The following research questions need to be addressed before detailed design can be commenced.

  1. Ideal airfoil profile for wind turbine.
  2. Median Wind Speed in my location (Southern Tasmania) for peak efficiency.
  3. Turbine RPM at this speed
  4. Appropriate Brush less motor that can be direct driven or driven using off the shelf gear box.
