Abstract: Wind energy can operate big turbines and hence, helps to produce of electrical power. It is a green energy and far less expensive than traditional sources of energy. Wind turbines are encountered with several issues due to their deployment in harsh environments where they are highly susceptible to wind storm and other environmental fluctuation. The windmills are designed to work under particular conditions and it need to be isolated in otherwise. Braking system is vital to windmills life and hence, it need to be selected carefully. This study discusses the technical norms of selecting the brake system that halt wind turbine during uncontrolled conditions such as high speed of wind. Furthermore, the effects of speed on the power quality is also discussed.
