This book introduces power electronic technology for the control and modelling of fixed- and variable-speed wind turbines, induction and synchronous generators. The authors supply a steady-state, transient and dynamic stability analysis of mixed power systems, including power system stabilisers for DFIG-based and FSIG-based wind farms. The book includes a coherent discussion on the influence of structural dynamics on wind turbine modelling, control and operation in detail. The control philosophies and schemes that enable the reliable and cost-effective operation of these generation systems are examined, and wind farm integration is described.A unique feature of this book is a step-by-step…

Tom Magrini is an information technology professional with over 30 years experience in the field. Tom has used Macs since 1984 and still fondly remembers his first Apple Macintosh computer with its 8 MHz Motorola 68000 processor, 9-inch 512 x 342 pixel black-and-white screen, 128 kB of RAM, and built-in 400 kB 3� inch floppy drive. He also worked on NeXT computers and the NeXTStep operating system, the forerunner to Apple's OS X. Tom's hobby is (you guessed it) working on computers particularly his Early 2011 MacBook Pro.During the work week, Tom leads a team of IT professionals who maintain two data centers and the network, telephony, platform, security, and client computing…
