...Blades Alternate Energy Engineering: Specific Topic: Turbine Blades Introduction Wind turbines have been in use for many years. Wind turbines were used earlier in the 14th, 15th, 16th, 17 and 18th centaury to grind grains and for pumping water form wells. Turbine blades were made from wood and cloth to extract as much wind energy as the blade can. Previously the designs of the wind turbine blades are not very impressive to attain maximum amount of energy from wind. As the technology progresses, the designs of the wind turbine blades also changed. In the mid 19th centaury, wind turbines with multiple blades made from steel were found to be very...

A wind turbine converts kinetic energy of wind into mechanical power, which can be used to execute various tasks such as pounding cereals or pumping water from boreholes. Further, this mechanical power harnessed from the wind through the use of turbines can also be converted into electricity using a generator.
