Book Description

Hybrid energy systems integrate multiple sources of power generation, storage, and transport mechanisms and can facilitate increased usage of cleaner, renewable, and more efficient energy sources. Hybrid Power: Generation, Storage, and Grids discusses hybrid energy systems from fundamentals through applications and discusses generation, storage, and grids.

 

  • Highlights fundamentals and applications of hybrid energy storage
  • Discusses use in hybrid and electric vehicles and home energy needs
  • Discusses issues related to hybrid renewable energy systems connected to the utility grid
  • Describes the usefulness of hybrid microgrids and various forms of off-grid energy such as mini-grids, nanogrids, and stand-alone systems
  • Covers the use of hybrid renewable energy systems for rural electrification around the world
  • Discusses various forms and applications of hybrid energy systems, hybrid energy storage, hybrid microgrids, and hybrid off-grid energy systems
  • Details simulation and optimization of hybrid renewable energy systems

 

This book is aimed at advanced students and researchers in academia, government, and industry, seeking a comprehensive overview of the basics, technologies, and applications of hybrid energy systems.
