WIND ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS
OUP India, Nov 17, 2005 - Technology & Engineering - 317 pages
Wind Electrical Systems is the first Indian textbook specifically covering issues concerning wind energy conversion. With its comprehensive treatment of topics, this book will benefit students as well as practising engineers working on wind energy. The book introduces the basics of wind energy and then discusses the conversion of wind energy into electrical energy, wind energy integration with the local grid, stand-alone generation and consumption, variable-speed wind generators and hybrid power systems. The book assumes no prior knowledge in the field and therefore would also be suitable for readers with a non-electrical-engineering background.
