Micro wind turbine sites in the UK, white dots: turbines  5 kWp and
< 10 KWp (Image mapping courtesy of Google Earth).

The UK has the best wind resource in Europe and this is now starting to be harnessed through both on-shore and off-shore multi-MW scale wind farms. Micro wind power technology, which is essentially the installation of small scale, 1-10 kW wind turbines on buildings or pole mounted as shown in Figure 1, is a rapidly […]


Micro wind generation modelling tool developed by the Sustainable Energy Research Group, turbine performance component.

Within the framework of a research project funded by the Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC) a micro wind modelling tool has been developed by SERG prompted by the imminent arrival of the technology. The tool allows the user to define a particular micro wind turbine and simulate its performance at various locations in the UK. Various […]
