Swept Area and Rated Power The power output of a wind turbine is directly related to the area swept by the blades. The larger the diameter of its blades, the more power it is capable of extracting from the wind. Rotor Diameter – This number is listed on most wind turbine spec sheets. It is simply … Continue reading Calculate the Sweep Area of Turbine Blades.

History … Continue reading Extent of Forest District Land in L’Anse Township.
U.S. Geological Survey, Forest and Rangeland Ecosystem Science Center Overview As with many land uses, trade-offs exist between costs and benefits. New wind developments are occurring rapidly in parts of the United States, often leaving little time for evaluation of potential site-specific effects. These developments are known to affect wildlife, directly from fatality due to collision … Continue reading U.S. Geological Survey, Forest and Rangeland Ecosystem Science Center
