French Firm Creates Water From Air
2012-05-01 06:55:31

It sounds impossible, but a French engineering firm has created a wind turbine that pulls water from the air and serves it up to thirsty communities and villages. The firm, Eole Water, modified wind turbines to give them the ability to draw water from the air in humid climates, distilling it and making it safe to drink. These water-creating turbines are a part of a bid to help developing countries solve their water needs. Eole Water already has a working prototype in Abu Dhabi which...

Depending on the weather, wind turbines can face whispering breezes or gale-force gusts. Such variable conditions make extracting the maximum power from the turbines a tricky control problem, but a collaboration of Chinese researchers may have found a novel solution in human-inspired learning models. Most turbines are designed to produce maximum allowable power once winds reach a certain speed, called the rated speed. In winds above or below the rated speed, control systems can make...

Image 1 - Power Generation Is Blowing In The Wind
2012-01-18 05:21:30

By looking at the stability of the atmosphere, wind farm operators could gain greater insight into the amount of power generated at any given time. Power generated by a wind turbine largely depends on the wind speed. In a wind farm in which the turbines experience the same wind speeds but different shapes, such as turbulence, to the wind profile, a turbine will produce different amounts of power. This variable power can be predicted by looking at atmospheric stability, according to...
