Definition of wind energy and the method of generating electricity from it

Wind energy is a form of renewable energy sources, in which turbines convert the kinetic energy of the wind into mechanical or electrical energy, and this energy is used to provide the necessary power needed by many different fields; such as industry, agriculture and others.
Electricity is generated from wind energy using a turbine, the wind moves the Blades of a fan-like turbine, which causes its rotation, which, in turn, turns on the generator responsible for generating mechanical and electrical energy. The turbine converts wind energy into electrical energy by using the aerodynamic force generated by the rotating blades, which works with the same idea as the wings of an airplane or a fan, when the wind flows and reaches the vane, the air pressure decreases on one side of this vane, and this difference in pressure creates lifting and pulling forces. The lifting force is stronger than the pulling force, and this leads to the rotation of the vane, which is connected to the generator either directly by a turbine or indirectly through a shaft and gearbox, and this leads to the operation of the generator that generates electricity.
