How wind turbines generate electricity?

Wind power can be used to generate electricity. It is a renewable enrgy source and one of the fastest growing energy sources in the world.

How Wind Turbines Generate Electricity?

Finally, a local transformer reduces the voltage and so electricity can be sent to homes and businesses.

Next, the electricity is sent through a powerline to a transformer where the voltage increases. After the voltage has increased, the electricity joins power distribution lines.

First, an inflow of wind blows across the blades of a wind turbine, making the rotor spin. As the blades and rotor turn, they spin a shaft which connects to the generator, which consists of a conductor surrounded by magnets.

At this point, the magnets spin around the conductor and convert the kinetic energy from the wind into electricity.
