what are the two basic configuration of wind Turbines?
what is the difference between HAWTs and VAWTs
What is rotor shaft?
Wind turbines have two basic configurations:
horizontal axis wind turbines (HAWTs)
vertical axis wind turbines (VAWTs)
Horizontal axis wind turbines (HAWTs) include a vane so that the turbine blades are continuously pointed into the wind.
Vertical axis wind turbines (VAWTs) can harness wind energy from any direction.
A prototype 3 MW generator with a 2-bladed 60m diameter rotor was installed on Orkney in 1987 and was the world's largest for many years. In 2004 a 5 MW generator with a 3-bladed, 126m diameter rotor was being installed on the German Baltic coast.
