Lectures | 11-14 and upwards | 12 years ago | 1161 views
Rating:

Converting wind power into electricity seems like an ideal way of helping to solve our energy problems. However, the power generated by a windmill is dependent on the wind speed. If the wind drops to half its speed there is as little as an 1/8th of t....
