  • Size optimisation of hybrid wind-PV power generation systems for remote rural areas

    Electrical power generation with renewable energies, such as wind and solar, plays an important role in the electrification of remote rural areas. Since there are always seasonal and synoptic variations in wind and solar resources, a hybrid system, consisting of both wind and solar energy, may be more reliable and economical than a single energy system: this is because either energy can ...

  • Maximum power point tracking for wind energy conversion systems based on fuzzy modelling and control

    Wind energy conversion systems (WECS) have merits as environmentally friendly and renewable sources of energy. Because of its stochastic variations, power management concepts are essential to extract as much power as possible from the wind when it becomes available. The purpose of this paper is to present a TSK fuzzy model, which represents the turbine characteristic for maximum power point ...

  • Using electricity to save the planet

    When it comes to energy efficiency, it used to be the big guys that mattered. Policymakers and market leaders focused on manufacturers, refiners and others that gobbled up lots of kilowatt hours.It’s not surprising. Manufacturers create bang for the buck. Better motors, refrigeration or combined heat and power can lead to six-digit dollar savings — far more impressive than the $10 per month an ...
