Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0actually solar to electric, but using a wind turbine. i'm really confused

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we know wind is caused when rarer hot air from the ground(its the ground that is heatd more than the upper air..thats y we have cool climate as we go up)pushes the denser upper air causing wind

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the fan rotates the magnet inside the copper coil...according to faradays law an emf is induced when the magnetic flux linked with the coil changes....the ends of the coil is connected thro an external load causing a potential difference and voila you get current ..this current is usually high so it is stepped up and then down using transformer thn it comes to ur house at a regular 240 volts and u get the lamp lightd..actually this is very simple...the explanation is huge..check more at wiki
