Wind and Hydro-electric Power Simulation for the DC House Project

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in electronics, permanent magent generators, wind turbines

This project details the design and integration of a wind and hydro-electric power simulation system in correlation with the DC House Project. The simulator uses variable speed drives to rotate a DC motor which then drives a generator to produce output. This output is then regulated using a DC to DC converter which holds the […]
