View Resource Betz Limit: Understand the Betz Limit and How It Affects Wind Turbines

Albert Betz was a german physicist who in 1919 concluded that no wind turbine can convert more than 16/27 (59.3%) of the kinetic energy of the wind into mechanical energy turning a rotor. To this day...

View Resource Rayleigh Distribution - Wind Speed

The purpose of this page is to illustrate the use of the Rayleigh distribution to estimate the energy recovered by a medium sized wind turbine. The parameters are illustrative and it is important to...

View Resource Spatial and Temporal Distribution of U.S. Winds and Windpower at 80 m Derived from Measurements

This is a study to quantify U.S. wind power at 80 m (the hub height of large wind turbines) and to investigate whether winds from a network of farms can provide a steady and reliable source of...

View Resource Evaluation of Global Wind Power and Interconnected Wind Farms

The world wind power potential is evaluated in this study. Wind speeds are calculated at 80 m, the hub height of modern, 77-m diameter, 1500 W turbines. Since relatively few observations are...

View Resource Utility Scale Wind Energy and Sound

Virtually everything with moving parts will make some sound and wind turbines are no exception. However, well-designed utility scale wind turbines are generally quiet in operation and the sound...
