Presentation Description

We have been harnessing the wind's energy for hundreds of years. From old Holland to farms in the United States, windmills have been used for pumping water or grinding grain. Today, the windmill's modern equivalent - a wind turbine - can use the wind's energy to generate electricity. Wind turbines, like windmills, are mounted on a tower to capture the most energy. At 100 feet (30 meters) or more aboveground, they can take advantage of the faster and less turbulent wind. Turbines catch the wind's energy with their propeller-like blades. Usually, two or three blades are mounted on a shaft to form a rotor. Hurricane Wind Power Wind Turbine Technologies LLC is custom wind generator, solar and full service renewable energy company.

About Hurricane Wind Power:

About Hurricane Wind Power We judge no one by there buying affiliations, preferences, race creed or color. This is a short explanation of my value statement as a business owner and while my grandfather is now gone the message still resonates with me. He taught me the value of doing a job right the first time which is what we attempt to do with every product we sell.

What is Wind Energy:

What is Wind Energy We have been harnessing the wind's energy for hundreds of years. From old Holland to farms in the United States, windmills have been used for pumping water or grinding grain. Today, the windmill's modern equivalent - a wind turbine - can use the wind's energy to generate electricity. Wind turbines, like windmills, are mounted on a tower to capture the most energy. At 100 feet (30 meters) or more aboveground, they can take advantage of the faster and less turbulent wind. Turbines catch the wind's energy with their propeller-like blades. Usually, two or three blades are mounted on a shaft to form a rotor.

Wind Energy is Versatile:

Wind Energy is Versatile When air moves, causing wind, it has kinetic energy the energy created whenever mass is in motion. With the right technology, the wind’s kinetic energy can be captured and converted to other forms of energy such as electricity or mechanical power. That’s wind power. Just as the earliest windmills in Persia, China and Europe used wind power to pump water or grind grain, today’s utility-connected wind turbines and multi-turbine wind farms use wind power to generate clean, renewable energy to power homes and businesses.

Wind Energy is Clean and Renewable:

Wind Energy is Clean and Renewable Wind energy should be considered an important component of any long-term energy strategy, because wind energy generation uses a natural and virtually inexhaustible source of power—the wind—to produce electricity. That is a stark contrast to traditional power plants that rely on fossil fuels. And wind energy generation is clean; it doesn’t cause air, soil or water pollution. That’s an important difference between wind energy and some other renewable energy sources, such as nuclear power, which produces a vast amount of hard-to-manage waste.

Wind Energy Equation:

Wind Energy Equation The power available to the rotor (that is, the spinning blades) of a wind generator is defined by the equation:                                                     P =1⁄2d · A · V3                    P   is the power at the rotor,                     D  is the density of the air,                    A  is the swept area of the rotor,                     V   is the speed of the wind.

Wind Features:

Wind Features Wind is nature phenomenon, has its features.  Usually, we use wind speed, wind direction, wind frequency to express wind features. 1. wind speed:  Is a term about the movement of air from one place to the next. As the wind is changeable, usually, what we said wind speed is the average value of various instantaneous wind speed in a period time, that is mean average wind speed.  Wind speed can be measured by anemoscope. Wind speed changes depend on the height. The wind speed is increased as the height increase. 2. Wind frequency: To be wind speed frequency and wind direction frequency Wind speed frequency: The frequency extent of different wind speed , wind generator operate smooth and it is easily to be control when the average wind speed is high, but the wind speed is stable. Wind direction frequency: The frequency extent of different wind direction.  To be wind generator, hope always a certain wind direction frequency to be large.

Wind Speed Unit Conversion:

Wind Speed Unit Conversion From the user, we are given a wind value and the unit to convert. To convert between miles per hour (mph) and knots (kts):         Wind kts =0.8689762×Wind mph         Wind mph =1.1507794×Wind kts To convert between miles per hour (mph) and meters per second (m/s):                 Wind m/s =0.44704×Wind mph           Wind mph =2.23694×Wind m/s To convert between miles per hour (mph) and feet per second (ft/s):         Wind ft/s =1.46667×Wind mph           Wind mph =0.681818×Wind ft/s To convert between miles per hours (mph) and kilometers per hour (km/h):         Wind km/h =1.609344×Wind mph             Wind mph =0.621371×Wind km/h To convert between knots (kts) and meters per second (m/s):         Wind m/s =0.5144444×Wind kts             Wind kts =1.9438445×Wind m/s To convert between knots (kts) and feet per second (ft/s):         Wind ft/s =1.6878099×Wind kts              Wind kts =0.5924838×Wind ft/s To convert between knots (kts) and kilometers per hour (km/h):         Wind km/h =1.852×Wind kts                 Wind kts =0.5399568×Wind km/h To convert between meters per second (m/s) and feet per second (ft/s):         Wind m/s =0.3048×Wind ft/s                 Wind ft/s =3.28084×Wind m/s To convert between meters per second (m/s) and kilometers per hour (km/h):         Wind km/h =3.6×Wind m/s                   Wind m/s =0.277778×Wind km/h To convert between feet per second (ft/s) and kilometers per hours (km/h):         Wind km/h =1.09728×Wind ft/s                Wind ft/s =0.911344×Wind km/h
