Synopsis:

A fully up-to-date, comprehensive wind energy engineering resource

 

This thoroughly updated reference offers complete details on effectively harnessing wind energy as a viable and economical power source. Globally recognized wind expert Pramod Jain clearly explains physics, meteorology, aerodynamics, wind measurement, wind turbines, and electricity. New energy policies and grid integration procedures are covered, including pre-deployment studies and grid modifications. Filled with diagrams, tables, charts, graphs, and statistics, Wind Energy Engineering, Second Edition, is a definitive guide to current developments and emerging technologies in wind energy.

Wind Energy Engineering, Second Edition covers:

  • The worldwide business of wind energy
  • Wind energy basics
  • Meteorological properties of wind and air
  • Wind turbine aerodynamics
  • Turbine blade element models and power curves
  • Wind measurement and reporting
  • Wind resource assessment
  • Advanced resource assessment topics, including wake, losses, and uncertainty
  • Wind turbine generator components
  • Electricity and generator fundamentals
  • Grid integration of wind energy
  • Environmental impact of wind projects
  • Financial modeling, planning, and execution of wind projects
  • Wind energy policy and licensing guidelines

From the Author: The impetus of writing this book was a lack of books on the market that targeted engineers. Specifically, I wanted to write a book that would give an engineer from any discipline sufficient knowledge about the multi-disciplinary field of wind energy.  This book intends to bring to bear at least five disciplines in order to provide a reasonably comprehensive understanding of the field of wind energy.  The five disciplines are Meteorology, Mechanical & Aeronautical engineering, Civil engineering, Electrical engineering and Environmental engineering.  In addition, to these core engineering disciplines, the book has chapters on finance, policy and project management, three business related disciplines that are key to wind energy.I wrote the book with the following audience in mind.  First are engineers and scientists that are in the wind industry, but practice in a narrow segment of the industry that covers their specific discipline. Second are engineers and scientists that want to enter the wind industry. Third are undergraduate engineering students and technical college students that want to learn about the various disciplines in wind energy engineering.  Finally, the intended audience is business people and project managers that work in the wind energy industry.  As an engineer, you will find sufficient detail about each of the topics.  I have kept the level of math to a level that would be comfortable to a practicing engineer.  In areas that require sophisticated math, I have attempted to provide insights into the relationships.Inthe first edition of the book, wind energy policy was not covered; thereforethere was a gaping hole in the book.  Also, the exposition on grid integration of wind power did not cover the detailed studies.  Thesecond edition of the book fills these two gaps--wind energy policy and gridintegration studies.  --Preface of book
