Wind Power

Wind power systems transform wind energy into mechanical or electrical energy. Wind turbines are the main component of wind power plants. Modern wind turbines use the aerodynamic lift principle, i.e. the same principle applied to generate the lift forces on the wings of aircrafts. The wind flow passes over the rotor blades of the wind turbine generating a lifting force that makes the rotor turn around.
