Due to the increasing world population, energy consumption is steadily climbing, and there is a demand to provide solutions
for sustainable and renewable energy production, such as wind turbines and photovoltaics. Power electronics are being used
to interface renewable sources in order to maximize the energy yield, as well as smoothly integrate them within the grid.
In many cases, power electronics are able to ensure a large amount of energy saving in pumps, compressors, and ventilation
systems. This book explains the operations behind different renewable generation technologies in order to better prepare the
reader for practical applications. Multiple chapters are included on the state-of-the-art and possible technology developments
within the next 15 years. The book provides a comprehensive overview of the current renewable energy technology in terms of
system configuration, power circuit usage, and control. It contains two design examples for small wind turbine system and
PV power system, respectively, which are useful for real-life installation, as well as many computer simulation models.
