The use of the wind as an energy source is increasing and growing worldwide. Wind energy is an important non-fossil option to supplement fossil (coal, natural gas and oil) and nuclear fuels for the generation of electricity. Many parts of the world, particularly the coastlines of Western Europe, North Africa, North and South America, India, Eastern Russia, China, the Philippines, Australia and New Zealand, experience a high annual incidence of wind energy. The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, together with the Republic of Ireland form a particularly windy location, being favoured with strong westerly winds. The technology of the design and installation of wind turbines and wind farms are, in fact, well established. Operational practice, though, is still being developed as engineers learn by experience. Contents: History and Development of Wind Converters; Theory of Wind Converters; Past and Present Wind Energy Turbines; The Location and Siting of Wind Turbines; Power Flow in Electrical Transmission and Distribution Systems; Electrical Generator Machines in Wind Energy Systems; Power Electronic Converters in Wind Energy Systems; Wind Generation into an Electrical Power System; Environmental Aspects of Wind Generation & Economic Aspects of Wind Energy.
