Capturing the Blowing Wind For Power Generation

The estimated amount of power generated at a given point in time can be determined by wind farm operators after careful examination of the atmospheric stability. The speed at which wind is moving is directly proportional to the amount of power generated by a wind turbine. Turbines generate varying power in wind farms where the [...]
