Wind is merely air in motion. Wind turbine convert kinetic energy from the wind that passes over the rotors into electricity. In this paper a wind electrical system is designed using induction generator in PSCAD (Power System Computer Aided Design) software. Here a simulation approach is adopted to observe the nature of power obtained from the wind turbine. From the study it is seen that the turbine power is dependent on air density, area of the rotor and wind speed.
