Title: Handbook on Renewable Energy Sources
Abstract: Renewable Energy Technology handbook - Effects of environmental, economic, social, political and technical factors have led to the rapid deployment of various sources of renewable energy - based power generation. The incorporation of these generation technologies have led to the development of a broad array of new methods and tools to integrate this new form of generation into the power system network. This book, arranged into six sections, tries to highlight various renewable energy based generation technologies. Handbook of Renewable Energy Technology - Section 1 provides a general overview of the wind power technology, where the classification of wind turbines based on generators, power electronic converters, and grid connection is described in detail. Section 2 is on solar energy. Although sun charts are widely used, there are situations where charts are inadequate and precise computations are preferred. Section 3 focuses on bio-mass energy. Chapter 14 presents biomass as a source of energy which stores solar energy in chemical form in plant and animal materials. It is one of the most commonly used, but precious and versatile resource on earth, and has been used for energy purposes since the Stone Age. Section 4 is based on small hydro and ocean-based energies. Section 5 is devoted to the simulation tools for renewable energy systems, distributed generation (DG) and renewable energy integration in electricity markets. Section 6 covers a range of assorted topics on renewable energy, such as power electronics, induction generators, doubly-fed induction generators (DFIG), power quality instrumentation for renewable energy systems and energy planning issues.
