Hi Ross,

Why don't you start a discussion with this theme?

Hi to all. Could those members who hold patents or own successful wind power devices, or even unsuccessful ones, please give us all a look at them, with an accompanying "story so far". We would all like to celebrate your success or learn from your endeavours. Thanks.

Hi Everyone,

i am the fourth year student at Aerospace Engineering Department in METU, and i worked in a Horizontal Wind Turbine Design Project. In this project, my duty is the structural optimization of the blade. I have made some literature research for this duty but i cannot decide to the type of algorithm which will be used in the project. Is there anybody can give an advise for the algorithm in such project. Thanks...

Mustafa Kaplan.

Hi guys

a bit quiet on the site, however I have a question.

How did the "half" bit work its way into the equation for wind power extraction potential?

That is: 1/2 * ρ * A * W

Where A is area, W is wind velocity, p is air density etc?


Curiously yours
