9783642271502: Wind Turbines: Fundamentals, Technologies, Application, Economics

Wind Turbines addresses all those professionally involved in research, development, manufacture and operation of wind turbines. It provides a cross-disciplinary overview of modern wind turbine technology and an orientation in the associated technical, economic and environmental fields. It is based on the author's experience gained over decades designing wind energy converters with a major industrial manufacturer and, more recently, in technical consulting and in the planning of large wind park installations, with special attention to economics. The second edition accounts for the emerging concerns over increasing numbers of installed wind turbines. In particular, an important new chapter has been added which deals with offshore wind utilisation. All advanced chapters have been extensively revised and in some cases considerably extended

From the Back Cover:

"Wind Turbines" addresses all those professionally involved in research, development, manufacture and operation of wind turbines. It provides a cross-disciplinary overview of modern wind turbine technology and an orientation in the associated technical, economic and environmental fields. 

In its revised third edition, special emphasis has been given to the latest trends in wind turbine technology and design, such as gearless drive train concepts, as well as on new fields of application, in particular the offshore utilisation of wind energy.

The author has gained experience over decades designing wind energy converters with a major industrial manufacturer and, more recently, in technical consulting and in the planning of large wind park installations, with special attention to economics.

Review:

From the reviews of the third edition:

“It is a complete yet concise overview and study of the field, its history and all aspects of modern wind turbine technology. Aimed more at scientists and engineers ... Hau starts with a list of commonly-used symbols and ends with a detailed chapter on the various facets of turbine economics. ... this is a truly comprehensive sourcebook of value to anyone involved in the research, development, manufacture and operation of on- or offshore wind turbines.” (Real Power, Issue 2, 2013)

From the reviews of the second edition:

"This wide-ranging book, the product of over a quarter century’s experience, will be of use to any physicist with an interest in wind power electricity generation ... . Some of its sections could well act as a source for solution by physics undergraduates and for more extended project work in a number of areas ... . It would seem an excellent work of reference ... to university and college libraries." (Dr D.G.C Jones, Contemporary Physics, Vol. 48 (4), 2007)

"Erich Hau’s Wind Turbines attempts to provide a complete but brief overview and study of the field and its history. The book begins with a list of commonly used symbols, a delight for engineering scientists. ... In conclusion, this book is well put together ... . If one wants a summary introduction to wind turbine issues, this book would suffice." (Ramani Ramakrishnan, International Journal of Acoustics and Vibration, Vol. 12 (1), 2007)
