Wind power is a clean, renewable and cost-effective method of generating power. As system production costs decrease and the world turns to renewable energy, larger wind power farms are being built and are starting to encounter challenges in safety and operation efficiency.
Wind turbines allow us to harness the power of the wind and turn it into energy. When the wind blows, the wind turbine’s blades spin clockwise, capturing energy of the wind. This triggers the main shaft of the wind turbine, connected to a gearbox within the nacelle, to spin. The gearbox sends that energy to the generator, converting it to electricity. Wind electricity then travels to a transformer, where voltage levels are adjusted to match with the grid.
