Warlock Engineering conduct research on wind energy technology. Our main objective has always been to reduce the cost without sacrificing the wind turbines performance or reliability. The papers presented below offer cost affordable and simplified designs for the homemade wind turbine builder. All turbines have been built for a fraction of the cost of commercial wind turbines with basic tools found in any home workshop.
