(EnergyAsia, March 27, Friday) — The ‘Wind Energy Handbook’ draws on the collective industrial and academic experience of several experts to highlight the interdisciplinary nature of wind energy research and provide a comprehensive overview of wind energy for electricity generation.
As environmental concerns focus attention on the generation of electricity from clean and renewable sources, wind energy has become the world’s fastest growing energy source.
The book features contributions from Tony Burton, David Sharpe, Nick Jenkins and Ervin Bossanyi.
It discusses wind turbine technology and wind farm design and development, an in-depth examination of the aerodynamics and performance of land-based horizontal axis wind turbines, a survey of alternative machine architectures and an introduction to the design of the key components, description of the wind resource, coverage of site wind speed prediction technique and discussions on wind farm siting constraints and environmental impact, integration of wind farms into the electrical power system, power quality, system stability and the functions of wind turbine controllers and design and analysis techniques.
With coverage ranging from practical concerns about component designs to the economic importance of sustainable power sources, the ‘Wind Energy Handbook’ is highly recommended for engineers, turbine designers, wind energy consultants and graduate engineering students.
