Highlighting the capabilities, limitations, and benefits of wind power, Wind Turbine Technology gives you a complete introduction and overview of wind turbine technology and wind farm design and development. It identifies the critical components of a wind turbine, describes the functional capabilities of each component, and examines the latest performance parameters and procurement specifications for these components.

From cutting-edge design aspects to experimental data, this comprehensive reference contains eight chapters—each dedicated to a specific design aspect of wind turbine technology. It examines potential wind turbine installation configurations, along with the structural requirements for the tower and nacelle. The book also:

  • Presents site wind speed prediction techniques
  • Addresses the integration of wind farms into the electrical power system, including power quality and system stability
  • Describes wind speed frequency distribution and the structure of turbulence
  • Details design and analysis techniques, as well as the functions of wind turbine controllers

The book uses a conventional nomenclature and consistent sets of symbols and units throughout to present the information in a manner that’s easy to understand. It also explains how to compare electrical energy generation costs from wind turbine installation with those of other renewable energy sources.
