Design and Fabrication of Wind Mill for Power Generation

Authors(2) :-G. Balasubramanian, P. Balashanmugam

The year 1973 has awakened the entire world from the energy crisis. Since then the entire focus of all developing countries turned towards non-conventional sources of energy. Of all the non-conventional energy sources wind energy is an inexhaustible, non-polluting, freely available energy. Enormous potential is associated with the kinetic energy of the wind. Previously the KE of the wind was utilized to drive wind turbines mostly for pumping water and grinding corns. The first wind turbine was employed for generation electricity in Denmark in 1890.India has started its power generation through (WEGs) from 1986. Later on number of wind electric generators (WEGs) has been installed every year. The paper deals with the technical details involved in the generation of power through wind technology. It discusses the factors responsible for generation of wind power and the limitations of the generator. While the emphasis is given on the various schemes used for production of electricity using wind power, the paper also gives insight into energy storage methods, safety precautions and site selection criteria. Wind power gave rise to public debate as the acceptance of wind turbines decreased during the expansion phase. These challenges were countered by policies enacted by state actors at the regional and local levels. Decisive factors were the amount, duration and reliability of the feed-in compensation, funding policy and the zoning and building laws. The successful establishment of wind power has been possible in spite the fact that it has been difficult to integrate wind power into the energy supply system due to wind power's intermittent nature, and despite resistance from actors of the fossil-nuclear energy supply system. This has been possible as a result of continually adjusting the policy approaches at various governance levels and reflecting various requirements in the different phases of the innovation process. Wind Power Generation in Germany the timing of policies demands a flexible design that is both relevant to a number of different public policy levels, yet tailored to the process in question.
