How do wind turbines generate electricity? - IN 60 SECONDS. www.dob-academy.nl
Wind turbines generate electricity from kinetic energy in wind. But how do they do it, what components are required? In this episode in our 60 second series we show how wind turbines work by giving a quick overview of the components that are needed. From the sensors that collect wind data to the electric amplifiers that are needed to connect the turbines to the grid. ***DISCLAIMER: every turbine type is different and this video only shows an example of one turbine design. Do you want to know more, please take a look on our website: www.dob-academy.nl
This video is the sixth episode in a series of concise video lectures on offshore energy. At DOB-Academy we have a passion for sharing knowledge and that is why we created this series. Easy to understand yet interesting for anyone from high school student to industry expert. Is there a topic you would like to learn more about in 60 seconds? Please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will consider adding it to our series.
