by Thomas Ackermann (Editor)

Editorial Reviews

“I enjoy reading first-rate expository writing, I expect to have the book on a
nearby shelf, within reach…”. (Modern Power Systems, May 2005)

Product Description
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
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.
