Abstract
This paper investigates the use of open source hardware small wind turbines for rural electrification purposes. The technology provides the ability to locally manufacture small wind turbines, which enhances socially sustainable and technically reliable village electrification. This paper introduces the concept of open source applications , followed by a presentation of its recent development into open source hardware applications. As a specific case study, open source hardware small wind turbines are discussed further in this context, and the characteristics of the emerging social network that produces this technology are analysed. Finally, this technology is constructed and tested in the Electrical Energy Systems laboratory of the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) for validating its performance and discussing its suitability in the rural electrification context.
