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 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.
