This paper describes the general operating modes of wind-powered electric utility plants under constant-speed or variable speed classifications. It is shown that for a particular set of wind frequency–velocity spectra there are a number of attractive system configurations, so far as total yearly energy production is concerned. Thus, detailed cost effectiveness studies and additional research will be required to develop practical wind electric conversion systems (WECS).
