Over several decades, models, techniques and application tools were developed that recognised the central nature of generation, and there are many excellent texts that relate to and describe the assessment of such systems. However, some very specific features of distributed generation, namely that large numbers of relatively small generators are distributed around the system, often connected into relatively weak distribution networks mean that existing techniques and practices have had to be reviewed and updated to take these features into account. The questions raised by large numbers of distributed generators and their control within a de-regulated commercial environment (Virtual Power Plants), Active Network Management and Microgrids are also addressed. This book is the outcome of the authors' experience teaching courses on Distributed Generation to undergraduate and MSc students in the UK, USA and Sri Lanka. Many Universities are now offering courses on Renewable Energy and how sustainable, low-carbon generation can be integrated effectively into the distribution system. The book has four tutorial chapters (with examples and questions) to provide fundamental material for those without a strong electrical engineering background. Non-specialists may then benefit from the main body of the text once they have studied the tutorial material.Reseña del editor:
Throughout the world there is concern over the impact of energy use on the environment (particularly CO2 emissions) and also over the security of fossil fuel supplies. Consequently, governments and energy planners are actively encouraging alternative and cleaner forms of energy production such as renewables (e.g. wind, solar, biomass) and combined heat and power (CHP). The economics and locations of sustainable energy sources have meant that many of these new generators are connected into distribution networks. It is recognized that the information flow and control of distribution networks is inadequate for these future low-carbon electricity supply systems. The future distribution network will change its operation from passive to active, and the distributed generators will be controlled to support the operation of the power system. In many countries this transformation of electricity supply is managed through energy markets and privately owned, regulated transmission and distribution systems. This book discusses the connection of generation to distribution networks and then moves on to consider how sustainable generation can be fully integrated into the operation of the power system. Both technical and economic aspects are addressed. It is written for later-year undergraduate and postgraduate students studying courses on energy. The book has four tutorial chapters (with examples and questions) to provide fundamental material for those without a strong electrical engineering background.
