## Main Question or Discussion Point

Im looking for information regarding wind turbines. A 1.5 megawatt turbine rotates at 20 rpm and requires 338 kilonewton meters of force. A 100 kilowatt turbine rotates at 60 rpm and requires 19.4 kilonewton meters of force. Both are gearbox driven generators.

Is there a formula that is used to determine these torques? I do not have the intellect to successfully determine this. Is more information needed in order to get the result?
