Wind Energy

A natural, replenishable, and very clean form of energy gifted to us by Nature, 'Wind Energy' comes with huge benefits. It is a very adaptive form of useful energy that can be put to various uses. The same wind can help producing electricity for daily consumption, mechanical power for running machines, sailing power for sending forth and propelling ships, and pumping power for water pumping and drainage functions. Generated in large wind farms, which have a number of windmills, Wind Power has the ability of producing huge quantities of this safe & intangible fuel.

Wind power is a boon that supplements the harmful fossil fuels. It is better than the latter due to various attributes: wind power gives us clean energy which can be produced in minimum space using minimum resources and also does not emit any greenhouse gases. Now, who is not aware of the poisonous and derogatory effects of these gases? Greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide and Methane raise the earth's temperature gradually posing the threat of Global Warming. So, it is in all rights the most sensible thing to embrace the Wind Power, owing to its cheap acquisition and multipurpose usage. Wind farms have wind turbines which are the tools that enable the production of the related fuel. Wind turbines are of two types. HAWT (Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines) and VAWT (Vertical Axis Wind Turbines). The Wind Grid Integration is the research and estimation method which determines in advance the near future disturbances; the research and findings have made the handling of these possible, turning the situation in favour thus making use if the changing winds.

Wind power was first utilized in Persia, then moving onto Europe & US. US generated wind energy abundantly. Today these power plants are also found in plenty in India. India, though started late, picked up pretty fast and today it has also at an instance, exported turbines to Australia.

We know that solar radiation creates certain differences in air pressure on land that make the winds blow. There are different types of winds that have been recognised: Planetary Circulations, Geotropic Winds, Gradient Winds, Thermal Winds, Topographic Winds, Land & Sea Breeze, Gusts, Nocturnal Jets and more (Wind Energy Basics). This free of cost resource is used with the help of spatial scales and the wind turbines designed accordingly, for conversion to usable and recyclable fuel. There is much development, research, study and work in this field; we must take full benefits of these.
