Rare-earth Magnets In Wind Turbines

Permanent Magnets play a critical part in some of the world’s largest wind turbines. Rare earth Magnets, such as Strong neodymium-iron-boron magnets, have been used in some wind-turbine designs to lower costs, work stability, and reduce the need for high price and ongoing maintenance. What are Wind turbine generators? In 1831, Michael Faraday created an electromagnetic generator. He discovered that an electric current can be created in a conductor when it’s moved through the magnetic field. In the following 200 years, magnets and magnetic fields continue to play an integral part in modern electric power generation. People continue to make upon Faraday’s inventions, with new designs to solve 21st-century problems. In the beginning, people use a kind of Induction generator to make […]
