In the contemporary world, wind energy is emerging as one of the most viable alternatives to meet the challenge of increasing energy demand, particularly electrical energy generation.
It is clean, fuel-free, available in almost every country in the world, and in abundance off-shore. This book, now in its third edition, covers the essential engineering principles, theories and best practices for wind energy development for electricity generation.
Recent developments in wind energy are covered. The book includes sections on remote sensing application and re-powering. It is intended as a text for the undergraduate and postgraduate students of mechanical/electrical engineering and students of energy studies.
It will also serve as a handbook and reference for practicing engineers and professionals in the field of wind energy.
