Wind turbines are traditionally used to generate electrical energy. However for small, remote applications a wind turbine can also be used to convert wind power into thermal power in order to reduce the cost of energy used for heating sys-tems. The wind heat generator is based on the principle of the Joule machine driven by a wind turbine. To obtain optimal per-formance the torque-speed characteristics of the turbine and the heat generator should be matched. By recognising this require-ment the model of a wind heat generator was developed and simu-lated. The result of the simulation shows the behavior of the wind heat generator operating at maximum power.
