Description

Power Extraction and Conversion of Renewable Energy: Wind, Solar P.V. and Fuel Cells provides a detailed analysis of the various power converter operations fed by solar PV and other renewable energies. Practical aspects addressing the behavior of systems, such as the operating point on source characteristics and the buckling or boosting of power converters when power converters are considered, as are the fundamentals to effective use and applications of renewables. Computer simulation models for typical systems give the reader a deeper insight and “feel” for the actual systems the book details. It provides readers with a tool to develop, design and achieve successful power extraction.

Renewable energy alternatives are fast becoming viable options to battle conventional fossil fuels shortcomings, such as pollution, cost and limited reserves. Understanding the requirements and source characteristics for successful power electronics and their application is pivotal to extracting power successfully.

Key Features

  • Uniquely analyzes converters for renewable energy application with the practical characteristics of renewable sources
  • Includes simulation models of complete systems and solved numerical problems to aid with understanding the dynamics and analysis of renewable sources when integrated with power converters
  • Features international standards of renewable systems throughout, guiding industrial system design
