Calculation of Wind power and energy
A windturbine is composed of rotor often fitted with several blades. The rotor is fixed at a nacelle installed on the top of a vertical mast. A central rotating shaft connects the major components of the drivetrain. The drivetrain includes the blades and rotor hub and a mechanical transmission that converts the angular momentum from the rotating blades into power that is transmitted to the induction generator. The nacelle also houses a yaw control motor that allows the entire nacelle and blade assembly to rotate to face into the wind for maximum power production. Blades transform kinetic energy (motion energy) of the wind in mechanical energy. The generator transform the mechanical energy in electrical energy. Most of generators turn at 1000 to 2000 rotations per minute.
