Wind Electricity Generator Block  Diagram

 

 

 

 

The picture below depicts a generic wind turbine generators bock diagram connected to a solar panel system to assure continued power using the two systems together.

 

This kind of arrangements in which both wind and solar energies sources are connected will be more and more common because a constant strong  wind flow can not be given for a long period of time and at the same time the solar panels are not operational at night as opposite to wind generators.

 

Please be aware of the many types of systems architecture, this is just one of them. Single units for wind generators range from just a few watts to all the way up to several megawatts are now in service with utilities services companies world wide.
