  • Description
  • Contents

This textbook introduces the fundamentals of renewable electrical power systems examining their direct relationships with the environment. It covers conventional power systems and opportunities for increased efficiencies and friendlier environmental interactions. While presenting state-of-the-art technology, the author uses a practical interdisciplinary approach explaining electrical, thermodynamics, and environmental topics within every chapter. This approach allows students to feel comfortable moving across these disciplines. The added value are the examples of software programs using open source systems which serve as learning tools for the concepts and techniques described in the book.

  • Discusses the sources of energy and their impact on the environment through a interdisciplinary approach.
  • Covers topics with the right level of detail, providing enough depth while maintaining a broad perspective
  • Emphasizes renewable energy generation technologies, their thermodynamics and how the related electrical power works
  • Suitable for a large number of courses with home exercises for each chapter and software calculations scripts for self practise
  • Introduction to R with examples from an open source program for utility scale and small scale
