As environmental concerns have focussed attention on the generation of electricity from clean and renewable sources, wind energy has become the world’s fastest growing energy source. The authors draw on substantial practical experience to address the technical, economic and safety issues inherent in the exploitation of wind power in a competitive electricity market. Presenting the reader with all the relevant background information key to understanding the integration of wind power into the power systems, this leading edge text:

***Presents an international perspective on integrating a high penetration of wind power into the power system
***Offers broad coverage ranging from basic network interconnection issues to industry deregulation and future concepts for wind turbines and power systems
***Discusses wind turbine technology, industry standards and regulations along with power quality issues
***Considers future concepts to increase the penetration of wind power in power systems
****Presents models for simulating wind turbines in power systems
***Outlines current research activities


Essential reading for power engineers, wind turbine designers, wind project development and wind energy consultants dealing with the integration of wind power systems into distribution and transmission networks, this text would also be of interest to network engineers working for power utility companies dealing with interconnection issues and graduate students and researchers in the field of wind power and power systems.

Yes. Wind energy has become the fastest growing energy source in the world.

In fact, many countries pay more attention to this new energy.

May you post more about wind power in power system?

ben said...

This is great, wind power has come to surpass other forms of energy and is readliy avavilbale, I wonder if there is a way of increasing production to the fullest using wind.

I wonder if the improvement of the renewable technologies will bring soon any relieve for the poor underdeveloped world; after all we see is that while wind power generation has a positive trend in the rich western countries, the rest of the world, with some few exceptions, still get hold to the idea of development of carbon, oil or hydro projects.
