Featured lesson plan: Turbulence and How to Avoid It

Wind turbines work best when they are exposed to consistent winds moving with constant speed and direction. Turbulence (“swirling winds”) causes problems. In this lesson, students will investigate turbulence generated by obstacles such as school buildings or trees. Simple analysis and measurements illustrate the concepts of turbulence, and indicate how it can be avoided in site selection for wind turbines.
