About the book

As the quest to proffer solutions to frequency dynamics and voltage stability in modern power grids is on the rise, energy storage devices are bound to play a key role. The need for power smoothing approaches, considering the penetration of intermittent renewable energy sources in standalone or existing grid connected systems, is imperative. This book would discuss some of the energy storage devices in Solar Photovoltaic (PV) systems, Wind farms, Smart Grids, Electric Vehicles, Hydrogen Vehicles and Bioengineering processes. These energy storage devices could serve as a short term or long term energy storage systems, for the enhanced performance of the systems they are employed.

Detailed performance analysis in dynamic and transient conditions will be carried out regarding the use of energy storage devices in power grids and smart networks, in order to judge the robustness of the controllers involved in the energy storage topology. For the bioengineering applications, various environment working conditions will be explored, to see the effects on energy storage devices. This book will hopefully be helpful to readers interested in the current state-of-the-art of the applications of energy storage devices.
