Description

Power System Energy Storage Technologies provides a comprehensive analysis of various technologies used to store electrical energy on both a small and large scale. Although expensive to implement, energy storage plants can offer significant benefits for the generation, distribution and use of electrical power, and this is particularly important in renewable energy which is intermittent in its supply. Breeze provides an in depth coverage of technologies such as Pumped Storage Hydropower, Compressed-Air Energy Storage, Large Scale Batteries and Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage, while considering their operation, performance, efficiency and the costs associated with their implementation and management.

Key Features

  • Provides description and analysis of various storage technologies such as Pumped Storage Hydropower, Compressed-Air Energy Storage, Large Scale Batteries and Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage
  • Breaks down each storage type and analyses their operation, performance, efficiency and costs
  • Considers how each energy storage plant benefits the generation distribution and use of electric power

Readership

Power generation planners, electrical engineers, students and lecturers of Electrical Engineering and Energy, researchers, academics and the technical community involved in the development and implementation of power generation technologies, and power related engineering disciplines
