Publisher: NISCAIR-CSIR, India
Abstract: Realising the continuous exploitation and loss of natural energy resources, a study on extraction of energy from wind has been presented. The calculations of wind speed and the energy present in wind in India, are presented. The variation of wind velocity with respect to altitude is briefly described. Some data related to wind power in India are presented. The relation between the Solidity Ratio and Blade Tip Speed has been highlighted. The advantages and limitations of wind power generation are described. It is concluded that wind energy can play an important role towards the upliftment of rural areas.
