In the case of windmill, the maximum theoretical efficiency of a thin rotor can be found based on the following assumptions:

The Benz limit has&nbsp;predicted the theoretical maximum value for the power coefficient to be 0.593. This means that the theoretical limit of power removed from the fluid is 59.3%. In comparison, commercial wind turbines are currently able to achieve 40 - 50% conversion due to slight inefficiencies related to the blade design and mechanical process.<ref>Gorlov A.M., Silantyev V.M., Limits of the Turbine Efficiency for Free Fluid Flow, Journal of Energy Resources Technology - December 2001 - Volume 123, Issue 4, pp. 311-317.</ref>
