Wind energy has been shown to be one of the most viable sources of renewable energy. Hydraulic machines that convert the energy of a fluid into mechanical energy are called turbines. A wind turbine is a device which extracts kinetic energy from the wind. With increasing energy demands is necessary to increase the size of wind turbines. Under these conditions the turbine will start only at high wind speeds. On the other hand, the control of high speed is more difficult and the reduction of the inertial forces becomes mandatory. This study presents an analysis of the material influence on the wind turbine starting conditions.
