Wind turbine blades are the main components that generate electricity. They are circular in shape. They rotate in order to capture the wind speeds. Once they are spinning, they are called ‘vane’ turbines. The basic mechanism is similar to the ones that are used to power generators.
There is a shaft attached to the top of the rotor blades. This shaft carries power to the generator. The electricity produced by the turbine is then sent to an electric generator. The shaft and the generator are connected to each other. If you want to generate electricity without wind speed, you can use a wind mill. This type of machine is also commonly known as a wind mill drive.
Wind turbines to make electricity even when there is no wind. Even when there is little wind, the blades will still spin. When there is wind speed, the blades will become silent. This is because the wind turbine is covered with very fine blades.
It is impossible to produce electricity at zero wind speed. So the only way to do that is to use a system that is designed to produce electricity even with minimal wind speed. This is what the cut-in wind speed sensor does. It just sits there and takes note of any changes in wind speed. As the wind speed gets lower, it gets cut-in. Then the generator is run with less electricity.
leading edge erosion and a review of existing protection solutions
Leading edge erosion results in reduced turbine efficiency that requires expensive repairs and tip speeds to be limited to protect blade edges. A review of the existing protection solutions is presented. The production and application of both gelcoats and flexible coatings relies heavily on manual procedures, leaving the coatings vulnerable to defects that can act as initiation points for erosion.
