Wind turbines use the wind’s kinetic energy to generate electrical energy that can be used in homes and businesses. Individual wind turbines can be used to generate electricity on a small scale – to power a single home, for example. A large number of wind turbines grouped together, sometimes known as a wind farm or wind park, can generate electricity on a much larger scale.

The gears, then connects the low speed shaft with the high speed shaft that helps to drive the generator. Some wind turbines use a direct drive mechanism to produce power from generator. At last, the shaft insists the generator to produce electricity, which further goes to the transformer. Then the electricity is transmitted through the electric network.
