After actually taking notice of wind speeds and seasons, and being exposed to wind power in general for the last year I have come to the conclusion that we are designing our turbines for too high a cut in. Lets face it, the posted winds speed for the nation are for 30 meters up. I don't have a tower 100 foot high. If the wind is less than 10 mph 90% of the time and over 10 mph 10% of the time , it seems to me that I would rather charge my batteries than dump it all. I would rather charge my batteries instead of watch as my turbine spins for no reason <10mph(because cut-in is too high). Also the wind strength (due to speed and density) is more in the winter and less in the summer. Heavy air at a higher speed pushes with greater force. I want my turbine to charge my batteries when the wind is 3 mph and up to 20 mph. (which is 90% of the time). Wouldn't that make more sense than the way we design our turbines now? I will be designing my turbines to take advantage of the low wind and dump it during the 10% high wind periods. I may be full of it but that's what I see. Discussion is welcome.
