The Vernier Energy Sensor offers an easy way to quantify voltage, current, power, and energy output of small wind turbines and solar panels such as those used in our KidWind Experiment Kits.
Setting up a circuit to study renewable energy systems such as wind turbines or solar panels is easy with the Vernier Energy Sensor. Simply connect a source such as a small wind turbine or solar panel to one side and a load such as the Variable Load (VES-VL) or a resistor on Vernier Resistor Board (VES-RB) to the other side.
The Energy Sensor measures the current and voltage of the system. Data-collection and analysis software, such as Logger Pro or LabQuest App can then calculate the power and energy output.
