Green Energy Systems: Design, Modelling, Synthesis and Applications provides a comprehensive introduction to the design, modeling, optimization and application of predictable and alternative energy systems. With a strong focus on the fundamentals, the book provides an overview of the energy potential and conversion topology of green energy sources, the design and analysis of off grid solar and wind energy sources, and their application in effective energy management in rural communities. Sections address energy systems from solar, wind, biomass, and hybrid energy sources, and include discussions of power electronic circuit topologies for energy conversion in both off and on grid systems.
The second part of the book addresses energy harvesting at different scales, with a particular emphasis on micro energy harvesting for low power electronics like wearable devices. A wide range of applications are also discussed, alongside their challenges and solutions. Finally, case studies are presented on select topics to give readers deeper insights into the real-world applications discussed.
