The increase of energy consumption as well as the need to reduce green-house emissions trigger the shift from a fossil-fuel based society towards a sustainable society. With a constant increase in the installed power capacity, wind plays a key role in the global energy framework. The improvement of the technology opens up new targets for the...

Material bend-twist coupling has been widely studied in the research community as a passive control mechanism for a wind turbine. However, there is a lack of research in incorporating it in the rotor design process, with little research being conducted for its application to small wind turbines. The present study focuses on this issue by...

Wind energy today is synonymous with the extraction of energy from wind via the deployment of groups of large multi-megawatt wind turbines. Nonetheless Small wind turbines (SWT) have been also designed for the built environment in order to extract energy from the wind, while being at close proximity to buildings. Despite the fact that their...

Wind energy accounts for an increasing percentage of the energy supplied to the electricity network. Electricity generation from wind is now cheaper than other renewables and almost cost competitive with other conventional sources of electricity generation. However, this impressive growth is largely due to advances in large wind turbines,...

Small wind turbines have been in existence for several years but it seems they are not used where they are needed the most-distant off grid communities in developing countries. Cost and maintenance have been attributed to be reasons for this. One of its expensive constituents is its generator. The automotive alternator is considered as an...
