About the book
The worldwide demand to realize reliable electric power with high energy efficiency drives the necessity and development of hybrid power systems (HPS). Typically, HPS is a type of integrated system in which two or more power systems are integrated via intrinsic or extrinsic modes to gain the merits of all the systems.
This book primarily focuses on the burgeoning aspects of HPS in academic research and industrial sectors as well as their issues and challenges. This book typically covers the fundamental working principle and current trends in different types of HPS such as photovoltaic-, hydropower, thermoelectric, fuel cell (DMFC, and SOFC), nanogenerators, batteries, and supercapacitor technologies. Additionally, it also covers the area of techno-economic assessment of HPS and the attempts to decrease fuel consumption, reduce electricity cost, and low carbon emission levels.
The overall purpose of this book is to provide an ideal resource for students, research scholars and scientists, working in the field of energy conversion- and storage technologies and HPS.
