Vertical axis wind turbines (VAWTs). Vertical axis wind turbines (VAWTs) have an axis of rotation that is vertical, and so, unlike the horizontal wind turbines, they can capture winds from any direction without the need to reposition the rotor when the wind direction changes (without a special yaw mechanism). Vertical axis wind turbines were also used in some applications as they have the advantage that they do not depend on the direction of the wind. It is possible to extract power relatively easier.

At present, the capital cost of wind generator plants has dropped to about $600 per kW and the electricity generation cost has reduced to 6 cents per kWh. It is expected to reduce the generation cost below 4 cents per kWh. Keeping this in view, the wind generation is going to be highly competitive with the conventional power plants. In Europe, USA, and Asia the wind power generation is increasing rapidly and this trend is going to continue due to economic viability of wind power generation. The technical advancement in power electronics is playing an important part in the development of wind power technology.

Phase-locked loops are used to increase the immunity to noise. This allows the synchronization to be based on several cycles of zero crossing information. The response time for this type of locking will be slower. Photovoltaic panels produce a current that is proportional to the amount of light falling on them. The panels are normally rated to produce 1000 W/m2 at 25◦ C. Under these conditions, the short-circuit current possible from these panels is typically only 20% higher than the nominal current whereas it is extremely variable for wind.
