The Tutorial Renewable Set is your complete solution for teaching renewable energy, consisting of: an Electrolyzer, Fuel Cell, Methanol Fuel Cell, Reversible Fuel Cell, Solar Wind Set, and Measurement Set.  The sets feature modular components for flexibility as well as easy set-up and use, and allow experiments across the whole range of hydrogen applications, including automotive applications, solar, and wind experiments. 

Recommended Grades: 6 - 12

Tutorial Renewable Set Includes:

✔ A wind turbine on a stand that provides electricity for electrolysers or other loads.
✔ Fuel cells with air-breathing option.
✔ Magnetic bases, allowing horizontal or vertical assembly.  Also includes metallic vehicle chassis for solar and fuel cell car set-ups.
✔ Redesigned gas storage tanks with a compact and easy-to-use design and easy-to-read measurement marks.
✔ A specially-designed experiment binder with instructions and templates for each experiment, all printed on waterproof paper for use in the lab.

The wind turbine can be run indoors with ordinary table fans, or in any breeze.  It can be paired with the PEM electrolyser cell to allow a number of experiments in the realm of renewable energy.  For instance, run solar experiments to power the electrolyser and store the resulting hydrogen and oxygen gases.  Then, generate power with the PEM fuel cell in either Hydrogen / Oxygen or Hydrogen / Air mode.  Finally, build a self contained solar-hydrogen-system, or fill up a hydrogen-powered model car at its own solar hydrogen station.  

The Tutorial Renewable Set also includes a Direct Methanol Fuel Cell (DMFC), as well as the PEMFC Kit, which allows students to assemble and disassemble a working PEM fuel cell, and a convenient set of holder brackets that allow you to present the components on any magnetic whiteboard.
