A wind turbine is a kind of power device, converting wind energy into mechanical energy, which drives the rotor to rotate and finally outputs alternating current. Wind turbines generally consist of wind wheels, generators, direction regulators (tails), towers, speed-limiting safety mechanisms (fan controllers) and energy storage devices.

Working Principle of Wind Turbines

The wind turbine working principle is relatively simple. The wind wheel rotates under the action of the wind, which converts the kinetic energy of the wind into the mechanical energy of the wind wheel shaft and the generator rotates and generates electricity under the drive of the wind wheel shaft. As a renewable and pollution-free natural energy, wind energy has attracted people's more and more attention recently.

Applications of Wind Turbines

Small wind turbines are widely used as battery charging for auxiliary power for boats, vehicle and street lamps. Wind turbines for home are mainly used in rural areas, pastoral areas, mountainous areas, large, medium and small developing cities or buildings near business districts to meet the electricity demand of local users. Large turbines can provide domestic power supply to people like residential wind turbines and businessmen can sell some unused power back to the utility supplier via the electrical grid.

Types of Wind Turbines
  • Horizontal-axis wind turbines commonly have three or five blades and run against the wind, with the turbine rotating at the top of the tower, the blades face the wind.
  • Vertical-axis wind turbines also comes with 3 blades usually and don't need to be adjusted to point into the wind to operate.

According to where wind turbines are installed and how they are connected to the grid, wind turbines can be categorized into offshore wind turbine and onshore wind turbine.
