Wind energy design / Thomas Corke and Robert Nelson.

By: Corke, Thomas C
Contributor(s): Nelson, Robert C, 1942-
Material type: TextTextPublisher: Boca Raton, FL : CRC Press / Taylor & Francis Group, c.2018Description: xxvi, 326 p. : ill. ; 24 cmISBN: 9781138096028Subject(s): Wind turbines -- Design and construction | Wind power plants -- Design and construction | | Engineering, Electrical March2019DDC classification: 621.3 Summary: "Wind Energy Systems is designed for undergraduate engineering courses, with a focus on multidisciplinary design of a wind energy system. The text covers basic wind power concepts and components - wind characteristics and modeling, rotor aerodynamics, lightweight flexible structures, wind farms, aerodynamics, wind turbine control, acoustics, energy storage, and economics. These topics are applied to produce a new conceptual wind energy design, showing the interplay of various design aspects in a complete system. An ongoing case study demonstrates the integration of various component topics, and MATLAB examples are included to show computerized design analysis procedures and techniques."--Provided by publisher.
