Instruction:

  • Select the Wind Speed using the slider, enter the Air Density, Blades Diameter, Aerodynamic Power Coefficient, Electro-Mechanical Efficiency. The software interactively calculates the Swept Area, Available Wind Power, Turbine Power Output, and Annual Power Output.

  • Enter Average Annual Electricity Consumption of the house, and software determines the number of houses that can be powered using this wind Turbine.
