The goal of this project is to develop a prototype of a new design of wind turbine that can fold in on itself and store itself inside an underground compartment. This kind of dynamic wind turbine could be used in places where they don’t want the wind turbines exposed all the time, like only operating the wind turbines at night time. At the time the semester ended, our model had some functional motion mechanisms. None of the motion mechanisms have been motorized as of yet.
