Electricity Transmission, Distribution and Storage Systems (Woodhead Publishing Series in Energy)by Ziad Melhem
Synopses & Reviews
Electricity transmission and distribution networks carry electricity from the suppliers to demand sites. Due to materials aging and performance issues, losses can amount to about 10% of the total electricity generated. Advanced grid technologies are therefore being developed to sustain higher network efficiency, while also maintaining power quality and security. Advances in these fields are aimed at helping to de-carbonize national power grids by providing a stable and sustainable infrastructure that enables alternative approaches to power generation and energy management.
The editor and specialist contributors present a comprehensive review of the materials, architecture and performance of electricity transmission and distribution networks, and the application and integration electricity storage systems. The first section introduces the fundamental problems facing electricity networks, including the growth of renewable and distributed generation sources, while the second part reviews the development of transmission and distribution systems, advanced materials and network components. This coverage is extended in the conclusion, with chapters reviewing materials and applications of electricity storage systems for use in networks, for renewable and distributed generation plants, in buildings and vehicles, and other advanced electricity storage devices.
