This important book presents a selection of new research on wind turbine technology, including aerodynamics, generators and gear systems, towers and foundations, control systems, and environmental issues. This book introduces some of the basic principle of wind turbine design. The different chapters discuss ways to analyze wind turbine performance, approaches for wind turbine improvement, fault detection in wind turbines, and how to mediate the adverse effects of wind turbine use. The book is broken into four sections: the first focuses on wind turbine blade design, the second goes into detail on generators and gear systems, the third focuses on wind turbine towers and foundations, the fourth is on control systems, and the final section discusses some of the environmental issues. This informative book: • introduces the principles of wind turbine design • covers methods for analysis of wind turbine performance • discusses approaches for wind turbine improvement and optimization • covers fault detection in wind turbines • discusses mediating the adverse effects of wind turbine use and installation
