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 systems. The wind heat generator is based on the principle of the Joule machine driven by a wind turbine. To obtain optimal performance the torque-speed characteristics of the turbine and the heat generator should be matched. By recognising this requirement the model of a wind heat generator was developed and simulated. The result of the simulation shows the behavior of the wind heat generator operating at maximum power
