Wind Energy offers a major forum for the reporting of advances in this
rapidly developing technology with the goal of realising the world-wide
potential to harness clean energy from the wind. The journal will aim to reach
all those with an interest in this field from academic research, industrial
development through to practical applications of wind turbines. Contributions
across the spectrum of scientific and engineering disciplines concerned with the
advancement of wind power conversion technology are an essential feature of the
- Wind rotor technology -
aerodynamics, aeroacoustics, wakes, blade design.
- Structural and mechanical
engineering of wind power - drive trains, hydraulics, fluid mechanics and
- Electrical engineering of
wind power - electrical components, power electronics and controls,
generators, grid connection, power transmission and distribution.
- Dynamics and control -
materials, fatigue, testing, reliability and certification.
- Resource assessment -
prediction, modelling, wind farm planning, siting (including off-shore
developments), economics and environmental issues.
- Systems - design,
installation, operation, performance, optimisation and control; small,
hybrid and autonomous systems and applications other than grid connection
such as desalination, water pumping and heating.
