Wind and Sun Energy Turbine Generator: An Educational Technology Instructional Material

Raul R. Bernaldez, Renato M. Castillo


Financial restraints hamper the provision of specialized teaching equipment that will support both the theoretical and practical aspects of learning power utilization and distribution, which includes the process of generating, distributing, and storing energy. The study was intently considered to design, construct, and evaluate a low-cost teaching tool specifically projected for students of Bachelor in Industrial Technology Major in Electrical Technology of the College of Industrial Technology and other similar courses in Bulacan State University and serve in addition to instant power supply for emergency cases. The researchers used project development research design.  Seventy five randomly chosen respondents evaluated the wind-and-sun energy turbine generator in terms of instructional viability, functionality, ease of use, and safety features. The wind-and-sun energy turbine generator was appropriately designed by joining the wind energy turbine generator and solar energy turbine generator with single battery storage and multiple power outlets. The instructional material consists of wind turbine generator and solar panel couple to a single battery storage and utilized a 1000 W inverter to provide 220 V AC to multiple power outlets. It was constructed from efficient, locally available, and recycled materials. The respondents evaluated the IM to be highly acceptable in all criteria. In addition, the construction of wind-and-sun energy turbine generator is easy to operate, simple to maintain, convenient to use and very useful educational simulator.
