Wind Turbines - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

2011-11-1  Wind turbines convert the kinetic energy from wind into usable electrical energy. When the wind blows, propeller-like blades rotate to harness wind energy to spin the electric generator for electricity generation. Two major forms of wind turbines are available in the market: horizontal-axis turbines and vertical-axis turbines.
