Full text not available from this repository.


The technical and economic feasibility of wind power for rural conditions in India is assessed. Early and current wind power and windmill development are surveyed, and wind measurements on record are mentioned. The relative economics of wind power and power taken from the grid (for areas where such power is accessible) are compared for rural electrification, with base prices for power and distance (of village) from grid connections taken into account. Wind data are provided for various locations in India (design wind speed for energy maximum; power density for design wind speed; windmill hours of operation based on design speed).
