Magnets used in Electric generators for wind turbines

A wind turbine is referred to as a wind energy converter, which converts the wind's kinetic energy into electrical energy.

Inside a generator is a magnet, some electrical wire, and a source of mechanical energy(in wind turbines is wind). The mechanical energy moves the wire into the magnetic field of the magnet so that the wire cuts through the magnetic lines of force, which leads a current produced in the wire.
