All the details of Wind Turbine Structures and installation are covered in my article titled Installation and Test Experience with a 200-kw Wind Turbine Generator". This article appears in Volume 41 of Proceedings of the American Power Conference 1979 Page 515 to Page 517 inclusive. Another article, which I co-authored with Naval Sea Systems Command Reserve Officer Rolf O. Kotacka, appears in the September 1990 issue of the Naval Engineers Journal , pages 32 to 36 inclusive, when I spent 5 years with the Machinery Technology Division, Electrical Systems Department as a Principal Engineer in Westinghouse Electric Corporation.
