Optimization in Renewable Energy Systems : Recent Perspectives (Paperback) (Ozan Erdinc)
about this item
Optimization in Renewable Energy Systems covers all major areas where optimization techniques have been applied to reduce uncertainty or improve results in renewable energy systems (RES). Production of power with RES is highly variable and unpredictable, leading to the need for optimization-based planning and operation in order to maximize economy while sustaining performance. This self-contained book begins with an introduction to optimization, then covers a wide range of applications in both large and small scale operations, including optimum operation of electric power systems with large penetration of RES, power forecasting, transmission system planning, and DG sizing and siting for distribution and end-user premises.
Appropriate for energy engineers, researchers, system operators, system regulators, and graduate students.
- Each chapter written by an expert in the field
- Goes beyond forecasting to apply optimization techniques to a wide variety of renewable energy system issues, from large scale to relatively small scale systems
- Provides accompanying computer code for related chapters
