Notes - Technical Issues

The following notes are taken from Wind Turbine Technology by Ahmad Hemami.
  • disadvantages of wind energy
    • low level energy not high capacity
      • requires a lot of land area
      • wind power ratings are for maximum power delivery
      • expected max power only about 1/3rd of the day
    • not continuously available
    • wind cannot be the full supplier of energy for the grid in the US but is possible in other more windy countries
      • transmission line technology in many of these countries not capable of supporting variable energy flows from wind energy
