This book focuses on the renewable generation technology and provides a detailed overview of the state-of-the-art technology today and looking into the future. Written by leading experts in the field of power electronics, this book covers a broad range of renewable energy topics such as fuel cells, wave energy, batteries, and also how to integrate the technology into a microgrid. Two simulation projects are available on PV and wind generators, with models in MATLAB and Simulink, which will allow the reader to design for installation a PV and small scale wind turbine system.
