energy modeling Books

  • World Energy Resources

    This book provides a comprehensive discussion and analysis of global energy resources, international energy markets, international energy forecasts for the first quarter of the 21st century, conventional and alternative energy technologies and pertinent historical developments of world energy. It is organized into four parts with 27 chapters that ...

  • Agent-Based Models of Energy Investment Decisions

    As societies face the challenge of securing an efficient and environmentally sound energy supply, researchers have strived to determine the future development of energy consumption, infrastructure and technology endowment.This book proposes a new agent-based approach to studying the development of urban energy systems. Decisions of private and ...

  • Solar Energy Fundamentals and Modeling Techniques

    Solar irradiation is the fundamental initiator of the different renewable energy alternatives, including wind, wave, hydrogen and biomass energy sources. Solar Energy Fundamentals and Modelling Techniques presents the methods of quantitative determination of solar irradiation incident amount on a surface on the Earth. The book collects together ...

  • Transforming the Market : Energy Efficiency in Buildings

    New modeling by the WBCSD shows how energy use in buildings can be cut by 60 percent by 2050 - essential to meeting global climate change targets - but this will require immediate action to transform the building sector. This is the central message of the report from the WBCSD's four-year, $15 million Energy Efficiency in Buildings (EEB) research ...

  • Energy Policies in the European Union - Germany´s Ecological Tax Reform

    Global warming is a serious threat to the stability of world climate and to economic prosperity in some regions. The book offers a theoretical analysis which focuses on double dividend issues. Moreover, the ecological tax reform in Germany and the options of modern energy policy are described and evaluated. The volume presents innovative model ...

  • Prediction of Solar Radiation in Areas with a Specific Microclimate

    One of the main objectives of the European Community Programme on Solar Energy is to provide solar energy practitioners -- architects and engineers who design and implement both active and passive solar energy systems, including biomass and daylighting systems -- with well documented meteorological and climatological data so that they can ...

  • Wind Turbine Control Systems

    Modern wind turbines generally operate at variable speed in order to maximise the conversion efficiency below rated power and to reduce loading on the drive-train. In addition, pitch control of the blades is usually employed to limit the energy captured during operation above rated wind speed. The higher complexity of variable-speed variable-pitch ...

  • Automated Diagnostics and Analytics for Buildings

    With the widespread availability of high-speed, high capacity microprocessors and microcomputers with high-speed communication ability, and sophisticated energy analytics software, the technology to support deployment of automated diagnostics is now available, and the opportunity to apply automated fault detection and diagnostics to every system ...
