Calculation of Wind Power 

Calculation of Wind Power    To understand how important it is to mount a wind turbine on a tall tower, consider a simple mathematical equation. It’s called the power equation and is used to  calculate the power available from the wind. This equation shows us that three factors influence the output of a wind energy

Astable, Monostable & Bistable Multivibrator

Astable, Monostable & Bistable Multivibrator Multivibrators, like the familiar sinusoidal oscillators, are circuits with regenerative feedback, with the difference that they produce pulsed output. There are three basic types of multivibrator, namely Bistable Multivibrator A bistable multivibrator circuit is one in which both LOW and HIGH output states are stable. Irrespective of the logic status
