Windbelts: Design, Performance, and ApplicationWindbelts: Design, Performance, and Application

This experiment was focused on the new, simpler, non-turbine alternative in wind power generation known as WindbeltsTM.  The objective of the experiment was to find how the orientation of a Windbelt to the airflow of a ventilator fan, divided into vertical and horizontal orientation, and belt width affect its voltage output through a 3-factor design of experiment.  Data was collected using a multimeter to measure voltage output (AC mV), risers to raise and lower either end of the belt for the vertical angle, and a ventilator fan providing wind power.
