										Dear Manoj,

According to Bernouli's Theorm the net trust experienced propotional to the velocities difference above and below the wing of the areoplane
P1-P2= (1/2) *d *(V2^2-V1^2)
And net force experienced

Fnet= A * (1/2) *d *(V2^2-V1^2).....Eq 1
Where A= Total area of the of the wings and d = density of air and V1 and V2 are velocities above and below the wings.

Now the shape of the wind turbines is similar to that of the aeroplane .
the power output P = Fnet*Velocity of the wind
= A * (1/2) *d *V^2 * V (Since we can assume that the wind mill has V2=0 as maximum amount of the air flow takes place in the bulged part of the wings as shown in the figure thus giving V2 = V (velocity of the wind)

This implies Output power is proportional to V^3 where all the terms in the expression[A*(1/2)*d] can be assumed to be constant

Consider a circular plane of unit area perpendicular to the wind velocity. Wind crossing this plane in unit time would be trapped in the cylinder having this plane as its base and length V. (volume of this cylinder = Vx(unit area) = V)

=> Energy crossing the circular plane per unit time = Power of wind = ((1/2)xdxV2)xV

(since K.E. of wind per unit volume = ((1/2)xdxV2 and other forms of energy carried by wind are independent of V.)

=> Power of generator would be proportional to V3.
