However you need more than just the turbine to generate and use electricity, Wind grid-connected power generation systems, as supplied by ViNi GES, are comprised of several components.
- The Director(s): Catches the wind, and directs it straight in to the turbine for maximum production performance.
- The Turbine: Converts wind into AC signals.
- The Controller: Converts AC signals in to DC signals.
- The Grid Inverter: Converts the DC signals back in to AC signals which are conform to the phase and frequency of the local electric grid, enabling it to effectively power appliances. This device will also allow you to store the surplus of electricity either for later use or to channel it through to the local electric company.
