Abstract

This project represents the design and implementation of a system used with the Wind Turbine on the Atwater Kent building at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. The system measures the current and voltage outputs from the Wind Turbine, performs calculations, and displays this information graphically online. Finally, a charging circuit was also designed to harvest the energy from the Wind Turbine and charge a battery with it.
