How Does a Wind Turbine Work? What Are Its Components?

wind turbines

The way a wind turbine works is the opposite of a rotating motor. While in a motor, the energy is consumed, but in a wind turbine that energy is generated in the form of electricity from rotating blades. Including wind, in most other technologies  (non-renewable and renewable), rotating generators are the main electricity generation component, […]

The Largest Offshore Wind Farm in the World with More than 1200 MW Capacity

2021 was a brilliant year for renewable energy installation, especially wind energy despite the second year of the COVID-19 pandemic. The wind industry has enjoyed its second-best year ever, in 2021 after 2020’s record, 95.3 GW [1]. Although the onshore wind has the leading role in the wind energy market, offshore wind has had a […]

Introducing Some of Wind Turbine Generator’s Technical Specifications

Introducing Some of Wind Turbine Generator’s Technical Specifications

Introduction to wind turbine generators Wind turbine Generators work on a simple principle: instead of using electricity to make wind—like a fan—wind turbines use wind to make electricity [1]. In a wind turbine generator, propeller-like blades spin around a rotor, spinning a generator, which creates electricity. As the wind blows across the rotor blades, a […]
