Summary

Phase 1 of the EPSRC SUPERGEN Wind programme began in March 2006 and work continued under Phase 2 until March 2014. The strategic aim was to re-establish a strong research community in wind energy technologies, across the UK’s leading academic and industrial research organisations.

UK Wind Energy Technologies gives a comprehensive overview of the range of wind energy research undertaken in the UK under Phases 1 & 2 to achieve this goal. Specific topics covered in the book include: wind resource assessment, turbine array layout, environmental interactions, control of turbines, drive train reliability and condition monitoring, turbine array electrical connection, power transmission to grid, assessment of operations and maintenance strategies, and the analysis of turbine foundations and structures. Since the completion of Phase 2 the Supergen Wind consortium partners have formed a networking Hub, which is now the principal national coordinating body for academic research into wind energy in the UK.

This book will be of interest to researchers and engineers from industry and academia and also provides workers from other countries with an overview of the range of activity within the UK resulting from the SUPERGEN Wind programme to date.
