Wind energy is the environmental pollution free, hazardless and one of the best renewable energy for generation of electric power. The main aim of the paper is "to produce current using multi generator and single rotor". This paper proposes multi-generator to address potential challenges: dimension, cost and reliability. The two electromagnetic induction generators are desired to share the single shaft through straight bevel gears. These poles of the two generators will be changed as alternate to parallel. This paper discussed about the design procedure of gears, gear life and wind turbine rotors. The output current is stored in series of battery to appliances through converter and step up transformer. The Construction, working, parts of windmill, materials are discussed detailed in this paper.
