Alternative Energy Systems: Electrical Integration and Utilisation covers the proceedings of the conference held at the Coventry (Lanchester) Polytechnic Coventry, England from 10th to 12th of September 1984. The book presents 24 papers that tackle alternative energy systems and their electrical integration and utilization. The text covers different alternative energy sources, such as hydro, solar, wind, wave, and waste materials. The book discusses the practical, technical, and economic aspects of alternatives energy systems and their electrical integration and utilization. The book will be of great use to individuals who are interested in the application of alternative energy systems.
