Operating Turbines in Different Wind Speeds

Previously we have looked at how the power output of a turbine depends on different factors such as wind speed and power-coefficient. Feel free to jump back if you need a refresher. Let us try to use it in practice. We will take a Siemens Gamesa 11MW Turbine as an example. As mentioned before, 1.225 […]

Energy in Wind

Let’s talk about the energy. There is energy in things that move – and wind is no different.Wind in motion contains energy that we can convert into electrical energy via turbines.Let’s look at how much energy is in wind, and how turbines can capture it. The wind cone as wind passes through the turbine When […]
