At a certain location wind is blowing steadily at

By Allen Kazadi

At a certain location, wind is blowing steadily at 18 m/s. Determine the mechanical energy of air per unit mass and the power generation potential of a wind turbine with 80-m-diameter blades at that location. Also, determine the actual electric power generation, assuming an overall efficiency of 30 percent. Take the air density to be 1.25 kg/m3.

Answer:

e_{mec}=162J/kg

P_{potential}=18312480W=18312.5kW

P_{actual}=5493.7kW
