...Wind power Introduction Wind power has been used since the beginning of history. Activities such as sailing g used the wind in moving the boats before the invention of the motor. The wind power through the use of wind mills was also used for watering of crops in Persia. History of Wind Power The term windmill came from the invention of early machines used by farmers for milling grain. Wind was the main source of power for the machines hence the name windmill. These machines were first used in Persia and China around 500 AD according to Ollholf (6). Windmills were also used in Netherlands for pumping water from the ground. The United States in 1870’s had its farmers using the power... of the...
