    • WER-14: The use of wind power for oil production in Kansas 

      Fulton, Jay A.; Thomann, Gary C. (Wichita State University. Wind Energy Laboratory. Center for Energy Studies, 1982-02)
      Five topics concerning the use of wind power by the Kansas crude oil production industry are explored: ( l ) the Kansas wind resource; (2) methods of oil production; (3) energy requirements of the oil industry; (4) ...
    • WER-2: Wichita, Kansas wind characteristics estimated from 1968-1973 NWS data : performance of the NASA 100 kw prototype wind generator in the Wichita wind regime 

      Thomann, Gary C.; Jong, Mark T. (Wichita State University. Center for Energy Studies, 1977-02)
      At the present time there ex ists a capabi lity to manufacture wind turbines for generati ng el ectric power to be fed into the utility grid. These turbines would not be l arge by conventi onal power plant standards; individual ...
    • WER-4: Wind characteristics for the western part of Kansas 

      Jong, Mark T.; Thomann, Gary C. (Wichita State University. Wind Energy Laboratory, 1978-02)
      The Kansas stations show power densities of from 175 to 200 W/m2 at a height of 25 ft. Using the 3/7 power law, a 200 W/m2 power density would increase to 360 W/m2 at a height of 100 ft and to 490 W/mZ at 200 ft. There ...
    • WER-5: Wind power estimation in the Great Plains 

      Thomann, Gary C.; Jong, Mark T. (Wichita State University. Wind Energy Laboratory, 1978-11)
      Some aspects of wind power estimation are examined. Confidence intervals for wind power density are calculated from existing National Weather Service wind data for the Great Plains area. Correlation of yearly mean wind ...
    • WER-7: The use of water source heat pumps in south central Kansas 

      Fulton, Jay A.; Thomann, Gary C. (Wichita State University. Center for Energy Studies, 1979-08)
      A water source heat pump (WSHP) operates similarly to a conventional air-to-air heat pump except that instead of using the air as a heat source or sink, a water reservoir, such as ground water, is used. The conventional ...
