A windmill with rotor diameter of 30 m takes 40% of the kinetic energy out as shaft work on a day with 20oC and wind speed of 30 km/h. What power is produced?
A windmill takes a fraction of the wind kinetic energy out as power on a shaft. In what manner does the temperature and wind velocity influence the power? Hint: write the power as mass flow rate times specific work.
A wind turbine is rotating at 15 rpm under steady winds flowing through the turbine at a rate of 42,000 kg/s. The tip velocity of the turbine blade is measured to be 250 km/h. If 180 kW power is produced by the turbine, determine, (a) The average velocity of the air and, (b) The conversion efficiency of the turbine. Take the density of air to be 1.31 kg/m3.
