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article presents a wind power system laboratory activity and an outline for evaluating student performance. The current work designs and implements the laboratory to assist teachers in achieving the teaching objective of this activity. The laboratory teaching activities introduce energy sources, wind energy technology, electricity storage, wind power system testing and activity evaluation. The wind power system testing activity includes eight topics: setting up the experimental module, operating instruments, wind velocity measure activity, rotor diameter activity, wind speed activity, blade angle activity, blade number activity and data summary. The laboratory activity was first offered in 2007 at Taiwan junior high school. This laboratory activity proved effective for introducing students to wind energy technology via activity evaluation.
