Shehan, Agreed what you are saying but dont you think so one should use permanent method of energy production .like noise it is almost every where even where there are no humans we can get sound by animals insects or birds
"Do you know what cities may be good choices for wind energy? Here in Albuquerque, we have a windy spring, but I don't believe we top 200 windy days. The need for consistent wind could create barriers to wind energy collection."
Rob, am from India and here in most parts of southern states like Tamilnadu and Kerala has deployed similar models. These states have a vast costal area with Arabian sea and hence a good source of wind too.
"Yes as you said some areas do have much wind to generate energy, for such areas we could easily use solar panels to generate power as we have ample sun light that we waste. "
Shehan, if it's a hybrid model then the absence of one source can be maintain/substitute by the other. I mean if its cloudy day, sunlight may not be there and hence power can be generated by wind and vice versa.
Shehan, a transformer is not a way to increase the power. One could increase the voltage, but the power is a fairly constant quantity. Captured power is a direct function of the effective area that is capturing the wind. No way around that.
@Elizabeth – I think in NY we could have the small wind turbines and solar panels on top of roofs on skyscrapers. Solar panels could also be on streets to light up the street light there by at least contributing something to the power grid.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
Design News and Digi-Key presents: Creating & Testing Your First RTOS Application Using MQX, a crash course that will look at defining a project, selecting a target processor, blocking code, defining tasks, completing code, and debugging.
These are the toys that inspired budding engineers to try out sublime designs, create miniature structures, and experiment with bizarre contraptions using sets that could be torn down and reconstructed over and over.
PowerStream is deploying the microgrid at its headquarters to demonstrate how people can generate and distribute their own energy and make their homes and businesses more sustainable through renewables.
