Wind energy is a reliable, natural and renewable electrical power supply. The high installed capacity of today’s wind turbines and decreasing plant costs have shown that wind power can be competitive with conventional, more heavily polluting, fuels in the long term.

Focusing on the electrical engineering aspects of wind energy, this completely revised edition provides a detailed treatment of electrical and mechanical components and their interdependency, power control and supervision in wind power plants, and the grid integration facility. The book incorporates all the recent technical developments in electrical power conversion systems and essential operating conditions.Provides guidelines for the design, construction and installation of wind power plantsPresents the history of wind technology, wind resources and economics of wind energy generationIntroduces operating results and cost considerationsDescribes the fundamental characteristics and theoretical tools of electrical and mechanical componentsDiscusses conventional and new types of generators, converters and power electronicsOffers a comprehensive treatment of grid integration including the effect of power fluctuations on harmonicsFocuses on improved use of grid capacities and grid support for fixed-and variable-speed controlled wind power plantsOutlines power conditioning and control systems to ensure the safe operation of plants

Fully revised and updated, this new edition will continue to be the definitive resource for researchers and practitioners involved in the planning, installation and grid integration of wind turbines and power plants. The thorough approach will also prove highly beneficial to university students and practitioners in wind engineering, turbine design and manufacture and electrical power engineering.

"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 books is an excellent guide for practicing 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."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
