The article presents information related to the wind farms. From George Hoguet, Director of Mid-Atlantic Operations for NativeEnergy LLC in Media, Pennsylvania comes news that eight wind farms will soon be located on tribal lands throughout the Great Plains. NativeEnergy is building relationships with the Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe-- a single turbine is possible by late 2005 at their reservation in eastern South Dakota as a first step to one of the Council On Utility Policy wind farms. In 2005, customers will help with construction of a single wind turbine with plans underway for a future wind farm. The Rosebud St. Francis Wind Farm project construction likely will be delayed until 2006. There's good news and bad news in the wind industry: there's more demand than ever for new commercial wind turbines, but because of the double-digit percentage increase in demand, the manufacturers are scrambling to fill orders and are not accepting wind farm orders for delivery in 2005. As a result, the St. Francis wind farm, which was slotted to begin construction this summer, is on hold until turbine manufacturers can guarantee a delivery date.

    This paper discusses the synchronization phenomena of wind turbines in a wind farm. The phenomena illustrate the situation where a blade revolution of a wind turbine is pulled into phase with that of the other turbines in a wind farm. If blades of many turbines simultaneously pass in front of...
