Wind energy literature survey no. 7


In order to help keep readers up-to-date in the field, Wind Energy contains a list of recently published articles drawn from recent issues of the following periodicals: Electric Power Components and Systems, Energy Sources, IEE Proceedings Control Theory and Applications, IEE Proceedings Electric Power Application, IEE Proceedings Generation, Transmission and Distribution, IEEE Control Systems Magazine, IEEE Journal of Oceanic Engineering, IEEE Power and Energy Magazine, IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity, IEEE Transactions on Energy Conversion, IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications, IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics, IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement, IEEE Transactions on Magnetics, IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics, IEEE Transactions on Power Delivery, IEEE Transactions on Power Systems, Journal of Solar Energy Engineering, Journal of Wind Engineering & Industrial Aerodynamics, and Renewable Energy. The survey is limited exclusively to journals not specifically devoted to wind energy and its applications. The survey contains just a portion of what is written on the subject in other journals, and is in no way exhaustive. More publications in these and other journals can be found by internet search machines like ‘Google Scholar’ or ‘Scirus’. The papers are categorized in Aerodynamics/Elastics/Acoustics, Structures/Loads/Fatigue, Performance, Wind, Control, Generators/Converters, Grid Connection, Miscellaneous. Each paper is mentioned only once, although many papers fit in more than one category. Compiled by Remko Gerbenzon and Gijs van Kuik, Duwind, Faculty of Aerospace Engineering, TU Delft, The Netherlands. Please email any suggestions to
