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.

    Formula

    Wind Power = (0.5 * D * E * V * A3)

    Where,
    D - Density
    E - Energy Efficiency
    V - Wind Velocity
    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.

    Example:
    Calculate the wind power/ wind energy for the given details.
    Enter Density: 20
    Enter the Efficiency: 15
    Enter the Wind Velocity: 20
    Windmill Area: 15

    Solution:
    Apply Formula:
    Wind Power = (0.5 * D * E * V * A3)
    Wind Power: 151875000
