Wind power Calculator

Wind Power refers to wind generation: power derived from the wind (as by windmills). Wind power is the conversion of wind energy into a useful form, such as electricity, using wind turbines. A wind turbine is a device for converting the kinetic energy in wind into the mechanical energy of a rotating shaft.

The smallest turbines are used for applications such as battery charging or auxiliary power on sailing boats; while large grid-connected arrays of turbines are becoming an increasingly large source of commercial electric power.

A - Windmill Area

A wind turbine is a device that converts kinetic energy from the wind into mechanical energy. If the mechanical energy is used to produce electricity, the device may be called a wind generator or wind charger.
