some are more than 500 feet

Decreasing the blade length will increase the rotation speed, and thus the turbine speed ( for constant wind speed ).

wind pushes on the blades of the wind turbine which pass on this motion to the generator to produce electricity. The energy and the speed of a wind turbine depend on the blade pitch control which depends on the angel of the blade chord to the plane of rotation. The blade pitch determines the speed of the turbine which also depends on the wind speed. Energy is directly proportional to the speed of the turbine. Therefore, the energy produced by a turbine depends on both the wind speed and the blade pitch angle. By: Amin Elsersawi

nothing wind turbines make the energy

Stall control when related to wind turbines is actually the angle of the turbine blade. This angle is adjusted with the direction and speed of the wind.รŠ

Definitely not. Not even the tip of the blade.

Wind turbines blades are about 15 meters long (average wind turbine) The thickness of the blade depends on the length of the blade. The width is about 10% of the length, in this case, would be about 1.5 meters thick.

Wind turbine blades comes in different sizes. In, New York, a blade broke off a wind mill that was 400 feet tall. The blade was 150 feet long. In 2012, Siemens introduced turbine blades that are 246 feet long.

. Wind energy is the energy taken from the wind that makes the rotor blade of the wind turbine to rotate, so that an alternator coupled to it can generate electricity. Wind turbine is a huge apparatus designed to transform wind energy into electricity.

The answer depends on the size of the turbine and also whether it has a horizontal or vertical axis.

it is definitely a function of chord length and blade radius

Wind turbine vary enormously in size from a small turbine on a boat with blades about two feet in diameter to large industrial 'wind farms' the blades of which are individually dozens of feet long

Of course new generation wind turbine has to face wind.The concept of wind turbine is this that wind has kinetic energy, and this energy is converted by WTG by rotary blade into mechanical energy through gear box then again into electrical energy through generator. Here mainly wind is the main criteria, which rotates blade in variable speed depends upon wind density. More density and wind speeed more power will be generated. Besides this there are many versions of wind turbine, Upwind means new generation wind turbine normally we observed, In Down wind turbines turbines has no relation with wind perpendicular to wind. I think you must have got the answer.

Wind Turbines can vary in cost by size. You can get a small wind turbine for around $500.00. A large one can cost around $2000.00.

There are a few things on the backs of Wind Turbines: 1) Anemometers - wind speed sensors that help the turbine fine tune its blade pitch to be most efficient. 2) Wind Vanes - wind direction sensors that keep the turbine lined up with the wind, or turn it away from the wind when the gusts are too strong and can damage the turbine. 3) Visibility Lighting - red and white lights to meet requirements of aviation authorities for visibility.

The larger blades (an 83 meter blade was just sent to testing in Germany) probably costs upwards of 200,000ยฃ

A wind turbine makes wind for scientific study.

A wind turbine is 134 feet tall

A wind turbine is used to generate electricity.

a wind turbine generates electricity for or use

A wind turbine is like a giant fan that produces energy from the wind

Wind makes the turbine move and the wind makes elctrecity.

wind is not created by the turbine but wind that passes through the turbine causes it to turn, and the faster the turbine spins the more energy is created that can be turned into electricity and other resources. Hope This Helps :)

The cost for setting up a wind turbine for a small home range from $10,000 to $70,000. This will depend on the size, distance and system used.

I'm sure they are proprietary, but based on something like inconel. Oh, just saw this was under WIND power. I was thinking gas or steam turbine. Wind turbine blades are generally composites. Fiberglass/epoxy or carbon fiber/epoxy layups, like airplane propellers.
