Innovation in Wind Turbine Design addresses the fundamentalsof design, the reasons behind design choices, and describes themethodology for evaluating innovative systems and components.Always referencing a state of the art system for comparison,Jamieson discusses the basics of wind turbine theory and design, aswell as how to apply existing engineering knowledge to furtheradvance the technology, enabling the reader to gain a thoroughunderstanding of current technology before assessing where it cango in the future.
Innovation in Wind Turbine Design is divided into fourmain sections covering design background, technology evaluation,design themes and innovative technology examples:
* Section 1 reviews aerodynamic theory and theoptimization of rotor design, discusses wind energy conversionsystems, drive trains, scaling issues, offshore wind turbines, andconcludes with an overview of technology trends with a glimpse ofpossible future technology
* Section 2 comprises a global view of the multitude ofdesign options for wind turbine systems and develops evaluationmethodology, including cost of energy assessment with some specificexamples
* Section 3 discusses recurrent design themes such asblade number, pitch or stall, horizontal or vertical axis
* Section 4 considers examples of innovative technologywith case studies from real-life commercial clients.
This groundbreaking synopsis of the state of the art in windturbine design is must-have reading for professional windengineers, power engineers and turbine designers, as well asconsultants, researchers and academics working in renewableenergy.

Peter Jamieson, Principal Engineer, Special ProjectsDepartment, Garrad Hassan & Partners Ltd., Edinburgh,Scotland
Peter Jamieson has been in the wind industry since 1980, and withGarrad Hassan since 1991 as a founding founder member of theirScottish office. He was previously with James Howden of Glasgow whomanufactured wind turbines from 1980 - 1988.
He currently heads the "Special Projects" department in GarradHassan with involvement in innovative designs of wind turbine andcomponent developments. He is also involved in technology reviewfor government, wind industry and commercial organisations. He hasauthored circa 30 published papers on wind energy topics, as wellas magazine articles, and authored much of the technologicalcontent for the EWEA (European Wind Energy Association) publicationWind Energy: The Facts. He holds a number of patents on windturbine rotor technology. - Newsletter
