Power Conversion and Control of Wind Energy Systems
This is unique book that focuses on the latest power conversation and control technology. Topics included in the book are well organized and explained with physical explanations, mathematical analysis, computer simulation and experimental result. It can be referred by designers of wind generators; graduate and senior graduate students as it contains both theoretical and practical explanation
It has been divided in 9 chapters for explaining step by step key concepts such as wind turbine technology, wind energy conversion system configurations, grid code, fundamentals of wind energy conversion system control including wind turbine components and aerodynamics, wind generators and modeling with types and reference frame transformations and power converters in wind energy conversions systems along with AC voltage controllers, interleaved boost converters, two level voltage source converts and three level natural point clamped converters.
Later chapters are based on the concepts of wind energy system configuration, Fixed-Speed Induction Generator WECS and Variable-Speed Wind Energy Systems, Doubly-Fed Induction Generator Based WECS and Variable-Speed Wind Energy Systems with Synchronous Generators.
Concepts are explained with the illustrations, case studies and more than 100 solved problems, simulations and experiments. It is reference book for the researchers and students who want to dip into the field of conversion energy and its control.
