This video shows pico class wind turbine at Cijeruk, Bogor, West Java, Indonesia.
The wind is not very strong, as seen on video, bamboo tree branches and leafs are moving slowly.

Turbine diameter is 1.3 meters. Maximum power achieved is about 20 watts but occurs only for a  few minutes, average power is around 4 watts. Average wind speed for Bogor area is around 10 kmh.


Unfortunately the wind is blowing from North to South and it is blocked by some dense bamboo trees. As shown below on Google maps, GPS coordinates s6.7283  e106.7958 , turbine location is shown as green arrow. There are bamboo trees at North and paddy fields at South. It could be better if wind blows from South to North, some local people say it is usually happen from April to October when summer. Altitude is about 500 meters above sea level.



All electronic components such as: diode bridge, fuse, filters and voltage regulator are put together in a box as below photograph.



Turbine and electronic will cost less than US$100 with all new components, without pole. It could be a solution for fishermen, farmer, or other people in very remote areaAnother video:
