One of the ways Uprise Energy maximizes the performance of our portable wind turbine is by utilizing proprietary electronics to manage rotor RPM so that it follows changes in wind speed, maintaining an optimized tip-speed-ratio. This allows the machine to benefit from the exponential energy in wind gusts and is the feature we refer to as Dancing with the Wind.
Renewable energy is imperative. While no renewable source is the answer for all of our energy needs, wind energy has its attributes. Unlike the sun, wind is everywhere all the time. Wind power has become reasonably cost effective compared to other renewable forms. However, wind is not as cost effective as it should be.
The problems encountered in generating electricity from the wind and delivering the electricity to a user are numerous. This post will address the essential element of this industry, converting the kinetic energy in wind into electricity.
The area under the wind curve is critical to understanding the importance of wind machines and their ability to capture a reasonable percent of that energy.
