About this book
The 1999 European Wind Energy Conference and Exhibition was organized to review progress, and present and discuss the wind energy business, technology and science for the future. The Proceedings contain a selection of over 300 papers from the conference. They represent a significant update to the understanding of this increasingly important field of energy generation and cover a full range of topics.
A typical wind turbine consists of the rotor (blades and hub), speed increaser ( gearbox), conversion system, controls, and tower (Figure 5.9). ... After so much twist, it must be removed by yawing the turbine or by a manual disconnect. For large ...

About this book
Practical and reader-friendly, the SMART GRID HOME explains how the average homeowner can adapt and retrofit an existing residence to take advantage of the energy and cost saving technology now available as part of the development of the Smart Grid. Topics covered include reducing home energy consumption by eliminating heat loss and heat transfer, reducing the power-on time of electronics and other power equipment without loss of convenience, automating home electrical systems to maximize energy conservation, evaluating electrical devices for energy efficiency, developing energy conservation strategies for replacing inefficient appliances, and timing the use of electricity in the home to save both energy and money. Throughout each chapter, the reader is provided with the information needed to take advantage of utility and government incentive programs to offset some or all of the cost. Coverage also includes the selection and installation of renewable energy source electrical generating systems such as photovoltaic solar generating systems, solar water heating systems, and wind turbine generating systems. In addition, the book describes how these home-based renewable energy systems can be connected to the smart grid so that the homeowner will be paid by the public utility.Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.
