The use of wind energy to produce electricity and mechanical power is in full swing all over the world. We are talking about energy sources here that are capable of producing electricity and mechanical power which is produced in a manner that is safer than the fossil fuels. It has no major effects on the environment and has been used for centuries without causing any major environmental problems. The energy produced by wind power is called windkin or wind energy. There are two main methods of harnessing the energy of wind to produce mechanical power: the aerial method and the sailboat method.
To understand the details of the use of windkin for mechanical power production, we must understand the basic process of formation of water; i.e. the atmospheric temperature fall due to the atmospheric pressure difference. This temperature fall results in the formation of crystals that are then further processed into steam. The formation of steam takes place when the water gets divided into droplets. This process is the basis of the sailboat method of producing mechanical power.
As the air temperature fall, the water droplets start to move. When they start to move, gravity is also affected, and the motion starts a rotation around the axis that is opposite to the motion that the water initially got. This is then further processed into electricity by means of wires that are connected to the generating source. The wires then continue to get the electricity which is then put to use in generating mechanical power.
When it comes to harnessing the wind energy, there are three steps involved in the process. These are:
1. Air temperature fall.
1. Air temperature fall. The temperature fall which is caused by the atmospheric pressure difference begins with the rising temperature air that is caused by the atmospheric refuelling. This air temperature fall is further processed into pressure drop which is effected by the wind direction. The resultant pressure drop continues as the air continues to move.
2. Light intensity. The light intensity continues due to the heat that is released by the temperature fall.
3. Wind direction. The wind direction is due to the heat that is released due to the air motion, and the motion continues due to the surface roughness of the earth. The resulting wind direction direction continues as the wind speed increases.
In the case of wind energy, it is used to harness the power from the wind that is created by the refuelling process of the atmosphere by heating it up by the presence of the fuel, and this heat is used to extract the power from the wind to produce mechanical power, and then this mechanical power is used to produce electricity. This process of wind power production is further explained in greater details in the course “Wind Power Production with Windmill and Wind Turbine” which can be taken as an introduction to the subject.
