Wind Energy

What is meant by electric power generation using wind?

 

Written By Admin, on Saturday April 21st 2009

Answer:

The blowing wind has enormous power and the wind powered electric generator is used to convert this kinetic energy of the wind into electric power. This generator consist of components such as  Wind blades, Small electric power generator, Galvanized iron pipe of about 12 or 18 meters, Rechargeable battery, Control unit and an inverter.

When this system is established in an open place against the blowing wind, the wind blades start turning and which in turn rotates the generator to produce a flow of alternate current (AC). The alternate current (AC) is then converted into direct current (DC) by a Diode Circuit and is stored in a rechargeable battery.
