The seek for clear, renewable energy sources has yielded monumental growth and new developments in these technologies in just a few short years, driving down costs and inspiring utilities in many nations, both developed and growing, to add and broaden wind and solar energy capacity.
Wind and Solar Power Systems: Design, Analysis, and Operation 2nd Edition by Mukund R. Patel provides essentially the most complete and modern treatment of renewable energy by providing up to date and expanded coverage of this rising field. The book begins with individual sections dedicated to wind power and solar photovoltaic technologies, their engineering fundamentals, conversion characteristics, operational considerations to maximize output, and emerging trends.
The discussion of wind energy includes the idea of induction machine efficiency and operation as well as generator speed management, while the solar PV part includes array design, environmental variables, and sun-monitoring methods. This book consists of two chapters devoted to new and specialised technologies. The third part explores massive-scale energy storage applied sciences, total electrical system performance, and whole plant economic system while the final part explores ancillary energy techniques derived from the sun.
Focusing on the entire system reasonably than on a single part, this text gives essentially the most comprehensive reference to all features of recent renewable energy systems. All through the text, it is abundantly clear the author is a knowledgeable engineer with considerable experience within the various sciences and applied sciences that present the foundations of wind and photovoltaic power generation.
It is also apparent that author is an experienced instructor, as a result of the shows is technically accurate, nicely organized, effectively paced, and appropriately focused for the mid- to upper-level undergraduate scholar with reasonable technical exposure and interest.
