The angle is adjusted in radians and seems to indicate a maximum value at approximately 0.62 radians, or roughly 35.5 degrees. This translates in a maximum conversion of 38.5% of the wind force into rotational motion. Therefore, the blades should be tilted at an angle of roughly 35.5 degrees from the oncoming air stream to obtain the optimal amount of energy using flat blade windmills.

 Furthermore, to transmit the electricity generated to be used for applications such as operating lights, radios or charging batteries, then it is critical to have an understanding of electrical theory such as the required voltage and amperage to power the desired device.
