Wind Views | View from the Back

This week’s Wind View is a glimpse of the back of a wind turbine as it watches over our blades in the laydown yard at the North Findlay Wind Campus.

Here you can see how the nacelle, the generator, and the rotor (hub + three blades) fit together once finished. Motors in the nacelle allow it to yaw (rotate) vertically in order to face the wind. 💨 As it rotates, it moves the generator and rotor into the optimal position for energy generation. ⚡
