About this book

Introduction

Power Electronics in Smart Electrical Energy Networks introduces a new viewpoint on power electronics, re-thinking the basic philosophy governing electricity distribution systems. The proposed concept fully exploits the potential advantages of renewable energy sources and distributed generation (DG), which should not only be connected but also fully integrated into the distribution system in order to increase the efficiency, flexibility, safety, reliability and quality of the electricity and the networks. The transformation of current electricity grids into smart (resilient and interactive) networks necessitates the development, propagation and demonstration of key enabling cost-competitive technologies (e.g., innovative interconnection solutions and storage technologies for renewable energy sources, etc.).

A must-read for professionals in power engineering and utility industries, researchers and postgraduates working in the field of distributed electrical power systems, Power Electronics in Smart Electrical Energy Networks presents the features, solutions and applications of the power electronics arrangements useful for future smart electrical energy networks.
