Today’s #FridayFact is about how a wind turbine works! #Windenergy as one form of #renewables is key to a #energytransition. 💨💡🔌 According to new studies it is enough to turn a wind arm black on that birds can see it! Wind Energy is one form of #renewables and essential for the #energytransition. Wind turbines as the device to turn wind's energy into electricity can be differentiated by their design principles. Wind turbines can operate with gearboxes or be gearless. The gearboxes' function is to convert mechanical power to electricity by transforming slow speed, high torque wind turbine rotation to higher speed. Only then the generator can produce electricity. Gearless wind turbines are also called direct drives as they do not use the gearbox at all. This design principle not only leads to more efficiency but less noise. In this version the rotor is directly attached to the generator such that the rotor blades and the generator turn in the same speed. According to new studies it is enough to turn a wind arm black on that birds can see it! #betd2020 #renewableenergy #windpower #windrad #infografik #windturbine #windpower #windpowergenerator #renewables #greenenergy #gogreen #greendeal #greenrecovery #friday
