Comprehensive! This book helped me ace my mechanical engineering senior design project every step of the way. The material is easy to grasp for anyone with a basic background in math/science; and learning about how this stuff works is fascinating! The chapter on aerodynamics alone kept me writing computer codes for months. The author’s writing style is modern and easy to follow.

Midwest Book Review says:

Fifty new homework problems and a new appendix on data processing are just a few of the updates The second updated edition of WIND ENERGY EXPLAINED: THEORY, DESIGN AND APPLICATION includes the latest data, illustrations and all new material on wind turbines, offshore wind energy, and more. Fifty new homework problems and a new appendix on data processing are just a few of the updates and expansions for this fine edition, recommended for any college-level science and natural resources collection.

Simply the best-written text on wind enegy! This book is absolutely the best book I have owned on the subject. I love the simplicity of the text, clarity of the illustrations, and above all the fact that it covered all the necessary areas on the subject. I strongly recommend it to anyone interested in expanding their knowledge on wind energy.
