There is a lot more to this subject than I have covered in this video, this is just the basics. I have used the Wind Turbine Handbook as my primary reference material, it covers pretty much everything you need to know about wind turbines. If you are studying this subject academically I highly recommend it. You buy it on amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/Wind-Energy-Handbook-Tony-Burton/dp/0470699752

This is the up to date build process for the OpenSourceLowTech.org $30 Lenz2 vertical axis wind turbine. The turbine can be made almost entirely from recycled materials with basic tools in six hours for $20-35. It is tested at 35-40% mechanically efficient, generates 130 watts mechanical in a 30 km/h wind, 1 kilowatt at 60 km/h, and can survive 100 km/h gusts.
