A wind turbine is a machine for converting the mechanical energy in wind into electrical energy.
If the mechanical energy is used directly by machinery, such as a pump or grinding stones, the machine is usually called a windmill.
If the mechanical energy is then converted to electricity, the machine is called a wind generator.
