From the reviews of the second edition:“This book was intended for graduate students, practitioners and anyone interested in the subject. … It is well organized and gives the reader enough information to read the book without having any specialized knowledge on wind energy. … Illustrations are plentiful and very good, and equations are clearly stated and easily followed. Furthermore, there are a great number of references at the back of each chapter … . it is a great tool for students, practitioners, and engineers.” (Panos Economou, Noise Control Engineering Journal, Vol. 60 (4), July-August, 2012)
Including contributions from fourteen experts in academia and industry, this book presents a detailed explanation of wind power technology, from first principles through to more advanced concepts. The notes on which this book is based have been used in teaching for over 20 years. Consequently, this work gathers together a large volume of experience in a concise manner, using material from a proven syllabus that can inform students and professionals alike. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

At less than 400 pages this book could easily have had three times its current volume. The authors cannot be complimented enough for restraining themselves and keeping the book short. I was especially impressed by the elegance of their mathematical analysis throughout the book. One can only wonder about the mental effort necessary in order to present the essential material in such a short and precise manner.
There are a few typos in the formulas. Also, this book definitely requires some background in physics (classical mechanics, fluid dynamics),math (calculus, differential equations) and engineering (methods, concepts). Therefore the book is not really suitable as a first introduction to wind power in my opinion, unless you are a true genius.
The inevitable drawback of the short and precise mathematical derivations is that many concepts and formulas must be taken for granted by the reader. This is perfectly fine for the engineer but less appealing to the scientist. However, detailed footnotes and sources at the end of each chapter should enable the reader to dive as deep as he or she wishes.
Although the authors have probably forgotten more on the subject than I will ever learn, I would like to finish with some constructive criticism:
First, the book describes several academic projects of the TU Berlin which are pretty irrelevant for the rest of the world. Secondly, the book almost completely ignores the small but perceptible commercial success of small wind power plants either off-grid or in distributed generation. Third, the book wastes a whole chapter on mechanical wind pumping systems which imo really do not belong into it. That technology is pretty much a stillborn child, anyway, because wind is found up high and water down low. A tried and proven purely mechanical design - where feasible - has been known for more than a century in the form of the American farm windmill. The authors later briefly mention wind-electric pumping applications, which manage to avoid the above fundamental technical problem and would fit much better in with the book's title. Finally, the book would benefit from some detailed datasheets and in-depth comparisons of competing manufacturer's technologies in the medium power class. The table on page 341 is a very encouraging first step in that direction.
Overall this book is a great value for its money and will have a secure place in my library. I can't wait for a revised edition which will hopefully incorporate the latest trends and developments in this complex, rapidly developing technology.
