Wind Energy

Publisher: John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

Wind power is set to become one of the major energy resources of the future.
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 journal.

Considerable emphasis will be placed on technical applications papers which
describe progress in a way which will appeal to a wide readership. The scope
extends to include contributions of a more general nature, addressing
operating experience, environmental studies, economic aspects and
sociopolitical issues in a 'Broader Perspectives' section.

The international Editorial Board presiding over the journal plays an
essential role in the rigorous peer-reviewing of contributions to ensure
delivery of high-quality and useful information.

Principal Topics:

* Wind rotor technology - aerodynamics, aeroacoustics, wakes, blade design.
* Structural and mechanical engineering of wind power - drive trains,
hydraulics, fluid mechanics and mechanical components.
* 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
* 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.
