    1. Introduction

    Interest in small scale wind energy production has increased due to

    raising awareness of environmental issues and the growing acceptanceof wind power as an effective energy source. On the large scale, wind

    farms in South Australia produce 16% (!"#$ of the state&s total

    power generation, and in the future it is predicted that this contri'ution

    will eceed )"""#$ (Australia $ind *nergy Association )"".

    $ind energy is has 'een shown to 'e the cheapest form of renewa'le

    energy, 'ut despite this there has 'een minimal usage of small,

    household wind tur'ines to reduce one&s reliance on grid electricity,

    which still comes predominately from the 'urning of fossil fuels. A

    growing num'er of companies are producing small scale wind tur'ines

    for household use, however most of these are 'ased on a +oriontal-aisdesign and there is little comparison on how +oriontal-ais tur'ines

    will compare to +oriontal-ais wind tur'ines for small scale use in an

    ur'an environment, which may include non-optimal wind conditions.

    How Is Electricity from Wind Energy

    Sent to Users?

  • 8/12/2019 Report Experiment Design Final


    /he electricity is sent to users through a transmission system that consists of

    electric towers, and other components. One challenge for transmission of

    electricity from wind energy is that the wind is intermittent (it comes and goes.

    $inds cannot 'e stored for future use. Small amounts of wind-generated

    electricity can 'e stored using 'atteries0 however, intermittency does create

    concerns for the sta'ility and relia'ility of 3ti+it68s/+e -in1 energ6 generti,n.

    /he integration of wind energy into a transmission system reuires careful

    engineering to properly condition the power generated, and careful planning to

    'alance the mi of wind energy with other sources of energy generation.

    $hat is a wind tur'ine

    A wind turbineis a device that converts 4ineti/ energ6from the wind

    into me/)ni/+ energ60 a process 4nown as-in1 p,-er. If themechanical energy is used to produce electricity, the device may 'ecalled a wind generatoror wind charger. If the mechanical energy is

    used to drive machinery, such as for grinding grain or pumping water,

    the device is called a-in1mi++,r -in1 p3mp.

    Thereare two types of wind turbines:

    1.The horizontal- axis wind turbine.
