This book, now in its Second Edition, continues to give a wider and deeper knowledge about various aspects of wind power for electricity generation than the earlier edition. Based on the feedback from different quarters, most of the chapters of this second edition has been enriched and modified. On popular demand from the mechanical engineers, an additional chapter on ‘Gear Systems in Wind Turbines’ has also been added. This revised version will continue to enlighten electrical, mechanical, instrumentation, electronics and civil engineers as well. Needless to say, this will be an asset even to those who already have the first edition of this book.
What do Reviewers say?
“This massive work is a welcome addition to any wind energy library--well illustrated with splendid photographs and drawings that I haven’t seen in any other book. An ardent learner can lucidly understand the basic wind turbine theory, design, and project development. I wish I’d written it!”
—Paul Gipe, USA, Author, Advocate & Renewable Industry Analyst, California
“Dr Joshua Earnest, author of numerous books on wind power, strikes a chord with everyone willing to think deeply about renewable energy and wind power in particular, as he tackles the most profound issues of wind power design and implementation. It is a true pleasure to read this extraordinary and inspiring ‘bible of wind power’.”
—Lars Hallén, Sweden, Founder & Chairman of LIFE Academy, Karlstad
“First-ever reference book from India with a highly practical stint and spread of inter-disciplinary ‘Know How’, ‘Know Why’ and ‘Deeper Knowledge’ for anyone who wants to Win with Wind Power Generation.”
—Dr. S. Gomathinayagam, India, Director General, National Institute of Wind Energy (NIWE) (formerly C-WET)
“This book is one of the most comprehensive books on wind energy, especially regarding the electrical systems of large wind power plants. I’m very pleased to see this new edition.”
—Sven Ruin, Sweden, Consultant for TEROC & Chairman of the Swedish Wind Power Association’s section on small-scale wind power
