Why this Blog?

The purpose of creation of this new blog was to add all my work that will solely related to my DIY Solar and wind electricity generation system. I will also add here the adventure of my DIY micro-hydro turbine (PAT) unit that has been planned to be implemented in the beautiful Kalam valley. In the recent past i unintentionally got attraction toward the green energy and studied a lot about.

My last visit to Karachi home was the turning point to divert all my intentions and resources toward getting into hybrid solar+wind electricity system. The 12 hours shedding at Karachi was really a mental shock to me. The 2Hours alternate load shedding scheme was so pathetic that for three nights i had only 6 hours of sleep in total. The Starting/Stopping the generator (located at the third floor) was a real muscular exercise especially the last part of the night.

The ready made solution requires a handsome amount of money. Here i will post my DIY approach to get the job done considering the advantage of being low cost, worth of experience and as per my requirement and quality. I intend to work on both Solar and wind turbine simultaneously so that to give the relief to my family.

Lets see will i have success in this endeavor?

Back to The WindMill

I am currently playing with three projects:
   1- WindMill   (90% completed)
   2- Solar Concentrator  (95% completed)
   3- Dual Axes Solar Tracking System (99% completed)

WindMill project needs more attention for long time. Yesterday did some more work. The Generator was assembled on the structure. today made Steel plate for holding the blades. As the blades are made out of 10mm thick PVC pipe. To attach the blade on the plate i need to add a wooden fixture between the blade and steel plate. This wooden structure should have flat at bottom and profiled at top. The Flat bottom shall rest on the steel plate whereas the blade will fixed on profile of wooden fixture.
I scanned a portion of PVC blade to get the profile vector of it and then made the 3D model for CNC machining.
You can see a piece of PVC blade perfectly fit on the CNC machined fixture.
I hope in few days i will start wiring of the windmill.
