Integration of Alternative Sources of Energy describes the principles and applications of the main alternative sources and storage of energy. The sources of energy discussed are hydropower, wind power, photovoltaic power, solar heat, fuel cells, biomass, microturbines, and diesel. Energy storage includes batteries, flywheels, supercapacitors, superconductor coils, compressed air, hydrogen generation, heat, and water dams. The book discusses the methods of integrating sources and storage efficiently and suggests non-conventional techniques of control.
