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.

About the editor

Karthikeyan Krishnamoorthy

Jeju National University

Dr. Karthikeyan Krishnamoorthy is currently a contract professor in the Department of Mechatronics Engineering, Jeju National University, South Korea. He has more than eight years of teaching and research experience in the synthesis and characterization of 2D nanomaterials. Dr. Karthikeyan Krishnamoorthy received his Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Jeju National University, Republic of Korea. He received Master of Technology in Nanoscience and Technology (from Mepco Schlenk Engineering College, Anna University, India) and Master of Science in Physics (Thanthai Hans Roever College, Bharathidasan University, India). His research works are focused on Raman spectroscopic analysis of low-dimensional materials, the development of next-generation energy harvesting and storage devices using two-dimensional nanostructures beyond graphene, and advanced EES systems or Electric Vehicles (EVs). With a Hirsch index of 41, Dr. Karthikeyan’s great research achievements have resulted in six patent applications and more than 100 research articles in international journals. To his credit, he was recognized as one of Stanford’s top scientists (2%) in the world across all scientific (nano) disciplines in 2019.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

M.Sc. Iva Ribic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
