Energy & Power Energy A derivation of (one form of) Bernoulli’s derivation equation The maximum power available from a turbine The Characteristics of turbine blades Characteristics Energy & Power Energy
Power = Energy per unit time Power Energy = Power * Time Energy Electrical generation is usually given in terms Electrical of the amount of power that can be produced power We pay for the amount of energy we use! We energy Energy & Power Energy
Power: Watts (kW, MW, GW, …, BTU/h) Power: Energy = Joules (J), calories, kiloWatt hours Energy kiloWatt (kWh), British Thermal Units (BTU) Energy & Power Energy
BTU: Energy required to raise the BTU: temperature of 1 pound of water 1 degree F calorie: Energy required to raise the calorie: temperature of 1 gram of water 1 degree C joule: The work done by a 1 Newton force joule: moving through a distance of 1 meter
J=Nm watt: joule per second (W = N m/s) watt: Power from the Wind Power
The usual expression for power generated by a wind turbine is (p. 6 of Wind Energy Handbook):

Derived from Bernoulli’s Eqn Eqn We will derive Bernoulli’s equation in the We simplest case using:
Newton’s second law for an element of air Newton Quantities involved: Quantities
Wind speed u(x,t) (assumed to be “steady”) Wind u(x,t (assumed Air density ρ (assumed to be constant) Air (assumed Pressure p(x,t) Pressure p(x,t Cross sectional area A(x) Cross A(x Force, mass and acceleration Force, Maximum Power Available: Maximum
Derived from Bernoulli’s Eqn Eqn By “steady flow” we mean that the velocity By does not change in time at a particular position, but the velocity may be different at different locations. u ( x, t ) = u ( x(t )) Derivation of Bernoulli’s Eqn Derivation Eqn
Let F be the force acting on an element of air Let in a tube of cross sectional area A. Newton’s second law states that this force is the mass (m) times the acceleration (a)
