A wind monitoring process that allows fast startup of engine driven generators in anticipation of diminishing wind strength where wind power is utilised.
A group of wind turbines grouped together in one location for the generation of electricity.
Power that is generated solely from the wind energy to drive electric generators by wind turbines. Wind is a renewable energy source.
A tool used in the wind energy industry to simulate wind flow over terrain and estimate the long-term power production of wind turbines and wind farms.
Wind is the flow of gases on a large scale.
Wide-area damping control is a class of automatic control systems used to provide stability augmentation to modern electrical power systems known as smart grids.
In electric power transmission, wheeling is the transportation of electric energy (megawatt-hours) from within an electrical grid to an electrical load outside the grid boundaries.
Also known as an "interconnection" in the USA is a large scale power grid that spans large areas and countries that are electrically connected and operating under a synchronised frequency.
Wetting current is the minimum electric current needing to flow through a contact to break through the surface film resistance at a contact. It is typically far below the contact's nominal maximum current rating.
The wet sulfuric acid process is a key gas desulfurization processes. It is an efficient process for recovering sulfur from various process gases in the form of commercial quality sulfuric acid (H2SO4), with simultaneous production of high pressure steam.
Water vapor that includes water droplets is described as wet steam.
A device that remove pollutants from a furnace flue gas or from other gas streams.
A wet gas is any gas with a small amount of liquid present.
A wet cell battery has a liquid electrolyte.
The wet-bulb temperature is the temperature read by a thermometer covered in water-soaked cloth over which air is passed.
The Western Interconnection is one of the two major alternating current (AC) wide area synchronous power grids in the continental U.S. power transmission grid.
A wellhead is the component at the surface of an oil or gas well that provides the structural and pressure-containing interface for the drilling and production equipment.
In the petroleum industry, a well test is the execution of a set of planned data acquisition activities.
Well logging, also known as borehole logging is the practice of making a detailed record (a well log) of the geologic formations penetrated by a borehole.
A well intervention, or well work, is any operation carried out on an oil or gas well during, or at the end of, its productive life that alters the state of the well or well geometry, provides well diagnostics, or manages the production of the well.
