This comprehensive textbook discusses the underlying principles of different types of grid connected renewable energy sources and in particular, the detailed underpinning knowledge required to understand the different types of grid connected wind power plants. A unique feature of this book is that along with every figure title, a brief explanation follows that helps the reader to understand the concepts without going back to the paragraphs again.The saying that a picture is more than a thousand words is evident from the 260 illustrations. The relevant pictures, tables, graphs and ample worked-out examples accelerate the learning. The coverage of software-based computer simulation examples of grid connected wind electrical generators is another special characteristic of this book. Still, another unique feature is the inclusion of a chapter on the much sought after small wind turbine technologies.Designed as a textbook for Renewable Energy courses with emphasis on wind power offered in the undergraduate and diploma engineering programmes in most of the universities of India, the book can serve for the one-semester stream specific course on Renewable Energy or Wind Energy for senior level undergraduate students of electrical, mechanical, electronics and instrumentation engineering as well as for the postgraduate engineering students.I encourage all those who will read this book, will promote both directly and indirectly the use and awareness of wind energy as a clean and viable source of electric power.

-Thomas Ackerman, Ph.D , Wind Power Author and Founder, Energynautics GmbH, GermanyThose who will read this book, will be well prepared to work in the wind power sector and participate in the important task to develop a renewable energy system which can stop the global climate change.

-Tore Wizelius, Wind Power Author, Teacher and Wind Project Developer, SwedenThis book provides a valuable technical information on small wind turbines that will allow students to become amateur wind engineers and entrepreneurs in this growing industry.

-Urban Green Energy, USA"Both small and large wind turbines are a viable source of clean electric power. I am sure that after reading this book, you will gain considerable knowledge on this subject from the distinguished author, Professor Joshua Earnest."

-Sven Ruin, CEO, TEROC Independent Power AB, Sweden"Wind power is acutely needed by the world to tide over the rapidly depleting fossil fuels. This book provides a mine of information on wind power to the students intending to become an amateur wind engineer, start working in the wind industry or start an enterprise for the fastest growing, emerging market of small wind turbines as well"
