TY - CHAP A1 - Mervat Abd El Sattar Badr ED1 - Karam Y. Maalawi Y1 - 2020-03-25 PY - 2020 T1 - Hybrid Wind and Solar Systems Optimization N2 - The reduction of greenhouse gas emissions is a major governmental goal worldwide. The main target, hopefully by 2050, is to move away from fossil fuels in the electricity sector and then switch to clean power to fuel transportation, buildings and industry. This book discusses important issues in the expanding field of wind farm modeling and simulation as well as the optimization of hybrid and micro-grid systems. Section I deals with modeling and simulation of wind farms for efficient, reliable and cost-effective optimal solutions. Section II tackles the optimization of hybrid wind/PV and renewable energy-based smart micro-grid systems.
