In traditional power system dynamics and control books, the focus is on synchronous generators. Within current industry, where renewable energy, power electronics converters, and microgrids arise, the related system-level dynamics and control need coverage. Wind energy system dynamics and microgrid system control are covered. The text also offers insight to using programming examples, state-of-the-art control design tools, and advanced control concepts to explain traditional power system dynamics and control. The reader will gain knowledge of dynamics and control in both synchronous generator-based power system and power electronic converter enabled renewable energy systems, as well as microgrids.
"The material on renewable energy systems was particularly of interest and the text includes MATLAB code and numerous problems and examples. The text is aimed at students rather than engineers in industry, but it will be valuable to both. The text is nicely presented with a logical layout of the text and its presentation.
This is certainly a book that can be recommended for the bookshelves of engineers working on power systems, power electronics and renewable energies. The hard back is £92 but there is an e-book available at £64.40. It includes more than 200 pages of useful material."

"The author’s goal is to provide a bridge between traditional control and microgrid control. That goal is fully achieved. The reader learns by example problems and solutions with the provided MATLAB code. I wholeheartedly recommend Control and Dynamics in Power Systems and Microgrids as an extension to traditional text presentations of power system analysis. I applaud the author’s presentation of problems and solutions with MATLAB code as a thorough learning tool."
