Synopses & Reviews
This book deals with Wind-Energy systems and their implementation into the grid, with focus on electrical engineering. Starting from a view on wind as a prominent source of renewable energy, it describes properties and performance of wind turbines, electrical generators and power electronic converters which are the main components of wind energy systems. Much attention is spent on system control, grid implementation and aspects of power quality. In this way, the book provides fundamental knowledge for graduate students, designers and practicing engineers
This book deals with the electronics of Wind-Energy systems and their implementation into the grid. Starting from an overview on energy conversion and general concepts for Wind Energy systems, the concept, design and control of the electrical components are treated: generators, converters and storage devices. Much attention is spent on the implementation of Wind turbines and the requirements for power quality are non-trivial tasks. In this way, the book provides the fundamental knowledge for designer and developer of wind energy systems.
