The wind turbine generator or WTG is responsible for converting the mechanical energy into electrical energy in a wind turbine. The wind turbine generator works in combination with the power source of the wind turbine that is the wind turbine rotor. There are many different types of generators that can be used in a wind turbine. However, at the moment, three major types are generally used. These are the induction generator, permanent magnet alternators or Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generators (PMSG) and brushed DC motor. Brushed DC motors are usually put into use in home built wind turbines.

The global market for wind turbine generators has always been growing at a good rate with production primarily being concentrated in the regions of Europe and Asia Pacific. Some of the leading manufacturers of wind turbine generators in the global market include ABB, Siemens, Elin, Enercon, Gamesa and others.
