James F. Manwell, Jon G. McGowan, Anthony L. Rogers Wind energy's best-selling textbook- fully revised. This must-have second edition includes up-to-date data, diagrams, illustrations and thorough new material on: the fundamentals of wind turbine aerodynamics; wind turbine testing and modelling; wind turbine design standards; offshore wind energy; special purpose applications, such as energy storage and fuel production. Fifty additional homework problems and a new appendix on data processing make this comprehensive edition perfect for engineering students. Two completely new chapters covering the fundamentals of data collection and analysis, computer codes and wind turbine design and testing, the authors draw on substantial practical experience to provide a highly accessible introduction to the cross-disciplinary field of wind engineering. "provides a wealth of information and is an excellent reference book for people interested in the subject of wind energy." (IEEE Power & Energy Magazine, November/December 2003) "deserves a place in the library of every university and college where renewable energy is taught." (The International Journal of Electrical Engineering Education, Vol.41, No.2 April 2004) "a very comprehensive and well-organised treatment of the current status of wind power." (Choice, Vol. 40, No. 4, December 2002)
