Windmill turbine generally called as wind turbine is a machine that is used to convert energy in the wind into electricity. The windmill turbine has blades that rotate for a certain number of revolutions depending on the technology.
They rotate at a constant or variable velocity according to the velocity of wind in order to reach a high efficiency. The way a turbine works can be explained in phases like orientation, turning of the blades, gearbox, generation, evacuation and monitoring.

Questions and Answers:
- What is the main function of a windmill turbine?
- The windmill turbines are used to convert the kinetic energy to electricity that is used for various purposes.
2) What are the types of windmill turbines?
A. There are basically two types of windmill turbines, horizontal axis and vertical axis turbines.
3) What are the main components of windmill turbine?
A. The main components of windmill turbine are rotor, generator, blades, controller and gear box.
4) What are the advantages of windmill turbines?
A. Windmill turbines are not expensive and are considered to be the most reasonable renewable source of energy. Also, windmill turbines produce the most effective and clean energy without producing greenhouse gases or any waste product.
5) What are the disadvantages of windmill turbines?
A. The main disadvantage of windmill turbine is that they are very huge and affect the bird life and their habitat. But this can be reduced to a great extent if proper migration strategies are put in place.
Windmill turbines are used to generate mechanical power that is used to generate electricity for various purposes like pumping water and grain grinding.
It is a very clean form of energy as it does not generate any waste product that again leads to various environmental issues.
There are many types of windmill turbines that are blade less as well as with blades and horizontal and vertical axis.
Windmill turbines are inexpensive and with the increasing demand there many variations that are been built.
