    Trade winds are relatively consistent breezes that blow from the northeast in the northern hemisphere (Northeasterlies), and blow from the southeast in the southern hemisphere (Southeasterlies) towards the equator. Seamen taking voyages across the Atlantic Ocean on large sailing vessels used the trade winds because they were reliable and rarely stopped blowing. When a trade wind reaches the west it loops back east and turns into a prevailing westerly. Trade winds have influences on the weather

    The power of wind will be taken through a wind turbine and the power of the sun light will be taken through a solar panel. These wind turbines and solar panels will be delivering DC voltages. These voltages will be fed separately to charge controllers. Charge controller will be either PWM or MPPT. These charge controllers will be control the output voltage and will protect the battery from overloading and will protect the wind/solar units from reverse voltage flows. The outputs of charge controllers

    Our world today uses wind to make energy which is transferred into electricity that is supplied to our houses. Many countries around the world use wind turbines for power. Wind energy is clean and is safe for the environment. Wind turbines can be very powerful when properly placed. A normal sized turbine will produce 6 million kwh per year of electricity enough to supply around 1,500 EU houses. People have been using wind as a resource for hundreds of years such as in the netherlands they used windmills

    Using wind energy would be the best way to solve the world’s pollution problem that cause by burning of fossil fuel. The reason why I personally think that is the best way to solve the pollution is because the wind energy (wind turbine) only uses wind to produce electricity. Wind energy is plentiful, renewable, clean and produce no harmful gas. The effects to the environment are less problematic than the other nonrenewable energy source. It is also cheaper than coal or burning gas. Also the wind energy

    the principle on how a wind vane works. A wind vane is an instrument that is used to measure the winds direction. To do this, the wind vane spins and then points to which direction the wind is coming from. One end of the wind vane is shaped like an arrow and that is the side that points to the direction of the wind. The other side looks wider and that’s the side that catches the wind to move. The wind vane points to the direction the wind is coming from. 2. Determine the wind direction if the arrow

    Work? Electric power is produced when the blades move by the wind, more like a windmill. The speedier and consistently the wind will blow, the more electricity will be produced. The generated electricity is ‘plugged-in’ via inverter into your home’s standard mains supply. Remember, the wind turbine doesn't work as a “stand-alone” system. You cannot operate it without the mains power. The moment there is a power cut, it will stop working. Wind power don’t make you self-sufficient with the electricity

    Nature’s Home Organisation also recommended wind energy as a replacement for coal. Wind energy, similar to solar energy, is renewable, causes no pollution and cannot be over-consumed. (Maehlium, 2015) This means the duration of the usage wind energy is very long. However, the wind is an irregular source of energy as there isn’t wind blowing at one certain area 24/7, but then again the price of wind energy have decreased over 80% since 1980 and they keep decreasing. (Maehlium, 2015) This means although

    Wind energy is currently one of the most popular sources of renewable energy due to it being inexpensive, currently competing in price with fossil fuels (Kim and Dah-Chuan Lu 2010). Wind turbines function by using the kinetic energy of the wind to drive the blades of the turbine causing the generator to convert the kinetic energy into electrical energy (Mahela and Shaik 2016). Horizontal axis turbines are the most common type of turbine. Figure 1 the setup of an air turbine with the two most common
