Wind power generation refers to getting the electrical energy by conversion of wind energy into rotational energy of the blades and converting the rotating energy into electrical energy by the generator. Wind energy increases with the cube of the wind speed, therefore a wind turbine generator should be installed in the higher wind speed area. Wind energy is a renewable source of energy and is available all around the globe. Wind turbines are designed to harness natural resources. Wind turbines can operate from 14km/hr. to 90km/hr. of wind speed, and are being globally used widely.
India’s wind energy sector has shown consistent progress. The expansion of the wind industry has led to a strong ecosystem, project operation capabilities, and manufacturing base of about 10,000 MW per annum. The country currently has the fourth-highest wind installed capacity worldwide with a total installed capacity of 39.25 GW (as on 31st March 2021), generating around 60.149 Billion Units during 2020-21.
