  -> thanks!

agree  Tony M: Technically accurate: it is only the auxiliary equipment that is powered here. 'other wind turbines' needs to be understood as metonymy for 'the complete installation of which the actual wind turbine itself is only one component'

agree  Daryo: with all the corrections needed - what is being enegized is "the converter (141) as well as the auxiliary equipment (171) of the first wind turbine (101)" // otherwise it's plain nonsense.
