The world's energy consumption is ever on the increase, raising crucial questions about the problem of global warming due to the release of greenhouse effect gases (GHG), on the one hand, and to the exhaustion of fossil resources, on the other one. Such realisation ought to result in an environment conscious economic development. Wind power is one of the most promising renewable energies. Within this context, this paper constitutes a study about the various configurations and performances of the most used generators in wind systems.
