Wind Turbines addresses all those professionally involved in research, development, manufacture and operation of wind turbines. It provides a cross-disciplinary overview of modern wind turbine technology and an orientation in the associated technical, economic and environmental fields. It is based on the author's experience gained over decades designing wind energy converters with a major industrial manufacturer and, more recently, in technical consulting and in the planning of large wind park installations, with special attention to economics. The second edition accounts for the emerging concerns over increasing numbers of installed wind turbines. In particular, an important new chapter has been added which deals with offshore wind utilisation. All advanced chapters have been extensively revised and in some cases considerably extended

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews of the second edition:

"This wide-ranging book, the product of over a quarter century's experience, will be of use to any physicist with an interest in wind power electricity generation ... . Some of its sections could well act as a source for solution by physics undergraduates and for more extended project work in a number of areas ... . It would seem an excellent work of reference ... to university and college libraries." (Dr D.G.C Jones, Contemporary Physics, Vol. 48 (4), 2007)

"Erich Hau's Wind Turbines attempts to provide a complete but brief overview and study of the field and its history. The book begins with a list of commonly used symbols, a delight for engineering scientists. ... In conclusion, this book is well put together ... . If one wants a summary introduction to wind turbine issues, this book would suffice." (Ramani Ramakrishnan, International Journal of Acoustics and Vibration, Vol. 12 (1), 2007)
