Integrating Wind Energy to Weak Power Grids using High Voltage Direct Current Technology Book Review:

This book is the first of its kind to provide a comprehensive framework for connecting wind farms to weak power grids using High Voltage DC technology. Most onshore wind energy potential is located in areas that are hardly inhabited and the majority of wind energy that is being harnessed by European countries is currently offshore, both sourced from locations that lack the presence of a strong power grid. This book focuses on the many challenges the wind farm industry faces integrating both onshore and offshore wind to ‘weak’ grids using HVDC technology. Through case studies and illustrative examples the author presents a framework for theoretical and mathematical analysis of HVDC technology, its application and successful integration of onshore and offshore wind farms. Presents a unified approach for integrating onshore and offshore wind energy to existing AC systems through MTDC grids; Includes an extensive treatment of onshore wind farms connected to LCC HVDC systems; Provides a comprehensive analysis of offshore wind farms connected to VSC HVDC systems.

Integration of High Voltage AC DC Grids into Modern Power Systems Book Review:

Electric power transmission relies on AC and DC grids. The extensive integration of conventional and nonconventional energy sources and power converters into power grids has resulted in a demand for high voltage (HV), extra-high voltage (EHV), and ultra-high voltage (UHV) AC/DC transmission grids in modern power systems. To ensure the security, adequacy, and reliable operation of power systems, the practical aspects of interconnecting HV, EHV, and UHV AC/DC grids into the electric power systems, along with their economic and environmental impacts, should be considered. The stability analysis for the planning and operation of HV, EHV, and UHV AC/DC grids in power systems is regarded as another key issue in modern power systems. Moreover, interactions between power converters and other power electronics devices (e.g., FACTS devices) installed on the network are other aspects of power systems that must be addressed. This Special Issue aims to investigate the integration of HV, EHV, and UHV AC/DC grids into modern power systems by analyzing their control, operation, protection, dynamics, planning, reliability, and security, along with considering power quality improvement, market operations, power conversion, cybersecurity, supervisory and monitoring, diagnostics, and prognostics systems.

A uk based Modular DC DC Converter for Medium voltage Direct current MVDC Grid Applications Book Review:

"A reliable modular DC-DC converter that is well-suited to the MVDC grid applications is presented in this dissertation. This converter benefits from zero current turn-off and soft turn-on switching. Each power module is designed and controlled such that it employs two small film capacitors for transferring the power from the input to the output. This feature eliminates the need for electrolytic capacitors that have high failure rates. Furthermore, each power module is configured as an isolated converter, using an integrated high frequency transformer. Each power module in the proposed modular converter sees only one semiconductor on the conduction path to transfer energy from the input to the link capacitors or from the link capacitors to the output, which results in relatively low conduction losses. Another advantage of the proposed converter is the possibility of having bidirectional flow of power. The zero current turn-off feature in the proposed converter allows using any type of active switches, even Silicon Controlled Rectifiers (SCRs), which are naturally commuted switches. SCRs have numerous advantages over the other power switches, including higher voltage ratings and current ratings, lower power losses, lower cost, and higher reliability, which are all of particular importance in the MVDC grid application. The main limitation of SCRs is that they have natural commutation and cannot be turned off with gate signals. The approach employed in this dissertation enables the use of SCRs in the proposed modular DC-DC converters. The input and output terminals of the power modules can be connected in series or in parallel to form modular converters that facilitate sharing voltage or current in high power applications. In this dissertation, an input-parallel output-series (IPOS) modular configuration is considered to increase the voltage blocking capability at the output and handle high currents at the input of the converter. The dissertation studies the principles of the operation of this converter and presents its design procedure. Also, a modified topology for reducing the number of inputs switches is proposed. Multi-port configurations that allow having several independent input sources in this modular DC-DC converter are presented in this dissertation. In addition, a brief comparison between the proposed topology and a dual active bridge (DAB)-based modular converter, which is the most common DC-DC converter topology used in MVDC grid, is carried out. In addition, the performance of the proposed modular converter is evaluated through simulations and experiments"--Author's abstract.

Renewable Energy Book Review:

The utilisation of renewable energies is not at all new; in the history of mankind renewable energies have for a long time been the primary possibility of generating energy. This only changed with industrial revolution when lignite and hard coal became increasingly more important. Later on, also crude oil gained importance. Offering the advantages of easy transportation and processing also as a raw material, crude oil has become one of the prime energy carriers applied today. Moreover, natural gas used for space heating and power provision as well as a transportation fuel has become increasingly important, as it is abundantly available and only requires low investments in terms of energy conversion facilities. As fossil energy carriers were increasingly used for energy generation, at least by the industrialised countries, the application of renewable energies decreased in absolute and relative terms; besides a few exceptions, renewable energies are of secondary importance with regard to overall energy generation.

America s Energy Future Book Review:

For multi-user PDF licensing, please contact customer service. Energy touches our lives in countless ways and its costs are felt when we fill up at the gas pump, pay our home heating bills, and keep businesses both large and small running. There are long-term costs as well: to the environment, as natural resources are depleted and pollution contributes to global climate change, and to national security and independence, as many of the world's current energy sources are increasingly concentrated in geopolitically unstable regions. The country's challenge is to develop an energy portfolio that addresses these concerns while still providing sufficient, affordable energy reserves for the nation. The United States has enormous resources to put behind solutions to this energy challenge; the dilemma is to identify which solutions are the right ones. Before deciding which energy technologies to develop, and on what timeline, we need to understand them better. America's Energy Future analyzes the potential of a wide range of technologies for generation, distribution, and conservation of energy. This book considers technologies to increase energy efficiency, coal-fired power generation, nuclear power, renewable energy, oil and natural gas, and alternative transportation fuels. It offers a detailed assessment of the associated impacts and projected costs of implementing each technology and categorizes them into three time frames for implementation.
