Kenneth Eloghene Okedu was a Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Research Fellow in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2013 at Cambridge, Boston, USA. He obtained his Ph.D. from the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Kitami Institute of Technology, Hokkaido, Japan in 2012. He received his B.Sc. and M. Eng. degrees in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Port Harcourt, Nigeria in 2003 and 2007, respectively, where he was retained as a Faculty member from 2005 until the present day. He was also a visiting Faculty member to The Petroleum Institute, (ADNOAC), Abu Dhabi. He was also a visiting Faculty member to the Caledonian College of Engineering, Muscat, Oman (a university college with Glasgow Caledonian University, UK). He is presently a visiting Professor to the National University of Science and Technology (NUST), Muscat, Oman in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. His research interests include power system stability, renewable energy systems, stabilization of wind farms using doubly fed induction generator variable speed wind turbine, augmentation and integration of renewable energy into power systems, grid frequency dynamics, wind energy penetration, FACTS devices and power electronics, renewable energy storage, hydrogen and fuel cells.

Latest work with IntechOpen by Kenneth Eloghene Okedu

This book is intended for academics and engineers working in universities, research institutes, and industry sectors wishing to acquire new information and enhance their knowledge of the current trends in wind turbine technology. Readers will gain new ideas and special experience with in-depth information about modeling, stability control, assessment, reliability, and future prospects of wind turbines. This book contains a number of problems and solutions that can be integrated into larger research findings and projects. The book enhances studies concerning the state of the art of wind turbines, modeling and intelligent control of wind turbines, power quality of wind turbines, robust controllers for wind turbines in cold weather, etc. The book also looks at recent developments in wind turbine supporting structures, noise reduction estimation methods, reliability and prospects of wind turbines, etc. As I enjoyed preparing this book, I am sure that it will be valuable for a large sector of readers.
