View Resource How Wind Turbines Work

Wind is a form of solar energy. Winds are caused by the uneven heating of the atmosphere by the sun, the irregularities of the earth's surface, and rotation of the earth. Wind flow patterns are...

View Resource Probabilistic fatigue methodology and wind turbine reliability

Wind turbines subjected to highly irregular loadings due to wind, gravity, and gyroscopic effects are especially vulnerable to fatugue damage. The objective of this study is to develop and illustrate...

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...
