Wind Turbines

Classification of Wind Turbines

Variable and Constant Speed Wind TurbinesAlthough known and exploited for a long time, wind energy was completely neglected during the industrial era, for the almost exclusive benefit, except hydroelectricity, of fossil fuels. The kinetic energy of the wind can be directly converted into mechanical energy and be usable for example in old windmills or to…

WD2.5-103TM The First Arab made Wind Turbine

Wind Energy in the Middle East   The wind is an important source for generating clean energy, and although most Arab countries in the Middle East do not have strong wind speeds, they depend mainly on solar energy because most of this regions has high solar radiations during the year, but some countries, such as…

2 Types of Generators used in wind turbines

#1.What is a Generator?   The generator is the main and important element among the elements of the wind turbine because it converts the energy that the turbine absorbs from the wind into electricity so that the turbine absorbs the energy of the wind in the form of kinetic energy in mechanical energy thanks to the…

2 Types of Wind Turbines

#1. What is a wind turbine? A wind turbine produces wind-based electricity. Its force activates the rotor blades that set an alternator in motion. There are many different wind turbine design categories, but they are generally grouped into three types based on the axis of rotation orientation. The most common type of Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines…
