Minimum velocity of wind required for a functional windmill is about:
A. 15 km /h
B. 15 m/s
C. 30 m/s
D. Any velocity will do
the kinetic energy of wind is utilised to generate electricity. In this, the wind energy is used to move the turbine of windmill at high speed which generates electricity. So the minimum speed required to move the fans of windmill is 15km/hr.
