Where Does the Wind Test Best?
Region:Bay Area
City:Stoney Creek, ON
School:Our Lady of Peace E.S.
Abstract:Vertical Axis Wind Turbine power output was studied. Factors that affect wind were organized to generate an algorithm to help determine where wind availability would be best in a specified area. More wind availability was assumed to create more wind power. Applying the algorithm against power output data proved that an algorithm can successfully predict wind availability and guide where to place a wind turbine.
