  • Wind Energy: Renewable Energy and the Environment

    Due to the mounting demand for energy and increasing population of the world, switching from nonrenewable fossil fuels to other energy sources is not an option—it is a necessity. Focusing on a cost-effective option for the generation of electricity, Wind Energy: Renewable Energy and the Environment covers all facets of wind energy and wind ...

  • SIMAHPP - Hydropower projects feasibility simulator

    SIMAHPP is a windows based software designed to simulate and assess the feasibility of hydropower projects, particularly for small-scale hydro projects with a capacity of up to 10 MW. It is a multi-site, multi-option simulator intended to solve a wide range of problems such as determining design flow to chose appropriate hydro turbine, optimized ...

  • Cyclic Stress-Strain Behavior: Analysis, Experimentation, and Failure Prediction

    Fifteen papers treat time-dependent, notch, cumulative effects of cyclic stress-strain. Of significant benefit to designers of nuclear reactors, steam and gas turbines, aircraft and jet structure ...

  • Eco-Economy: Building an Economy for the Earth

    For the first time since the oil age began, the world has the technology to wean itself from petroleum coming from the politically volatile Middle East.A combination of wind turbines, solar cells, hydrogen generators, and fuel cell engines offers not only energy independence, but an alternative to climate-disrupting fossil fuels.The global economy ...

  • API STD 611 For Petroleum Refining Standards

    ScopePurposeThis standard covers the minimum requirements for general-purpose steam turbines. These requirements include basic design, materials, related lubrication systems, controls, auxiliary equipment and accessories.Note: A bullet (•) at the beginning of a paragraph indicates that either a decision is required or further ...

  • Wind Turbine Operation in Electric Power Systems

    This is a comprehensive approach to Wind Turbine Generator Systems (WTGS) and their operation in dynamic electric power system analysis. The presented advanced models arose from the author´s research. They describe the complicated dynamical system behavior of wind turbines much better than the over-simplified static models. In particular, the ...

  • Wind Energy

    This book comprises reports on basic research, as well as research related to the practical exploitation and application of wind energy. 'Wind Energy' comprehensively describes the atmospheric turbulent wind condition on different time scales, and the interaction of wind turbines with both wind and water flows, which are significant factors to ...
