This paper describes the design and implementation of an experimental system that estimates the electric power that can be produced by the angular motion showing the fundamental principles of mechanical-into-electrical energy conversion, which are the operation main basis of electromechanical devices such as wind turbines. Some theoretical concepts related with curricular subjects such as Electric mchenary, Physics, Renewable Energies, Power Electronics and Microcontrollers, were verified by Science students that participated in this project achievement. The main aim of this work is to show a simplified system development for didactic applications that can be mounted at indoor conditions and can be constructed from a set of basic and cheap electrical components.
