About this title


Grid Integration of Wind Energy Conversion Systems Siegfried Heier Kassel University, Germany Translated by Rachel Waddington Swadlincote, UK Cost-effective transmission and distribution of wind power generated electricity presents a stimulating engineering challenge. Grid Integration of Wind Energy Conversion Systems addresses the technical, economic and safety issues inherent in the exploitation of wind power in a competitive electricity market. Features include:

  • Conventional and new types of generators, converters and power electronics
  • Comprehensive treatment of grid integration including the effect of power fluctuations on harmonics
  • Focus on improved use of grid capacities and grid support for fixed-and variable-speed controlled wind power plants
  • Demonstration of impedance changes in the grid caused by the coupling of wind power plants
  • Power conditioning and control systems to ensure the safe operation of plants
  • Discussion of energy results and expectations of profitability
Coverage includes the electrical and mechanical components of wind power plants making the book an asset to graduate students of both engineering disciplines. Illustrated guidance on the design, construction, planning and installation of wind plants will benefit engineers and consultants involved in wind energy development.

From the Back Cover:

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.

Key features:

  • Presents guidelines for the design and installation of wind power plants.
  • Includes information on the latest energy converters, grid compatibility, and remedial measures against grid effects and resonances.
  • Discusses power conditioning and control systems to ensure the safe operation of plants.
  • Considers cost implications and current legislation behind plant construction and maintenance.

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.
