Grid Integration of Wind Energy Conversion Systems
Siegfried HeierISBN: 0470868996;
Wind energy is a reliable, natural and renewable electrical power supply. The high installed capacity of today’s wind turbines and decreasing plant costs have shown that wind power can be competitive with conventional, more heavily polluting, fuels in the long term. Focusing on the electrical engineering aspects of wind energy, this completely revised edition provides a detailed treatment of electrical and mechanical components and their interdependency, power control and supervision in wind power plants, and the grid integration facility. The book incorporates all the recent technical developments in electrical power conversion systems and essential operating conditions. Provides guidelines for the design, construction and installation of wind power plants Presents the history of wind technology, wind resources and economics of wind energy generation Introduces operating results and cost considerations Describes the fundamental characteristics and...
