Wind Turbine Generator

Wind Turbine Generator

A wind turbine generator is the device responsible for converting raw wind power into electricity. This takes place when the rotational movement generated by the blades enters the generator through the shaft. There, the rotation helps to create an electromagnetic field that produces electrical power at a maximum of hundreds of volts. The electricity then travels to a transformer where the voltage will be increased before being sent out for distribution.


A wind turbine generator, at least in a horizontal axis wind turbine, is found in the nacelle. This is the portion of the turbine apparatus that is located directly behind the wind turbine blades. Some may also refer to this area as the gearbox. Usually, the generator is located at the very back of the nacelle, and is the farthest piece of equipment from the blade.

A wind turbine generator cannot generate very much electricity in and of itself. Larger generators can possibly generate a little more power, but they are not commonly found in wind turbines. The size of the wind turbine generator is limited by the size of the nacelle, and the weight at the top of the tower. Because of this, wind turbines are generally set up in large groups called "wind farms," or "windmill farms."

Although it specifically designed for use in a wind turbine, all generators work in much the same way. A current is produced using the principles of electromagnetism. The movement of magnets around a metal coil inside the generator, or the movement of a coil near a stationary set of magnets, produces a current of electricity, which can then be put to practical use. In the case of a wind power, the movement inside the wind turbine generator is generated by the turning of the blades.

This is different than what most generators will use to produce the movement that generates the electricity. For common household generators, the most common power source is gasoline, kerosene or diesel. A wind turbine generator is considered one of the cleanest forms of energy, simply because its power source burns no fossil fuels, creates no pollution, and is totally renewable.

Wind Turbine Generator

Wind Turbine Generator

I was searching the internet looking for any kind of information-hopefully free-that would show me how to build a wind turbine generator. I even entertained the thought of purchasing a commercially built wind turbine generator, but the price was just too much.

I decided to build my own and thought that somewhere in the great expanse of the internet I would find "free" plans and be on my way.

Well, I found tidbits of information here and there but never really found the whole package that made everything clear. I finally decided to break down and spend $ 50.00 on some wind turbine generator e-book plans.

I wasn't too sure about it before I ordered, but I did know that they guaranteed a 100% refund if not satisfied.

I was more than satisfied.

They exceeded my expectations. I have now saved nearly $ 1000.00 in electric bills since building and installing my own roof-mounted wind turbine generator in a little over a year now. That's a pretty good return on investment from my original fifty bucks!

What do you get when you purchase these guides?

First of all...this is an e-book. As soon as you pay through their secure ordering page, you will immediately be able to download all of the information and videos to get started right away.

You do not receive any parts. The parts needed will be clearly illustrated and you will have to spend a little less than $ 200.00 for everything. So all together you will have to spend, including the price of the e-book, around $ 250.00 to build your wind generator.

Is it worth it?Yes. In fact, one of the main advantages of building your own wind turbine generator is the quick return of investment. If you purchase a commercially built unit, you could wait years before you could ever pay it off.

How long does it take to build?

The manuals claim you can build your turbine in two days. Depending on your experience with tools, this will vary.

Is it hard to do?

No. These manuals kept in mind that several people may not be as experienced as others so they made the instructions, and the building tasks quite simple.

Where can I purchase these plans?

Right here! Visit this wind turbine generator review site and decide which one to choose.
