Wind Energy Meteorology: Atmospheric Physics for Wind Power Generation,Second Edition By Stefan Emeis
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 276 Pages | ISBN : 331972858X | 12.52 MB
This book offers an introduction to the meteorological boundary conditions for power generation from wind – both onshore and offshore, and provides meteorological information for the planning and running of this important renewable energy source. It includes the derivation of wind laws and wind-profile descriptions, especially those above the logarithmic surface layer, and discusses winds over complex terrains and nocturnal low-level jets. This updated and expanded second edition features new chapters devoted to the efficiency of large wind parks and their wakes and to offshore wind energy.
