New perspectives on using induction generators in alternative energy technologies

Durable and cost-effective, induction power generators have undergone numerous improvements that make them an increasingly attractive option for renewable energy applications, particularly for wind and hydropower generation systems. From fundamental concepts to the latest technologies, Alternative Energy Systems: Design and Analysis with Induction Generators, Second Edition provides detailed and accurate coverage of all aspects related to the design, operation, and overall analysis of such systems.

Placing a greater emphasis on providing clear, precise, and succinct explanations, this second edition features new, revised, and updated content as well as figures, tables, equations, and examples. Each chapter introduces a multi-step, chapter-length problem relating the material to a real application. The solution appears at the end of the chapter, along with additional practice problemsand references.

New Material in This Edition:

  • Updated definitions for generated power and efficiency
  • Technological advances, such as new applications using doubly-fed induction generators
  • New methodologies, such as the magnetization curve representation for induction generators
  • Additional focus on renewable energy applications such as sea, wind, and hydropower systems
  • Totally re-written and updated chapter covering doubly-fed induction generators
  • Alternative Energy Systems provides the tools and expertise for advanced students and professionals in electrical, mechanical, civil, and environmental engineering involved in the development of power plants.
