- ... In order to obtain maximum power output of a Wind Energy Conversion System (WECS), the rotor speed needs to be optimised for a particular wind speed. However, due to inherent inertia, the rotor of a WECS cannot react instantaneously according to wind speed variations. As a consequence, the performance of the system and consequently the wind energy conversion capability of the rotor are negatively ...

- ... National targets for increased renewable energy are common-place internationally and small/micro-generation may help achieve such goals. Energy yields from such technologies however, are very location and site specific. In rural environments, the average wind speed is relatively high and the homogeneous landscape promotes laminar air flow and stable (relatively) wind direction. In urban environmen ...
