Wind Turbines

·         A wind turbine is a machine for converting the kinetic energy in wind into mechanical energy.

·         If the mechanical energy is used directly by machinery, such as a pump or grinding stones, the machine is usually called a windmill.

·         If the mechanical energy is converted to electricity, the machine is called a wind turbine.

·         Wind turbines are broadly classified as horizontal axis or vertical axis.
