The creation of a deregulated internal European electricity market and EU commitments for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions (driven by the Kyoto Protocol) and for the use of renewable energy generation technologies have produced important new constraints and demands on the electric power systems of Europe. This in turn has driven increasing levels of research and development to address these new challenges, and to ensure the reliability of the power systems.
This book will provide advanced tools covering major aspects of the problems and their potential solutions for professionals in the fields where these issues are focused, including associated research and development. Split into two parts (the first covering the operation and control of electric power systems and the second covering the stability and resilience of electric power systems), this book gathers together contributions from numerous well-known specialists in academia and the electrical industry and therefore will be an invaluable reference for all those involved in this field.
