Non -destructive Testing and Condition Monitoring Techniques for Renewable Energy Industry Assets integrates state-of-the-art information and discusses future developments and their significance to the improvement of the renewable energy industry. Renewable energy assets are complex systems with several critical components that require inspection and adequate maintenance in order to ensure their high availability and uninterrupted operation. This is the first book to apply NDT and condition monitoring to these complex systems.
- Covers inspection and condition monitoring for a broad range of renewable energy systems, including wind turbines, wave energy devices, CSP and photovoltaic plants, and biofuel/biomass power plants
- Includes a review of common types of NDT techniques
- Discusses future developments in NDT and condition monitoring for renewable energy systems
