Aerodynamics of Wind Turbines by Martin O.L. Hansen is the essential book for the fundamental solutions to efficient wind turbine design. Topics covered in this eBook include increasing mass flow through the turbine, performance at low and high wind speeds, assessment of the extreme conditions under which the turbine will perform and the theory for calculating the lifetime of the turbine. The classical Blade Element Momentum method is also covered, as are eigen modes and the dynamic behavior of a turbine. Aerodynamics of Wind Turbines by Martin O.L. Hansen eBook includes a description of the effects of the dynamics and how this can be modeled in an aero elastic code, which is widely used in the design and verification of modern wind turbines.
