Experimental Investigation of Windmill to Generate Electric Power using Magnetic Levitation : A Review

Authors(2) :-K. D. Chaware, N. N. Wadaskar

The present scenario indicates that the demand for electricity is increasing day by day and to meet it many research are going on. Electricity generation through renewable energy sources has gained attention in the last few decades due to depleting conventional energy sources and can help in reducing dependency on fossil fuels. One of the fastest growing renewable energy sources in the world is wind energy source. With the use of magnetic levitation the efficiency of the wind turbine can be increased and losses minimized. It also increases the life span of the generator. Magnetic Suspension Wind Power Generators, represent a very promising future for wind power generation.
