Analyzing the Global Market for Wind Turbine Generators

Analyzing the Global Market for Wind Turbine Generators

The purpose of the wind turbine generator in a wind turbine is to convert mechanical energy into electrical power. Working with the wind turbine rotor, the wind turbine generator supplies energy from the wind turbine to the electrical grid. There are many different types of wind turbine generators in use today, through the most common ones are the induction generator and synchronous generators with permanent magnets (also known as permanent magnet alternators).
