This textbook is the first of its kind to comprehensively describe the energy Internet, a vast network that efficiently supplies
electricity to anyone anywhere and is an internet based wide area network for information and energy fusion. The chapters
are organized into five parts: Architecture and Design, Energy Switching and Routing, Information and Communication, Energy
Management Systems and Energy Market and Trading, and capture the spectrum of this exponential transformation, while also
presenting the plethora of open problems that this transformation poses for researchers from mixed academic backgrounds. The
scope includes key technologies on distributed energy sources, microgrids, energy storage, solar and wind energy, power grid,
smart grid, power quality, power electronics, data centers, distributed computing and networking, cloud computing and big
data, and software-defined networking. The book presents the basic principles of energy internet and emphasizes the current
research trends in the field of energy Internet at an advanced level. It includes instructor materials, case-studies, and
worked examples throughout.
This is an ideal resource for students in advanced graduate-level courses and special topics
in energy, information and control systems, and is a useful tool for utility engineers who seek an intuitive understanding
of the emerging applications of energy Internet.
