Design pattern for cutting of PVC pipe

This is the patternfor how to cut the PVC pipe to make six same blades for wind turbine rotor!!! click on the image to enlarge it:

if u need to make 4 blades follow the same instructions using some different required values!!!.... this is the most effective and economic way to make blades and there is no wastage of the PVC pipe at all

Here is the Lay out of my project

This is a flow chart symmetric diagram of my project.....  everything is in sequence!!!.....

1. Wind turbine:

The purpose of wind turbine is to gain the energy from the air and convert it into Electrical energy. This is done by spinning the shaft of the turbine to produce current.

2. Charge controller:

The heart of this project is the charge controller, which is so callend the manager... it regulates the current and supply this to the battries at low current and high voltage to charge them.

3. Batteries:

As most of u know what does a battery is used for... all the batteries are connected in parallel and thus is called Battery Bank.

4. Inverter:

The last part is the inverter whose application is simple that it just converts the 12 volts to 220 volts to rum home appliances.... if ur batteries are 100AH then u might get a backup of 4~5 hours of free electricity!

My Charge controller circuit and multi meter......

This is the charge controller.... used to manage current to the batteries!!... it regulates the voltage!!!....will be connected to the wind turbine and batteries!!

i love my multimeter.... its awesome.... i dont know what would i do without it.....

Wind turbine rotor test drive!!!

This is my youtube video of my home made Wind turbine rotor from washing machine blade do check out!!!

my home made PVC blades, test drive of the wind rotor.... in approx. ~4m/s wind speed...i'll upload all the videos of my wind turbine project, but do subscribe!!!
I'm doing mechanical engineering from UET Lahore, 2007 session

My wind turbine....

Currently i'm working on a project .... that is about a wind turbine installation .... i'm gonna upload sum of its pics....

1) Step 1

cutting of pvc pipe for making turbine rotor.

still cutting

disc i used to mount rotor blades

final shape of the blades

These are spare blades... that can b used as a replacement is in case any blade is broken

Assembled wind rotor.... using nuts and bolts
