Advanced Nanomaterials and Their Applications in Renewable Energy
by Jingbo Louise Liu and Sajid Bashir
This book presents timely topics related to nanomaterials’ feasible synthesis and characterization, and their application in the energy fields. It also provides insights and scientific discoveries in toxicity study, with information that is easily understood by a wide audience. The book emphasizes the fundamental physics and chemistry underlying the techniques used to develop solar and fuel cells with high charge densities and energy conversion efficiencies. New analytical techniques (synchronous X-ray) which probe the interactions of particles and radiation with matter are also explored, making the book an invaluable reference for practitioners and those interested in the science. It offers a comprehensive review of solar energy, fuel cells, and gas storage from 2010 to the present.
Energy Storage for Sustainable Microgrid
by David Wenzhong Gao
This book offers a concise guide to the design and operation of sustainable microgrid applications with a focus on the critical issue of the interaction of storage and microgrid technology. It addresses the issues related to modelling, operation and control, steady-state and dynamic analysis of microgrids with ESS. This book also discusses major electricity storage technologies in depth along with their efficiency, lifetime cycles, environmental benefits and capacity, so readers can envisage which type of storage technology is best for a particular microgrid application. It offers solutions to numerous difficulties such as choosing the right ESS for the particular microgrid application, proper sizing of ESS for microgrid, as well as design of ESS control systems for proper interfacing with the microgrid.
