60 seconds: How do wind turbines capture wind?

The blades of a wind turbine capture the wind's energy. But how do they do it? In our new 60 seconds video lecture we take a look at the angle, shape and radial velocity of a wind turbine blade. Do you know what the speed of the blade is at the tip? Watch our video to find out.

This video is the ninth episode in a series of concise video lectures on offshore energy. You can still watch the previous episodes here. At DOB-Academy we have a passion for sharing knowledge and that is why we created this series. Easy to understand yet interesting for anyone from high school student to industry expert. Is there a topic you would like to learn more about in 60 seconds? Please let us know at and we will consider adding it to our series.
