What is wind power?
On a planet with an increasing population and finite fossil fuels, the need for alternative energy sources increases. Wind energy is one such source. Wind turbines use this natural resource to generate electricity.
There are many benefits to the use of wind energy. Wind is a renewable energy resource and there are no fuel costs. No harmful polluting gases are produced. Once the wind turbine is built the energy it produces does not cause green house gases or other pollutants. Remote areas that are not connected to the electricity power grid can use wind turbines to produce their own supply.
However, the amount of electricity generated depends on the strength of the wind – if there is no wind, there is no electricity. Also large wind farms are needed to provide entire communities with enough electricity. For example, the largest single turbine available today can only provide enough electricity for 475 homes, when running at full capacity.
How a turbine work?
Wind turbines are quite simple in design. There are the propellers, a shaft and a generator. The propellers catch the wind and help rotate the shaft. The turning of the shaft helps to power the generator and create electricity.
Although wind turbine technology has improved efficiency since they became a serious source alternative energy, the amount of electricity produced by a wind turbine (measured in kilowatts – kw) requires a minimum wind speed (measured in meteres per second – m/s), and will not produce any additional electricity once a peak wind speed has been reached.
As can be seen by the graph, the turbines used in this simulation simulation start producing electricity at approximately 3 m/s, and reach their maximum output at approximately 14 m/s. You will be able to observe this effect by altering the settings of the wind speed parameter when you configure the simulation.
