In order to build a comprehensive model of a power system, full system models for simulation and investigation are often written and built from first principle, to reinforce understanding of power systems modelling.
Simulation of Power System with Renewables is the first book to provide details of modelling and efficient implementation of widely used software Matlab, particularly with a renewable energy driven power system. The book has a step-by-step approach to modelling implementation including all major components used in current power systems operation, giving the reader the opportunity to learn how to gather models for conventional generators, wind farms, solar plants, HVDC links, and FACTS control devices.
This book is a central resource for modelling, building and simulating renewable power systems, guiding researchers and engineer’s through limitations and assumptions created in the model and giving full flexibility to the implementation and analysis of the system
- Presents worked examples and equations in each chapter addressing system limitations and flexibility
- Provides step-by-step guidance for building and simulating models with required data
- Contains various case studies on a number of devices including FACTS, HVDC systems and renewable generation
Power system engineers and researchers, electrical engineers and engineering researchers, soalr energy engineers and those working in the implementation of efficient power systems
