Two 5MW offshore wind turbines were built on the DEWI-OCC test field in Cuxhaven, Germany in December 2006. A: Typically a wind turbine will produce between 5 and 8% of what they are rated for on average. Thus a 5 MWh plant should be able to produce 100,000 KWh each hour they are running. Most cur…rently built systems are rated for 1 MWh in the United States so they typically will produce about 20,000 KWh of actual power. Wind systems are rated for average winds of 28 mph. If the average wind is 14 mph, they produce 10% of rated. If wind goes over 31 mph they produce no power and can consume energy to slow the blades. Feathering of blades does asist on reducing these issues, but doesn't eliminate them. A: A wind turbine in optimal winds generates its plate capacity. For example, a typical 3 MW wind turbine will generate 3 MW of electricity. An outdated but still moderately useful rule-of-thumb was that a megawatt would power a thousand homes; consumption is higher now so it's a little less than that, but still, a single 3 megawatt wind turbine will provide power in optimal winds to power close to 3000 homes. Winds vary, however. A typical jurisdiction will see 30% on average of the plate capacity over the course of a year. Some jurisdictions, such as north-eastern Brazil, have excellent winds and see capacity factors of 50%. Wind turbines are very economically viable at 30% capacity factors and become more profitable at higher factors. Except in very low or very high winds, wind turbines will usually be generating some electricity. They aren't just on or off. These factors are taken into account by grid managers when planning and managing new generation, new transmission and operating the grid. Most industrial wind turbines do take about their faceplate capacity from the grid for a few minutes at startup to get the rotors moving. This is trivial in comparison to hours, days or even weeks of continuous generation. In addition, as one wind turbine in a farm comes on line, it provides power to the very local grid to be used by the other wind turbines; the wind farm will typically boot itself up with significantly less than the number of wind turbines times the faceplate capacity from other sources. A: Every wind turbine has a range of wind speeds, typically 30 to 55 mph, in which it will produce at its rated, or maximum, capacity. If the wind is in the ideal range for a 1.5-MW wind turbine, it will produce power at the rate of 1.5 MW, its rated, or maximum, capacity. At slower wind speeds, however, the production falls off dramatically. Industry estimates project an annual output of 30-40%, but real-world experience shows that annual outputs of 15-30% of capacity are typical. (MORE)

This depends on the size of the turbine and the wind resource. A single 1MW turbine operating at a 45% production rate will generate about 3.9 million kW of electricity in a year. This would be enough to meet the needs of about 500 households per year. The world's largest turbine, the Enercon E-1…26 has a rated capacity of 7.58 MW have been constructed at Emden, in Germany in 2007. Several companies are developing 10 MW turbines. A: Once you take away the wasted fossil fuel for plants on standby, the cost of maintenance and the inefficiencies associated with the wind turbines of today you end up with about 5% of rated power. Even when running they average 8% of rating. A 1 million watt system will typically generate about 80,000 watts of power each hour. This is further offset when you add into the equation that a power plant is running in the background to supply the backup power as wind velocities change. This is further offset when you add into the equation that a power plant is running in the background to supply the backup power as wind velocities change. Units range in size from 400 watts to a 5 megawatt system. As systems increase in size they reduce efficiency and kill more birds and bats (Massachusetts loses 100K birds a year to wind systems), Once everything is added up they produce less power then it takes to build a unit. A: The World Wind Energy Association, an industry organization, reported that in 2010, wind power had the capacity to generate 430 TWh annually. This is about 2.5% of total energy generated worldwide. (430 Terawatts is 430 million million kilowatt hours: 430,000,000,000,000 kWh) (MORE)
one wind turbine can produce enough energy to power 10000 houses with the right amount of wind.
The rotor is driven round by the wind and this drives a generator which is mounted behind the rotor and connected by a shaft. The electrical energy is then transmitted down the support column and distributed to the outside world.
5000kw/h if the wind is exactly 28 mph. 0 kw/h if wind goes above 28 mph 500 kw/h at 14 mph 0 kw/h at 11 mph The typical system averages about 8% of rated power. They produce less power in their projected life then the cost to create. They also kill millions of birds and bats each year.
A typical wind system is rated at 1.5 Mwh systems (such as the G.E. and Vestas systems widely used today) These are rated for 28 mph winds. Averages are closer to a 14 to 15 mph average wind. That gives us an actual output of 150 Khw of power. 150Kwh of hourly power still gives us 3.6 Mwh of daily p…ower or 1314 Mwh of power annually (assuming 100% uptime) The average home consumes 3 kwh of power hourly or 72 Khw of power daily. This means, in real terms that an average wind generator can power roughly 50 average American homes. The past two years have seen major reductions in home power consumption. Hopefully that trend will continue. (MORE)
\nEnergy that is generated by wind turbines, which are towers that have large propellors that are turned by the movement of the wind and turn an electric generator.
Once you take away the wasted fossil fuel for plants on standby, the cost of maintenance and the inefficiencies associated with the wind turbines of today you end up with about 5% of rated power. Even when running they average 8% of rating. A 1 million watt system will typically generate about 80…,000 watts of power each hour. This is further offset when you add into the equation that a power plant is running in the background to supply the backup power as wind velocities change. Once everything is added up they produce less power then it takes to build a unit. This depends how large the wind turbine is and how windy the area is. Large wind turbines generate between 700kilowatts and 1.8 megawatts per hour, depending on how much wind there is at the time. (MORE)
With a 25% capacity factor, a 1.5-MW turbine would produce 9 kWh in one day.
The main shaft which is spun by the turbines rotates magnets inside of a coil of copper wire. This makes electricity.
The wind farmers usually want to spread them out so the propellers do not collide. They also want to spread the turbines out so that they can catch the wind wherever it is.
It depends on time and location.\n. \nIf you place your windmill on top of a hill, it will be the most efficient. \nBut as for your question, its down to the matter of time. How long is the windmill going to be running for?\n. \nIf 2000Kw where used to produce a windmill.. and the windmill produce…d 1000Kw a year, it would make its effiency in 2 years. This is called pay back time!\n. \nHope this helps!! (MORE)
The energy in the moving mass of air is converted to rotationalenergy of the turbine, by the blades. This energy in turn isconverted to electrical power, by a dynamo.
\nfirstly let me tell you that a wind turbine contains a generator, a shaft attached to it, some blades, etc.\nthe moving air moves the blades giving it its kinetic energy and rotational energy is given by it to the the shaft. this shaft rotates the generator and this energy is converted into electr…icity.\n\nhope you have got the correct and desired answer.\nkeep questioning........!!!\n (MORE)
About four hundred-trillion-trillion ergs. Most of those ergs are converted into the parts (fan blades, generator, pivot, tower, etc.) . The balance is utilized in the assembly of the parts into the finished wind generator.
A large wind mill generates more energy compared to the smaller sized wind mill as it can capture more wind energy i.e.its Plant load factor/Capacity factor is higher.
How many electrical kw would a wind turbine need to generate to supply a 3 bedroom all electrical one story house?
The supply charartertics in most domestic properties in UK provides aroung 60 to 80 amps therefore allowing 14 to 18 KW of energy to be used .

There are (of course) different types of turbines.

A wind turbine is not designed to generate wind, it uses wind and generates electricity.
//Grammar?// I don't understand the question due to the order of the words. try to rephrase!
They don't really save energy, per se. They capture wind energy, which is considered a renewable resource. This reduces the need to burn fossil fuel to satisfy the same energy needs, and arguably results in lower greenhouse gas emissions.
Wind Turbines are capable of creating very small amounts of energy on windy days. The best case they create about 8% of what they are rated at. Fossil fuels plants are ran at almost idle to supplement the missing power.
Approximately 60,000 kwh @ annual average wind speed of 5 m/s Approximately 115,000 kwh @ annual average wind speed of 6 m/s Approximately 225,000 kwh @ annual average wind speed of 7 m/s
This varies based on the configuration of a particular turbine, as they range is size and scale, and the wind density at a particular location. Typical turbines vary in output from a few watts to megawatts.
Although wind energy is the perfect alternative fuel source, it can be very expensive. The cost to build a wind turbine can be around $150,000 to $200,000 - about the cost of the average house. This high start-up price can bankrupt the average civilian, which is why only the wealthy can afford it, b…ut only by investing and carefully budgeting their money wisely. Despite the initial start-up price, the amount of electricity it produces is phenomenal - 5000 kilowatts per hour. Although this statistic only applies to windy areas that have a minimum wind speed of about 25 miles per hour, the money saved from spending less on electricity bills saves people money in the long run. Wind turbines can also kill or injure birds and bats. (MORE)
Law of physics . . . energy cannot be made, and for that matter, cannot be destroyed. The only thing that you can really do with energy is to change it into a different form. So, wind generators turn energy in the wind into energy in the form of electricity and a bit of heat. Power output is how wi…nd generators are measured. Power size gives us an idea of how much work can be done by the electrical energy that wind generator put out. Wind generators come in many sizes (of power), from 'backyard' to huge wind farm sizes.

No way to answer. It will depend on the number and size of the turbines, and the tidal forces in the area where they are located.
It does NOT "produce" energy. That would break a fundamental law of physics! It converts some mechanical energy from the wind into electrical energy. The turbine is connected by speed-increasing gears to an alternator whose output is fed via a suitable control system into the grid or, at a small, p…urely local scale, the building(s) using it.

If it is a typical 300-kW windmill and the wind is right it willgenerate 300 x 24 kilowatt-hours per day, that is 7.2 MWh whichwill prevent 7-8 tons of CO 2 entering the atmospherefrom a fossil-fuel power plant somewhere near.
The wind turbine power is measured in kW - this means the rate at which it produces renewable energy. If you measure the amount of energy produced by the wind turbine in a given time e.g. in a day, you would do so in kWh (kW hours). So if the turbine ran at rated power (2kW) for 24 hours, then it wo…uld produce 2kW x 24h = 48kWh of energy. (MORE)
One wind turbine consumes about 20 square meters of land at its base. There are sometimes gravel roads that lead to them from the nearest road, usually 2-3 meters wide and 10-50 meters long, to allow maintenance trucks to get to them. Calling it 120 square meters per wind turbine of actual land take…n out of use isn't far off. That's about a tenth of a hectare or a quarter of an acre. The rest of the land is still useful for whatever it was being used for before, whether that was farming, hiking, growing weeds, snowmobiling, grouse hunting or just sitting there unused. As a wind turbine will generally bring in a lease value of $5000 - $8000 per year to the owner of the land, and as that is higher than most crops will yield per acre per year, it's an excellent additional revenue stream, especially for the multi-revenue stream, small-business owners we call farmers. As wind turbines are spaced 6-10 blade diameters apart, a gigawatt of power generation would be spread over about about 518 square kilometres, or about 200 square miles. It would take up about 0.01% of that land. If it were all compressed together, it would be about the size of a nuclear plant. There's a US land use requirements reference at the link referenced.

First you must consider the power rating of the wind turbine. If we assume a nominal rating of 1MW then we must calculate the energy it would produce in a year. The capacity factor for wind power is 30%, this is a factor which takes into account that wind doesn't blow all the time (obtained as the r…atio of actual energy produced by a wind turbine to the hypothetical energy it should produce if it produced constantly at its rated power throughout the year). Therefore the energy would be = 1000 kW * 24 (hours a day) * 365 (days a year) * 0.3 (Capacity factor) = 2628000 kWh (per annum) If we assume that an average household uses 7000 kWh of energy a year then this particular turbine will power = 2628000/7000 = 375.4 homes. (Turbine rating, capacity factor and average household energy consumption may all vary and have been selected for the purpose of this example) (MORE)
Enough to light 350 homes if the wind is at exactly 28 mph all day If the wind reduces to 14 mph that number drops to 35 homes If the wind drops to 13 mph that number is 20 homes Fossil fuel plants run at 100% at all times to make up for these variables.
Just like power plants. Each Wind Turbine has a generator. The generator has a magnet with a type of wires wrapped the are in a spiral tube. The Magnet is on a axle, the axle spins from the wind moving the wind turbine. The Magnet spins inside the wires and in generates electricity. The power then g…os to a base where it provides energy to where ever it is needed. (MORE)
Wind turbines come as small as 100 watt units and as large as 5 Megawatt units. A typical system will have a normal output of about 8% of what it is rated for.
A 1.5 MW turbine is 80ms in height. A 3MW turbine is 90m in height. The world's largest-capacity turbine, the Enercon (7.58MW) is 198m in height.
The World Wind Energy Association, an industry organization reported that in 2010, wind power had the capacity to generate 430 TWh annually. This is about 2.5% of total energy generated worldwide. (430 Terawatts is 430 million million kilowatt hours: 430,000,000,000,000 kWh) Same amount …as in any other unit of time. What electrical energy generators output is electrical energy. Thus, wind turbines, or rather wind turbine generators (WTG) connected to the wind turbines, provide electrical energy. They are rated by their ability to create that energy, i.e., by the amount of energy output within a period of time. This is termed "power". If the WTG ranked 1 MW (MegaWatt) cranks out energy for one hour (all the time with the same power) it outputs 1 MWh (Megawatthour). In simpler, math terms, the energy generated equals to integral of power over time period. (MORE)
First, the turbine itself does not store the energy. One needs a battery or capacitor for that. The amount of energy a turbine produces is determined by the size of the turbine and the speed of the blades, and the average RPMs in a given day. Short answer: it depends. It is best to couple the turbin…e as a backup for a solar array for times when the sun is not sufficient to power the cells, on the theory that when the sun is not shining during the day, the wind might be blowing because of a storm.

it takes about half a turkey slap, when you use your dick to slap someone which creates enough amount of energy to create a wind burn
Depends on the size of the wind mill (wind turbine) and how hard the wind blows. From the RenewableUK website FAQ: "One 1.8 MW wind turbine at a reasonable site would produce over 4,700 000 kWh of electricity each year, enough to meet the annual needs of over 1,000 households."...
The larger blades (an 83 meter blade was just sent to testing in Germany) probably costs upwards of 200,000Â£
One can learn how to make a wind turbine online. The best way to go about it, however, is to ask an expert's opinion and follow their advice -- for example, an expert may point you to the wind turbine schematics that they consider the safest or the easiest for an amateur to build.
A typical nuclear plant can run continously at 600 MW, which 6 x 10 8 Joules per second or, per day, 5.184 x 10 13 Joules.
The initial cost of wind turbines is high, and the installation of not a simple task. However, for those interested in attempting the task themselves, a good resource is the web domain "PRLog."
Wind turbine generators are used to convert the kinetic (movement) energy of the wind directly into electrical energy, which is used to power electrical appliances and needs no further conversion.
