Part of the book series: Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering (LNEE, volume 1039)

About this book

This book provides a brief insight of various challenges and its mitigation techniques in microgrid due to power quality (PQ) issues. The central concept of this book revolves around the PQ issues in microgrid. The main objective of this book is to make aware of the power and control engineers with different innovative techniques to mitigate the challenges due to PQ issues in microgrid. The topics covered in this book are PQ disturbances in microgrid and different recent and innovative schemes to mitigate them. The book emphasizes technical issues, theoretical background, and practical applications that drive postgraduates, researchers, and practicing engineers with right advanced skills, vision, and knowledge in finding microgrid power quality issues, various technical challenges and providing mitigation techniques for the future sustainable microgrids.
