    “A wind turbine is a machine for converting the kinetic energy in wind into mechanical energy”. (1) The inventor of the first electric wind turbine was Clevelander Charles Brush, who ran his entire Euclid Avenue mansion off of one for 20 years, which later made the cover of Scientific American in 1888. (2) Although the use of alternate energy didn't rise a great deal afterwards, this event did open the eyes for many environmentalists. Wind power is only one of our several “energy source[s] whose

    The Answer Is Blowing in the Wind Wind energy is a term used to describe the process by which the wind is used to generate electricity or mechanical power. This alternative energy source is not a new technology. Wind mills, similar to wind turbines, have been in use since 2000 B.C. and were first developed in China and Persia. Now with the increasing demand for renewable power, wind turbines or wind generators are beginning to be seen scattered over the countryside. Wind power is believed to be a practical

    of renewable energy sources such as wind power is very important. Wind & Wind Turbines Wind is formed from the heating and cooling of the atmosphere, which causes air and air layers to rise, fall and move over each other. This movement results in wind currents. The kinetic energy of wind can be transformed into electrical energy through the use of wind turbines. There are two main types of wind turbines, horizontal and vertical axis. Vertical axis wind turbines (VAWT) have blades which are connected

    generation is wind energy, wind power, or also known as a wind turbine. What is Wind Energy? Wind is air in motion, and is caused by the uneven heating of the Earth’s surface by the sun (“Wind”). Because of this, wind energy has less impact on the environment then other energy sources. Therefore, wind can produce electricity through a turbine or windmill. A wind turbine is a device that converts kinetic energy from the wind into electrical power. (“Wind Turbine”) In order for a wind turbine to work

    certain proximity to wind turbines and wind farms. Over the past several decades, there has been a resurgence in wind power. This technology is a clean renewable energy source that does not contribute to global warming nor does it create any harmful wastes. As communities look to identify safe renewable energy sources many have turned to wind power; inspired by the numerous benefits and perceived benign risks many have attempted to harness wind power through wind turbines and wind farms. As the Sun

    study conducted to improve the working of wind turbines. Some of these researches have been implemented practically while others are still in experimental phase. A literature was prepared by Md. Mahfouz Sarwar, Nazia Nawshin, Muhammad Ali Imam and Mohammad Mashudon on “A new approach to improve the performance of an existing small wind turbine by using Diffuser.” They have studied the improved effect of diffuser on the performance of a small wind turbine system. They have analyzed two hollow structures:
