    Abstract: Most developing nations of the world are looking towards renewable energy sources as a sustainable option. Among all the energy sources, the one that is matured to the level of connecting it to the grid (either distribution or transmission) is wind energy. As wind energy is increasingly integrated into power systems in some countries of the world, ... Show More

    Abstract: The amount of power in the wind is very dependent on the speed of the wind. Because the power in the wind is proportional to the cube of the wind speed, small differences in the wind speed make a big difference in the power you can make from it. A 10% difference in speed makes about a 33% change in power. This gives rise to the primary reason for w... Show More
