==Introduction==
===Objective===
[[File:Windbelt.JPG|thumb|left]]
The objective of the project is to design, build and implement multiple versions of the windbelt generator for [http://www.otrosmundoschiapas.org/ Otros Mundos]. Our initial goal was to power Otros Mundos' telecommunication devices in the field, using wind energy. However, the prototype developed did not generate sufficient energy to power these telecommunication systems. The refined goal for this work is to inspire interested people and to provide them the information necessary to create their own Windbelts.
 
=== Background on the client===
# Attach one large washer to a 4 inch screws.
# Attach the 10 inch piece of ribbon with a small piece of electrical tape and wrap it all of the way around the screw in the space between the washers. This piece of ribbon should be a big enough that its diameter is bigger than the size of the magnets you're going to use to produce electricity<ref>see [[HSU Chiapas Windbelt ASE/Literature review]] for more on electricity.</ref>
# Slip the other 2.5 inch washer onto the screw leaving about 1.5 inches of space between the two washers. (You can adjust the size of the space between them based on how big you want to roll your coil.)
# Carefully take the end of the copper coil and wrap it around the end of the screw that is on the outside of the 2.5 inch washer. Make sure it's firmly wrapped so that its stays in place.
==== Existing Models ====
*[[http://www.humdingerwind.com/#/wi_micro/| microbelt specs]Microbelt specifications] **the The microbelt, seen below in figure Figure 2, can provide clean energy to power the billions of wireless light and power sensors around the world; by using aeroelastic flutter rather than a spinning turbine. The microbelt is able to provide power to wireless sensors as long as there is airflow hitting it. For example, under a car, inside the ducting of buildings, or at the outside of a building.Table 1 and Figure 3 show the correlation b/w between wind speed and power output of the device. The higher the wind speeds, the greater the electrical current.

*[http://www.humdingerwind.com/#/wi_medium/ Windcell]
**The windcell, seen in Figure 3(Clich the link above), is a one meter long windbelt electricity generator. This design was developed to meet energy needs that range from 0.1kwh-1kwh per month. Be sure to watch the video!
*[http://www.humdingerwind.com/#/wi_large/ Windcell Panels]
**This windbelt design can be set up into arrays of windcells that can be hooked up to supplement the grid. This sort of windbelt design could be on every roof and wall of everything from skyscrapers to personal homes.

*D-Lab Windbelt
**Team SEAASE's first attempt at creating a working Windbelt was fashioned after the "D-Lab Windbelt". The "D-Lab Windbelt" is modeled after Shawn Frayne's "Humdinger Windbelt". After carefully studying the D-Lab video on youtube.com and the online instructions for the device, Team SEA began collecting materials from various locations in San Cristobal. A large amount of the tools used in the creation of the SEAASE/D-Lab Windbelt Prototype #1 were borrowed from Otros Mundos, the organization that has commissioned Team SEA and HSU ASE to build a Windbelt. After collecting the necessary materials for the D-Lab Windbelt , Team SEA ASE began construction 7-10-10.

==== Materials for "RCEA Windbelt" ====**One possible windbelt generator design could look like a tower of windbelts connected in series to produce the necessary energy to power larger electronic devices such as laptops or stereos. This design would work in the same way as the Humdinger with the only difference being the windbelts would be stacked on top of each other in a tower, with multiple windbelts using the same coils to generate electricity. This disign is similar to Humdingers Windcell Panel, but made in our own Mexico style.

*PLANE:
**Based off of the same idea as the Plane windbelt, a Kite windbelt could be constructed. Using the energy of the wind to lift the Kite one could angle the kite and dive to the left and the right in succession making the kite drop and rize rapidly. This rapid ascent and decent would generate high wind speeds and would create a lot of flutter and hopefully a lot of energy
