Wind Energy- From Heat To Motional Energy

Description: Wind Energy:- The Wind from heat to motional energy: Radiation from sun-Heat, Pressure gradients, Motion. Coriolis acceleration-deflection. Large scale global wind systems.Wind Power Harnessed. Wind Turbine Power:- P = 0.5 x rho x A x Cp x V3 x Ng x Nb. P=Power in watts(746 watts=1hp), rho= air density(about 1.225 kg/m3 at sea level, less higher up). A = rotor swept area, exposed to the wind (m2). Cp = Coefficient of performance (.59 {Betz limit} is the maximum theoretically possible, .35 for a good design). V = wind speed in meters/sec (20 mph = 9 m/s). Ng = generator efficiency (50% for car alternator, 80% or possibly more for a permanent magnet generator or gridconnected induction generator). Nb = gearbox/bearings efficiency (depends, could be as high as 95% if good).
