    Here is an article, by a Cork professor. Not how he gives Ireland's electricity prices for the Euro zone only, not the world. Ireland is 4th highest for the Euro zone and the world.

    Next see how he blames our dependence on fossil fuel. Fossil fuel prices are globally set, so why should they make Ireland more expensive?

    Note also how he never mentions wind @ 2,500 mw (half of demand) costing 7 cent as opposed to 30 to 50 cent for fossil fuel electricity. These are the lies that are being put pout there folks.https://www.rte.ie/eile/brainstorm/2...rices-so-high/

    So while Holland is trying to get his bearings, this might be more relevant, how will an auction system work, will it mean the end of priority dispatch for wind? If he is being advised ny Aoife McVilly he will be in good hands ( suppose)

    Interesting view of wind energy in |Ireland which differs from that of Holland and Manguire with his sparkie job.

    http://www.greencoat-renewables.com/...n-document.pdf


    Note the load factor for the Tipperary wind farm is 27% net and for the Cork one its 33% Net. Does anyone know the difference between net and non net?

    or maybe you have a better way of achieving those reductions ??
    The point being they don't reduce reliance on fossil fuels - twit!!

    He is probably as qualified as David Fitzgerald is to waffle on climate science

    Every watt of electricity produced by joke wind turbines must be continuously backed up by fossil fuelled power stations. Apart from them being an expensive waste of resources, hideously damaging to the environment, e.g. they are set in place using an average of 1000 tons of concrete while the machines themselves are by and large manufactured in and shipped from China. The average development of a 25-turbine wind farm will require upwards of 100,000 litres of oil to be consumed in its construction phase. Wind farms in Ireland are located in highly scenic upland and eco-sensitive areas, destroying important habitats and disturbance to the wildlife which depends on these habitats. Another consequence is the impact on local ground water and surface water which is frequently at risk of pollution from the development as well as from changes to the local hydrological regime. Our natural environment and our landscape are non-renewable resources crucial to the well being of not just their local wild life but also the human community in these areas. They do nothing to reduce co2 output by needing to have fossil fueled power stations on standby 100% of the time due to the lousy intermittency of wind

    I am delighted to see my thread is doing so well and I thank all posters for posting. (all posters) without the greens, there would be no thread at all. I think this is a very useful piece. You will be aware that I have said the climate change hysteria has just 16 months to run its life cycle. i think it is time for me to forecast a life cycle for wind farm hysteria among investors. I mean why are some international investors putting their money into new wind farms when there is Gaelectric sell off there for the taking at a buyer's price?

    Meanwhile take a look at this from the home of this racket.

    2) In designing a brand new poly-phase A/C grid, (or an Island grid) how many conductors (wires could you consider installing between power station and factories using polyphase motors? Note industrial sized motors will be needed and these can be wound to order in a new system)
    Val a mhic,
    you still haven't given us details of the degrees you hold in Electrical Engineering.

    so, you now want to act the schoolmaster. LOL !!!!!

    ok, i'll bite - the answer to both of your questions.

    for a 380 volt, 3 phase systwm, you need four conductors 9wires),
    3 conductors for the three phases R, Y, B,
    & a neutral conductor, to give you 220 volt, between phase & neutral.

    anyway Turbs, when your Ice Age arrives "soon",
    all the wind generators will be closed down,
    as we will then need to pump as much greenhouse gases as possible into the atmosphere,
    in an attempt to counteract your Ice Age cooling.

    LOL !!!!

    OK, you are a bit unclear but near enough. Don't include any duplicate wires for added conductivity to avoid confusion. Just the bear minimum. So we have R Y B plus a neutral. 4 wires. Question: RY and B are connected to the ends of the generator 3 stater windings. Where is the 4th neutral wire connected to on the generator.? Ignore voltage, in this case there are no transformers (to avoid confusion) Any voltage differences is confined to the generator.
