Functioning of a wind turbine :
A wind turbine produces some electricity thanks to the strength of the wind. All wind turbines work in a similar way. With the strength of the wind, the so-called propeller rotor starts up, and begins turning. The rotor is situated at the top of the mast because winds blow more in height. The propeller pulls an axis in the nacelle, called tree, connected with an alternator. Thanks to the energy supplied by the rotation of the axis, the alternator produces an alternative electric current. A transformer situated inside the mast raises the electric current tension produced by the alternator so that it can be more easily transported in lines with average tension of the network. To be able to start, wind turbine needs a minimal wind speed: approximately 10 to 15 kilometers per hour. For reason of safety, when the wind exceeds 90 kilometers per hour, wind turbine stops. The maximum speed is of 50 kilometers per hour.
