Abstract

The rapid growth of wind power and the implications of this on future power system planning, operation and control has become an even greater challenge in today's liberated electricity market conditions. This essential new book examines the main problems of wind power integration and guides the reader through a number of the most recent solutions based on current research and operational experience of wind power integration. This new series of books from the IET brings together the engineering aspects of renewable energy technology, power generation and systems integration. Covering all aspects of renewable and sustainable power and highlighting the key principles behind each technology, its state of development and its relevance in the power industry. With energy and sustainability being areas of primary concern, these books are practical in approach and appeal to specialists and non-specialists alike, providing a thorough understanding to the economical and environmental issues as well as key engineering features.
