Wind Turbine Design - With Emphasis on Darrieus Concept
A significant contribution to the development of wind energy is represented by the book Wind Turbine Design - With Emphasis on Darrieus Concept, International Polytechnic Press, June 2002. Unique in its kind worldwide, this book, containing Professor Ion Paraschivoiu's original research over 25 years in the field of wind energy, is of great interest to students in Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering, professional engineers, university professors and researchers, government and industry. It is also useful to all researchers which use theoretical, computational and experimental methods in wind turbine design and wind energy development. This book is also translated in Japanese and has been published in Japan by Index Press in Tokyo.
Development of a simulation environment for the IEC certification of VAWT according to the IEC 61400 standard
The method has been developed according to the specific needs of the certification process and throughout its development, the aerodynamic results of the method have been compared with numerical and experimental data found in the literature. The developed aerodynamic methods are the current state of the art and will be the first of their kind to be applied in the IEC certification context of vertical axis wind turbines. Furthermore to our knowledge the developed tool is the only tool available that is capable of certifying VAWT.
