Wind power is the fastest growing energy source in the world. In addition to being clean, renewable, and efficient, it is a more cost effective way to generate and purchase electricity.
How it works:
In a wind turbine, the force of the wind turns two or three blades around a rotor. A shaft extending from the rotating blades drives the generator, converting mechanical motion into electric power. Electricity flows through high-capacity cables to a nearby substation, where voltage is stepped up and delivered to the power grid.
BAL SEAL® Springs In Wind Power Generators
Bal Seal springs provide excellent electrical and mechanical performance in industrial connectors. The patented canted-coil spring provides near-constant spring contact force over a wide range of working deflection. Bal Seal springs provide long life and superior service in shock, vibration, and harsh environments.
