Wind Turbine Components Major Components Modern wind turbines employ four major component assemblies - the rotor, nacelle, tower, and balance of system. The rotor includes blades which are used to harness wind energy and convert it into mechanical energy and a hub to support the blades. In addition, most wind turbines have a pitch mechanism to rotate and change the angle of the blades, based on the wind speed and the desired rotating speed. The nacelle is the structure that contains, encloses and supports the components that convert mechanical energy into elecricity. These components include generators, gearboxes and control electronics. The tower supports the rotor and nacelle and raises them to a height where higher wind speeds maximize energy extraction. Modern utility-scale wind turbine towers are typically up to ~160 meters (~525´) high, with blades that measure up to ~130 meters (~426´) in diameter and rotor and nacelle assemblies weighing several hundred tons. Additional balance-of-station components at ground height are required to gather, control and transmit power to the grid interconnection. The diagram below provides a schematic view of a wind turbine and its major components. Rotor Blades Swept Area of Blades Rotor Diameter Nacelle with Gearbox and Generator Hub Height ~160 Meter (~525´) Tower Underground Electrical Connection (Front View) Foundation (Side View) Wind Turbine Major Componets Wind power, one of the most developing industries of the past two decades, continues to grow and is becoming the largest source of renewable energy. Wind power has the potential to supply a significant portion of the global demand for sustainable energy, without creating a negative environmental impact. The increasing importance of wind power energy contributes to the advancement of new windmill technologies and components. ISCAR is committed to the ongoing development of state-of-the-art cutting tools and machining methods in order to provide its customers with the most productive, profitable and competitive manufacturing solutions for the wind power industry.
