Wind energy is the motion of air molecules driven by the Earths rotation this causes difference in atmospheric pressure. The term “wind power” describes the air flow that generates mechanical power.
Wind Power Technology
We have been using wind power for various reasons since ancient times. In the Middle East, buildings have been specifically constructed to act as windcatchers for ventilation. Windcatchers can be used to manage airflow in and around buildings and harnessed in different ways: uni-directional, bi-directional, and multi-directional. The construction of a windcatcher in architecture depends on the direction of airflow at that specific location.
Further developments in wind power technologies has allowed us to build larger, robust equipment. This has enabled humans to explore far off lands through ship building and prosper through agriculture – wind mill technology. Read more
