Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines (HAWT)
Vertical Axis Wind Turbines (VAWT)
Horizontal Axis or HAWT
This type of turbine is considered the most common type of wind turbine. The components of these turbines include a blade, a Nacelle, a generator, a shaft, a rotor, a gearbox, a base, a tower, a transmission system, And brakes. The length of some of these blades is up to 75 meters. After connecting the diameter of the blade rotation, it reaches 150 meters, which is transported from the factory to the site of the project by very large industrial machinery. The blade rotation speed is up to 290 km / h, with air pressure equal to 200 tonnes. The process is such that, after blowing wind turbine blades, they And the blades rotate the shaft, there’s also a gearbox at the bottom of the shaft, which also rotates the generator. The generator also generates electricity after turning it in and injects it into the network. There are also several other important activities in turbines that increase production and productivity. For example, in the turbine end of the turbine, there is an anemometer and a wind vane that constantly changes with increasing or decreasing Wind or wind direction change, and for the quality of production, these moves into a controller number Driver for its transmission. Also, these equipment is not damaged in critical conditions like severe storms. These turbines have diverging motors that inflate quickly to prevent turbine damage.
