A highly accessible and authoritative account of windenergy's scientific background, current technology, andinternational status, with an emphasis on large turbines and windfarms, both onshore and offshore
Topics covered include:
* a brief history of wind energy
* the nature of the wind
* turbine aerodynamics, mechanics, and electrics
* wind farms
* offshore opportunities and challenges
* grid integration of wind energy
* economic and environmental aspects
Whilst intellectually rigorous, this is not an academictreatise. Key equations are fully discussed, providing essentialtheoretical background. The text is supported by copiousillustrations and about 50 inspiring full-colour photographs fromaround the world.
This book is aimed at a wide readership including professionals,policy makers and employees in the energy sector in need of a basicappreciation of the underlying principles of wind energy or a quickupdate. Its style and level will also appeal to second and thirdyear undergraduate and postgraduate students of renewable and windenergy, energy systems and electrical/electronic engineering.
