Wind turbines have taken renewable energy to the next level. These renewable energy machines are starting to appear everywhere.
Wind turbines generate a lot of mixed feelings (as well as electricity), but how do the people who own the land or work the land around them feel?
Wind turbines, as far as the eye can see, swirling happily, without breeze, in amongst the city skyscrapers.
How do wind turbines know where to turn to catch the wind? This is something that everyone has wondered about…
A dump load, known as a diversion load or dump resistor, is an essential safety feature of wind turbines.
Have you ever wondered, ‘How do wind turbines work on days when there is no wind?’ Well – this is when the battery saves the day.
The main function of a wind turbine generator is to transform the kinetic energy captured by the wind turbine blades into electrical energy.
Does renewable energy mean the electricity generated was sourced from ‘naturally replenishing’ sources and without fossil fuels, but are wind turbines completely free of coal?
Wind turbines are visual symbols of the green energy movement. We see them clearly on our horizons, beckoning us towards ideals of zero-carbon output energies. How much of this representation is true, though? It does not take much digging to unearth the less than sustainable factors of wind farms. The turbines themselves are made of…
