What is it about?

To develop a sustainable and efficient windmill, research on low cost highly efficient wind turbine nacelle cooling systems has become particularly important. In this review, the prominent waste heat producing sources and the extensively used cooling systems are described. A detailed analysis of the advantages and limitations of each system and the use of various cooling fluids as cooling medium in wind turbine nacelle cooling systems is also discussed.

Why is it important?

The thermal load in the wind turbine nacelle is increasing due to the higher dissipation of heat from the various components in the high unit capacity wind mill. With the motive to develop a sustainable and efficient windmill, research on low cost highly efficient wind turbine nacelle cooling systems has become particularly important.

Perspectives

Heat removal from Wind Turbine Nacelle is very important factor for its sustainable functioning. I hope this article is helpful for all the stake holders in this field for making Wind Turbines a sustainable energy generating option.
