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 or a resistor on Vernier Resistor Board 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.
Source Input Potential Range: ± 30 V
Source Input Current Range: ± 1000 mA
