Environmental concerns about rising pollution levels and climate change have focused the world’s attention on the necessary reduction of harmful emissions from energy-producing processes. The generation of electricity from renewable sources such as wind offers considerable scope for the production of clean and sustainable power. However, in order for the technology to be economically viable, we need to develop efficient conversion systems that integrate this energy into existing power supply structures. Fully revised and updated, Grid Integration of Wind Energy Conversion Systems, Second Edition provides a comprehensive treatment of the field, taking into account important innovations in this progressive technology. With new material on energy converters, improved grid capacity, changes in legislation, and economic considerations, this text outlines practical ways in which wind power can make a major contribution in a competitive energy market.
This book is an excellent guide for practising engineers and researchers working with wind power plants and their integration into the electrical grid. It is also a valuable resource for graduate students taking courses in wind and power engineering.About the Author:
