Lotus Creative Innovations is one of our latest Total Access partners. I immediately took note of their innovative product and thought it was one of a kind! The Wind Turbine Trainer is a scaled down model of a real commercial wind turbine to give real, hands-on training experience.
I talked with Arvind Gavali, the co-inventor of this innovative tool about the product and about why he founded the company.
Gavali told me that they designed it from a need his brother, Ashish, found while attending Iowa Lakes Wind Energy program. When he graduated and started working in the wind energy field, he felt that a hands-on learning tool was what people needed to simulate the real workings of a wind turbine. What better way to learn! He and his brother came up with the prototypes and now have several patents pending.
The kit comes pre-assembled, so instruction starts from actually building the turbine itself to show the basic mechanics behind the structure. It gives a complete introduction to kinetic energy as well as delving into the advanced level topics such as troubleshooting and diagnostics.
Wind Turbine Trainer applications:
- College students – to give real-world experience
- Any school age group – teach the basics of wind energy
- Wind Energy Company new hires
- Community education – benefits of having wind turbines in your area
- Homeowner education – benefits and savings
The model teaches the basic electro-mechanical aspects and has a clear gearbox to view the inner workings. It comes equipped with a 50 volt generator so you can make it work without the risk of electrical shock.
