EXPERIMENT 2:

EVALUATE WIND IMPACT ON SHORT AND LONG STALK

Variables: Constant: Panel shape Length of stalk; Type of clamp; Type of supporting element; Location Manipulating: Panel materiality Responding: Panel deflection

Result: Hard material > Soft material

Criteria to be considered: Width of panel; Length of panel (away from clamp) We found out that the concept is quite similar to the experiment about the length of stalk. Panel that made up of soft material could deflect easily even the wind is weak but with hard material, it would only deflect when the wind is stronger. Nevertheless, in term of degree of deflection, panel with hard material could deflect more, which hence becomes more efficient in energy generation.
