Wind energy can be defined as the energy derived from wind to generate power. It is a sustainable and valuable investment for the future.
The construction of wind farms on land or at high sea is required to utilize wind energy, with dozens of wind turbines.
Solar radiation does not impact the earth’s surface proportionally, as several areas are warmer than others, weights less, and tends to rise, to develop low-pressure areas. In colder areas, as air descends, it weighs more and creates high-pressure areas. The motion in the air caused by the difference in pressure develops wind, Wind is utilized for producing electricity with the conversion of the kinetic energy of air in motion.
The wind turbines convert the kinetic energy into rotational energy, with the rotation of the rotor blades. This rotational energy is further transferred to the generator by a shaft, to produce electrical energy. The technological advancements have resulted in reduced costs and increased capacity.
