Use of wind turbines
Wind turbines convert kinetic energy into electricity. They are used in many countries to reduce energy costs and the use of fossil fuels, which have an adverse effect on the environment and climate.
The amount of electricity generated by wind turbines depends on their size and wind speed. Higher speeds generate more energy because they allow the blades to rotate faster.
The electric generators used on wind turbines can be induction or synchronous generators. It may be necessary to use a transformer to increase or decrease the voltage so that it is compatible with the voltage for final consumption.
