About this book

The proposed book provides in-depth discussion on all the major aspects of wind energy conversion technology. Academic and industrial experts share their expertise and experiences in wind energy conversion systems through various chapters grouped in to  eight sections. In contrast with other publications in this area, a detailed section on offshore wind farms is included in this volume. Economic and environmental aspects of wind energy coversion are also given due emphasis, along with the recent trends in wind energy engineering. Though a contributory volume, continuity between chapters and sections are maintained throughout the book.
