Corrections & Updates to Wind Energy for the Rest of Us

Despite a lengthy editing process, a copy editor, and a proofreader, there are invariably typos and other mistakes in a book of this size. If you find further errors or want to suggest changes or corrections, post a message to Paul Gipe. Your help to make Wind Energy for the Rest of Us as error free as possible is appreciated.

All page numbers refer to the print version.

Page 57. Figure 4-7. MAN WKA 60. Würst is mispelled. It should be Wurst in the singular. Apparently my German isn't up to the task here and again on page 412.

Page 78, South of the Border (Enercon) sidebar. Herr Wobben’s first name is misspelled. It is correct, Aloys, elsewhere.

Page 169. Figure 6-31. Tip Speed Ratio, not Ration.

Page 193. Figure 8-3. The colors in the legend are reversed. This is correct in the digital version.

Page 256. Corrected text. First para. following Figure 11-3.

Compare the annual specific yield in Table 11-2 with that in Table 11-1 for an average annual wind speed of 6 m/s: 400 kWh/m²/yr to 570 kWh/m²/yr. The new, high-performance household-size turbines are nearly 50% more efficient at capturing the energy in the wind than those wind turbines available in the 1990s represented in Table 11-1.

Page 476. Table 19-11. Turbine on table title is misspelled as Turbone. This is correct in the digital version.

Page 539. Selected Sources. Unfortunately, URLs change frequently. There are a number of broken links in the print version. These have been corrected in the digital version and were accessed in December 2016.
