Wind is the flow of gases on a large scale. On Earth, wind is consisted of the bulk movement of air. In outer space, solar wind is the movement of gases or charged particles from the sun through space, while planetary wind is the outgassing of light chemical elements from a planet’s atmosphere into space. Winds are often classified by their spatial scale, their speed, the types of forces that cause them, the regions in which they occur, and their effect. The strongest observed winds on a planet in our solar system may occur on Neptune and Saturn.
Nowadays, a yardstick may used to determine the best locations for wind energy development is referred to as wind power density. It is may a calculation relating to the effective force of the wind at a particular location, frequently expressed in terms of the elevation above ground level over period of time. It take into account wind velocity and mass. Color coded maps are also prepared for a particular area are described as, for example, “mean annual power density at 50 meters.” The result of the above calculation is included in an index developed by the National Renewable Energy Lab and referred to as “NREL CLASS.”
