About this Item

To abate the global climate change, wind power is developing very fast around the world, and India is one of the leading countries in this field. In just a few decades, wind power has developed from an alternative energy source to a new fast growing industrial branch. This book gives a wide and deep introduction to most aspects of this renewable energy source. Different types of wind turbines and their components are described in detail. The electrical system of wind turbines as well as its adaptation to the grid are emphasised. The wind climate, the wind resources, the power in the wind and how to find and utilise sites with the best wind conditions, is another area that is discussed in detail. The configuration and selection of wind power plants that suit local wind conditions and the measures to make these plants operate effectively and efficiently, are the other aspects that have been dealt with comprehensively. To keep India ahead always in wind power development, energy policy and promotional strategies are also described in this book. This book should be a compulsory reading for all who are engaged in the wind power business as well as for the university students pursuing energy studies, policy makers, grid operators, and all those who want to be in the ongoing energy revolution to generate inexpensive and clean power from renewables.
