From the Wiley-Blackwell website for the journal:

“Wind power is one of the major energy resources that are important components of future energy scenarios.”

“Principal Topics

  • Wind rotors and blades – aerodynamics, aero-elastics, aero-servo-elasticity, aero-acoustics, wakes, rotor and blade design.
  • Structural and mechanical components modeling and design.
  • Electrical engineering of wind power – electrical components, power electronics and controls, generators, grid connection, integration and control of wind power plants.
  • Dynamics and control – control algorithms, sensors, actuators, and load mitigation strategies.
  • Development of resource assessment techniques- prediction, modelling, atmospheric physics, wind farm planning, siting (including off-shore developments), economics and environmental issues.
  • Concept innovations, modelling, 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.
  • Operations and maintenance – reliability, maintainability, condition monitoring, predictive maintenance, and economics.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (1998) to present.
