Savona Equipment has Wind-Powered Electrical Generators for Sale
We supply wind turbines that can rotate about either a horizontal or a vertical axis, the former being both older and more common. We will also sell horizontal axis wind turbine parts including gearboxes, rotor shafts, and brake assemblies. Vertical-axis wind turbines (or VAWTs) are for sale and have the main rotor shaft arranged vertically.
Wind turbines converts kinetic energy from the wind into electrical power. Medium-larger turbines for sale can be used for making small contributions to a domestic power supply while selling unused power back to the utility supplier via the electrical grid. Arrays of large turbines for sale are commonly used in wind farms are becoming an increasingly important source of renewable energy as part of a strategy to reduce reliance on fossil fuels.
Conventional horizontal axis turbines can be divided into three components. The rotor component, which includes the blades for converting wind energy to low speed rotational energy. The generator component, which includes the electrical generator the control electronics, and most likely a gearbox (e.g. planetary gearbox), adjustable-speed drive, or continuously variable transmission component for converting the low speed incoming rotation to high speed rotation suitable for generating electricity. The structural support component, which includes the tower and rotor yaw mechanism.
