  • Wind Turbines Essay

    Wind turbines, both single and arrayed, are installed in areas located onshore, near-shore, offshore and in urban areas where they are integrated with buildings. Onshore and offshore wind power industry is growing fast (Oh et al., 2013; Barthelmie et al. 2009; Lozano-Minguez et al., 2011; Hameed et al., 2011). Due to their enormous size and due to the fact that wind turbines may be subjected to extreme wind conditions during their lifetime, it is imperative that proper assessment of wind load should be carried. Verheij (1988) had developed a Gust Model for the design of large wind turbines and explained the various wind loads and their causes. Saranyasoontorn et al. (2004) investigated the influence of turbulence conditions on the design loads…

  • Wind Turbines Essay

    With so much emphasis on investing into alternative energies, it’s worth taking a look at the financial feasibility of them. Can wind energy compete with oil in terms of profit? How much electricity do wind turbines produce and how much do they cost to produce it? How do wind turbines work? Electricity from wind turbines is produced when wind turbine blades are pushed by the wind. The moving blades are connected to a generator and when moved, the generator creates electricity. The electricity is…

  • The Importance Of Offshore Wind Energy

    Introduction: Renewable technologies are our future. Limited resources such as oil and coal are only a stepping stone to get us to clean and sustainable technologies like photovoltaic, oceanic, geothermal, and wind electrical generators. For the past decade, the United States has been investing in many inland wind farms which are located in Class 3 areas. Wind speeds are categorized by classes, and Class 3 is the minimum before a wind farm is not worth the installation costs; Class 1 being far…

  • The Importance Of Wind Power In South Dakota

    B. Wind Energy 1. Introduction South Dakota has enormous potential for wind energy development. Due to the fact that South Dakota with it great plains are an ideal site for wind farms since the plains have smooth hill tops that can catch prevailing winds. This is why South Dakota ranks sixth in the United States for potential in generating more electricity from wind. As of today South Dakota produces 26 percent of their electricity from wind. We have the potential to double this amount if…
