Discusses the application of mathematical and engineering tools for modeling, simulation and control oriented for energy systems, power electronics and renewable energy This book builds on the background knowledge of electrical circuits, control of dc/dc converters and inverters, energy conversion and power electronics. The book shows readers how to apply computational methods for multi-domain simulation of energy systems and power electronics engineering problems. Each chapter has a brief introduction on the theoretical background, a description of the problems to be solved, and objectives to be achieved. Block diagrams, electrical circuits, mathematical analysis or computer code are covered. Each chapter concludes with discussions on what should be learned, suggestions for further studies and even some experimental work. Discusses the mathematical formulation of system equations for energy systems and power electronics aiming state-space and circuit oriented simulations Studies the interactions between MATLAB® and Simulink® models and functions with real-world implementation using microprocessors and microcontrollers Presents numerical integration techniques, transfer-function modeling, harmonic analysis and power quality performance assessment Examines existing software such as, MATLAB®/Simulink®, Power Systems Toolbox and PSIM to simulate power electronic circuits including the use of renewable energy sources such as wind and solar sources The simulation files are available for readers who register with the Google Group: email@example.com. After your registration you will receive information in how to access the simulation files, the Google Group can also be used to communicate with other registered readers of this book. M. Godoy Simões is the director of the Center for Advanced Control of Energy and Power Systems (ACEPS) at Colorado School of Mines. He was an US Fulbright Fellow for Aalborg University, Institute of Energy Technology (Denmark). He is IEEE Fellow, with the citation: “for applications of artificial intelligence in control of power electronics systems.” Dr. Simões is a pioneer to apply neural networks and fuzzy logic in power electronics, motor drives and renewable energy systems. He is co-author of the book Integration of Alternative Sources of Energy (Wiley 2006), now in the second edition. Felix A.
