    The development of renewable sources for electrical energy has become a mainstream focus in the field of electrical engineering. This book can be used by both engineers and researchers working to develop new electrical systems and investigate existing ones. Additionally, it can serve as a guide for undergraduate and graduate students during their study of electrical fields. The electrical devices that are used in renewable sources have complicated inner structures, and methods of computer simulation make the development of these systems easier and faster. Simulink, and its toolbox SimPowerSystems, is the most popular means for simulation of electrical systems. The topic of wind-generator (WG) systems simulation merits detailed consideration; therefore, this text covers an in-depth exploration of the simulation of WG systems, systems with batteries, photovoltaic systems, fuel elements, microturbines, and hydroelectric systems.

    SimPowerSystems Models. Models of the Elements and Devices. Simulation of Power Electronics Devices. Electrical Generators. Renewable Electrical Sources Simulation. Wind-Generator (WG) System Simulation.


    Viktor M. Perelmuter received a diploma of the electrical engineer with honors from the National Technical University "Kharkov Polytechnic Institute" in 1958. Dr. Perelmuter earned a degree of Candidate of the technical sciences (PhD) from Electromechanical Institute Moscow/SU, 1967, a diploma of Senior scientific worker (confirmation of the Supreme Promoting Committee by USSR Council of Ministers), 1981, and a degree of Doctor of technical sciences from the Electrical Power Institute Moscow/SU, 1991.

    From 1958 to 2000, he worked in the Research Electrotechnical Institute, Kharkov/Ukraine in the thyristor drive department, during which time he also served as Department Chief (1988-2000). He repeatedly took part in putting power electric drives into operation at metallurgical plants. This work was commended with a number of the honorary diplomas. Between the years 1993-2000, he was a director of the joint venture: "Elpriv", Kharkov. During 1965-1998, he was Supervisor of the graduation works at the Technical University, Kharkov. Dr. Perelmuter was a Chairman of the State Examination Committee in the Ukrainian Correspondence Polytechnical Institute from 1975-1985. Simultaneously with his ongoing engineering activity, he led the scientific work in the fields of the electrical drives, power electronics, and control systems.

    He is the author or co-author of 10 books, approximately 75 articles, and holds 19 patents in SU and Ukraine. Since 2001, Dr. Perelmuter has worked as a Scientific Advisor in the National Technical University "Kharkov Polytechnic Institute" and in Ltd "Jugelectroproject", Kharkov. He is also an IEEE Life Member.
