What is a Wind Energy & how is Wind created?

What is Wind?

Wind turbine generators function on a basic principle, instead of using electricity to make wind, similar to fans, wind turbines turn wind into electricity. Wind’s kinetic energy turns the blades of a turbine around a rotor, which again spins a generator, which creates electricity. Wind is actually a form of solar energy caused by a […]

What is BETZ limit for Wind Turbine Efficiency?

Betz Limit or Betz Law is the theoretical maximum efficiency for a wind turbine, that is 59.3%.

The Betz limit is the theoretical maximum efficiency for a wind turbine, calculated by German physicist Albert Betz back in 1919 [1]. Betz calculations showed that this value is 59.3%, which allowing at most only 59.3% of the wind kinetic energy to spin the turbine and generate electricity. In reality, turbines cannot reach the Betz […]

What is wind class in wind turbine?

Wind Class of a wind turbine (WTG) tells you what kind of turbine fits the “normal wind conditions” in a specific location.

Wondering what a wind turbine Wind Class is? Well here you should be able to find a quick answer. This WTG (Wind Turbine Gnerator) classification tells you what kind of turbine fits the “normal wind conditions” in the location that you are planning to install the wind turbine / have a Wind Park. Studying the […]
