Guidelines for Design of Wind Turbines

The book Guidelines for Design of Wind Turbines is a compilation of engineering knowledge and excellent for people working with Design of Wind Turbines. The guidelines give a detailed introduction to many subjets covering engineering wind turbine subjects.The book is an indispensable reference book for professionel wind turbine engineers.

Besides, it is the co-operation between Det Norske Veritas and the former Risø National Laboratory (now DTU Wind Energy) that has lead to the creation of the book. The writing of the book is based on funding from the Danish Energy Agency.

More about the Guidelines for Design of Wind Turbines and its content:

The book is divided into 11 chapters and explains specific subjects of wind turbine engineering. In addition, there is a number of appendices which addresses aspects the referes to wind tubines and engineering in general.
