Summary:Wind Energy: An Introduction covers wind energy system types, operation, modeling, analysis, integration, and control. Beginning with a history of the development of wind energy, this comprehensive book: Explains the aerodynamic theories that govern the operation of wind turbines ; presents wind energy statistics to address the stochastic nature of wind speed ; employs the statistical modeling of wind speed to evaluate sites for wind energy generation ; highlights the differences between the most common types of wind turbines ; analyzes the main power electronic circuits used in wind energy ; details the induction, synchronous, and permanent magnet generators from the basic principle of induced voltage to the steady-state and dynamic models ; explores the operation, stability, control, and protection of type 1, 2, 3, and 4 wind turbines ;discusses the main integration challenges of wind energy systems with electric utility systems ; features numerous models, illustrations, real-world examples, and exercise problems ; includes a solutions manual and figure slides with qualifying course adoption. [This book] requires a basic knowledge of electric circuit theory, making it an ideal text for students at the senior-undergraduate and graduate levels. In addition, the book provides practicing engineers with a handy professional reference.
