From the Publisher"I highly recommend the essential and very in depth book Power Conversion and Control of Wind Energy Systems by Bin Wu, Ph.D., Yongqiang Lang, Ph.D., Navid Zargari, Ph.D., and Samir Kouro, Ph.D., to any academics, practicing engineers, consultants, electrical and energy industry executives, government policy makers, and graduate and senior undergraduate students seeking a complete and comprehensive reference textbook that covers all aspects of wind power conversion and control of wind energy conversion systems (WECS). This is a landmark book that is a must for anyone serious about the subject, and about the principles that underpin wind energy systems." (Blog Business World, 1 March 2012)
"Considering that the wind energy is now highly competitive and is being emphasized all over the world, this book is extremely important and very timely. It is expected to be of wide demand in the world. The book is of unique quality, and no such book currently exists in the market. The primary emphasis of the book is power conversion and control of wind energy conversion systems. It gives comprehensive and in-depth analysis on wind generators, power converters and control systems of various types of wind generation systems. There are adequate explanatory materials on different types of wind turbines, and basics of wind energy systems. The book is very well-organized with physical explanations, mathematical analysis, computer simulation, experimental results, and worked-out examples. There are a large number of worked-out problems at the end of the book which are extremely important. It is a unique book with optimal balance of theory and practical discussion. It is a complete book for designers of wind generation systems and can serve as textbook for undergraduate/graduate courses in universities.
