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, […]

What is BETZ limit for Wind Turbine Efficiency?

Betz Limit or Betz Law is the theoretical maximum efficiency for a wind turbine, that is 59.3%.

The Betz limit is the theoretical maximum efficiency for a wind turbine, calculated by German physicist Albert Betz back in 1919 [1]. Betz calculations showed that this value is 59.3%, which allowing at most only 59.3% of the wind kinetic energy to spin the turbine and generate electricity. In reality, turbines cannot reach the Betz […]

What is wind class in wind turbine?

Wind Class of a wind turbine (WTG) tells you what kind of turbine fits the “normal wind conditions” in a specific location.

Wondering what a wind turbine Wind Class is? Well here you should be able to find a quick answer. This WTG (Wind Turbine Gnerator) classification tells you what kind of turbine fits the “normal wind conditions” in the location that you are planning to install the wind turbine / have a Wind Park. Studying the […]

Why Have Wind Turbines Been Designed With Three Blades, No More No Less?

Why Have Wind Turbines Been Designed With Three Blades, No More No Less?

For centuries, human beings, the wind has been an important source of energy, from sailboats to windmills. As a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels, wind power has gained popularity in recent years. Wind farms have started dotting coastlines, and deserts across the world, and by now you’ve probably noticed their distinct wind turbine design [1]. […]
