The Honeywell Wind Turbine is in the class of small residential wind turbines designed for home rooftop installation. It has a gearless Blade Tip Power System (BTPS) that gives it the ability to generate energy in as little as 2 mph wind speed, making it a good wind turbine for slow wind areas.
Utilizing Wind Energy as a Natural and Renewable Resource
Wind is produced by the effects of the heating and cooling patterns of Earth’s surface. The Sun is ultimately responsible for climate but we can also harness the wind’s energy as is flows across the land. Wind energy can be collected by wind turbines which spin as wind flows across their blades. This mechanical motion can be transferred into electrical energy and be stored in a battery for later use. The use of large wind farms to generate power doesn’t account for much of the planet’s total energy output, but the field has been growing rapidly the past few years thanks to higher oil prices. Wind turbines have become cheaper to produce and more efficient which also help fuel wind energy’s rapid growth.
Erecting a windmill in your backyard will not ensure a continuous supply of green energy. The efficiency of a windmill depends on several factors that need to be adjusted for a high efficiency windmill.
In a stroke of genius, innovators have come up with designs to power our country by exploiting the traffic on our nations highways. Will these fresh new ideas change the landscape of American electricity production?
The electric generator connected to the wind turbine is different from electric generators in the conventional power plant. Why is it different? What are the differences? What are the types of generators used? For a brief explanation read this article.
