What is the typical top blade tip speed of a commercial wind turbine?



  1. 0 Votes

    Typical commercial-scale wind turbines spin at 15-20 RPM and have blades of around 40 meters. Therefore, the tip of the blade must travel 251.2m for a full rotation, meaning it is traveling 3768m to 5024m each minute. This gives the result that the tip of the blade must be moving at between 62.8 and 83.7 meters per second.
