Small Wind and Hydrokinetic Turbines (EBOOK)

small_wind_and HydrokineticPhilip Clausen, Jonathan Whale, and David Wood

There is huge potential for smaller wind turbines to provide clean energy around the world. Small wind turbines come in a variety of designs, and have similarities in principles and technology to small hydrokinetic turbines (SHKTs). SHKTs, in turn, can play an important role in hydropower. Small wind and hydrokinetic systems can even work together, for example, to power farms, communities, campuses, rural as well as remote rural areas, and island regions.

This concise book, written by experts in the field, provides an in-depth overview of small turbines for wind and hydropower. Chapters cover resource assessment for wind and water, turbine technology, design of vertical and horizontal axis turbines, blade element analysis, vibration-based energy harvesting, very low head turbines, diffuser augmented wind turbines, and numerous case studies.

Small Wind and Hydrokinetic Turbines is a valuable summary for researchers involved with small wind turbines and SHKT development and deployment, both in academia and industry, for research on powering remote areas, as well as for advanced students and manufacturers of turbines.
