Engineering for sustainability is an emerging theme for the twenty-first century,
and the need for more environmentally benign electric power systems is a critical
part of this new thrust. Renewable energy systems that take advantage of
energy sources that won’t diminish over time and are independent of fluctuations
in price and availability are playing an ever-increasing role in modern power
This is a comprehensive textbook for the new trend of distributed power generation systems and renewable energy sources in electric power systems. It covers the complete range of topics from fundamental concepts to major technologies as well as advanced topics for power consumers.
Electrically powered road vehicles are currently more and more debated and many new prototypes of vehicles and batteries have been presented, e.g. at the 18th International Battery, Hybrid and Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle Symposium and Exhibition in October 2001 in Berlin, Germany, the world’s largest event on this topic under the motto ‘‘Clean and efﬁcient mobility for the millennium’’.
In industrialized countries, distribution systems deliver electricity literally
everywhere, taking power generated at many locations and delivering it to
end users. Generation, transmission, and distribution — of these big three
components of the electricity infrastructure, the distribution system gets the
least attention. Yet, it is often the most critical component in terms of its
effect on reliability and quality of service, cost of electricity, and aesthetic
(mainly visual) impacts on society....
PSAT is a Matlab toolbox for static and dynamic analysis and control of electric power systems. The PSAT project began in September 2001, while I was a Ph.D. candidate at the Universit´ degli Studi di Genova, Italy. The ﬁrst public a version date back to November 2002, when I was a Visiting Scholar at the University of Waterloo, Canada. I am currently maintaining PSAT in the spare time, while I am working as associate professor at the Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha, Ciudad Real, Spain. PSAT is provided free of charge, in the hope it can be useful and other people...
The objective of this book is to present methods of power system analysis and
design, particularly with the aid of a personal computer, in su‰cient depth
to give the student the basic theory at the undergraduate level. The approach
is designed to develop students’ thinking processes, enabling them to reach a
sound understanding of a broad range of topics related to power system
engineering, while motivating their interest in the electrical power industry.
Solar electric plants shall be understood to be photovoltaic energy converters that are able to self-sufﬁciently satisfy a mean energy demand over a signiﬁcant period of time, be it an appliance that is permanently hooked up or just for sporadic power supply of appliances. Such plants have in common that their input and output quantities ﬂuctuate widely. They can therefore only be dimensioned on the basis of a mean value and are not able to satisfy this demand without the possibility to store energy. ...
Like water, food, and air, electrical energy has become an integral
part of daily personal and business lives. People have become so accus-
tomed to fl icking a switch and having instant light, action, or communica-
tion that little thought is given to the process that produces this electrical
energy or how it gets to where it is used. It is unique in that practically all
that is produced is not stored but used instantly in the quantities that are

For simple applications, switching devices such as contactors or solid-state relays can be used to control electrical power. The electrical power in a process can be regulated by varying the ON and OFF times of these devices. But in many processes this provision of energy in large blocks will cause significant variations in the process output. As an example, it would not be possible to control lighting levels simply by using such two-state on/off switching elements. Neither could good temperature controllers be implemented in this way...

The purpose of Power Electronics Handbook is to provide a
reference that is both concise and useful for engineering
students and practicing professionals. It is designed to cover
a wide range of topics that make up the field of power
electronics in a well-organized and highly informative
manner. The Handbook is a careful blend of both traditional
topics and new advancements. Special emphasis is placed on
practical applications, thus, this Handbook is not a theoretical
one, but an enlightening presentation of the usefulness of the
rapidly growing field of power electronics.

.The Electrical Engineering Handbook Series
This book can be used as a general handbook for applying electrical engineering to the oil, gas and
petrochemical industries. The contents have been developed from a series of lectures on electrical
power systems, given to oil company staff and university students, in various countries. The author
has condensed many years of his knowledge and practical experience into the book.
Although there is no “typical” electric power system, a diagram
including the several components that are usually to be found in the
makeup of such a system is shown in Figure 1-1; particular attention
should be paid to those elements which will make up the component
under discussion, the distribution system.
Within this book the fundamental concepts associated with the topic of power electronic control are covered alongside the latest equipment and devices, new application areas and associated computer-assisted methods.
*A practical guide to the control of reactive power systems
Harmonic distortion problems include equipment overheating, motor failures, capacitor failure and inaccurate power metering. The topic of power system harmonics was covered for the first time 20 years ago and the first edition has become a standard reference work in this area. Unprecedented developments in power electronic devices and their integration at all levels in the power system require a new look at the causes and effects of these problems, and the state of hardware and software available for harmonic assessment.
The generation, delivery, and utilization of electric power and energy remain among the most challenging
and exciting fields of electrical engineering. The astounding technological developments of our age are
highly dependent upon a safe, reliable, and economic supply of electric power. The objective of The
Electric Power Engineering Handbook is to provide a contemporary overview of this far-reaching field as
well as a useful guide and educational resource for its study.
