Wind Energy Explained: Theory, Design and Application, 2nd Edition

Book Description

Wind energy’s bestselling textbook- fully revised.

This must-have second edition includes up-to-date data, diagrams, illustrations and thorough new material on:

  • the fundamentals of wind turbine aerodynamics;
  • wind turbine and modelling;
  • wind turbine standards;
  • offshore wind energy;
  • special purpose applications, such as energy storage and fuel production.

Fifty additional homework problems and a new appendix on data processing make this comprehensive edition perfect for engineering students.

This book offers a complete examination of one of the most promising sources of renewable energy and is a great introduction to this cross-disciplinary field for practising engineers.

“provides a wealth of and is an excellent reference book for people interested in the subject of wind energy.” (IEEE Power & Energy Magazine, November/December 2003)

“deserves a place in the library of every university and where renewable energy is taught.” (The International Journal of Electrical Engineering Education, Vol.41, No.2 April 2004)

“a very comprehensive and well-organized treatment of the current status of wind power.” (Choice, Vol. 40, No. 4, December 2002)
