Wind turbines usually produce a wild (variable) 3 phase alternating current (AC) which is proportional to the RPM of the rotor. Depending on whether the wind turbine is being used in an off-grid or grid-connected system. The power may be converted to DC for battery charging, or into AC for synchronization and connection to the power grid.
Wind energy is usually selected for sites that require a more substantial amount of power, such as larger cottages, small full-time or summer homes/businesses. However, sometimes wind may be more available than solar at a site and it may be selected for some smaller applications due to feasibility or an exceptionally good wind speed.
To install a wind turbine, it is advised that a good wind site is selected with plenty of space for the lowering and raising of a tower. Also depending on which tower is selected, the tower may be free-standing, or dependent on guy wires for support.
Routine maintenance is required due to the moving parts of the wind turbine. The maintenance plan will vary by model. Unlike solar modules, sometimes noise is generated by the spinning of the blades.
