    Does anyone know of somewhere I could find some documentation on how to create a wind turbine?

    Thanks
    In the second link it says that with turbines that have rotors that face the wind the rotors need to be placed some distance from the tower.
    Do you know why this is?

    To help prevent the blades from striking the tower.
