To do that responsibly, it is important to understand wind characteristics, especially its variable nature. Equally important, however, is an understanding of site and operational issues that affect the ultimate, bottom-line net usable energy production from a wind turbine installation. Wind Characteristics When it comes to generating electricity, the single most important characteristic […]
