This book provides technological and socio-economic coverage of renewable energy. It discusses wind power technologies, solar photovoltaic technologies, large-scale energy storage technologies, and ancillary power systems. In this new edition, the book addresses advancements that have been made in renewable energy: grid-connected power plants, power electronics converters, and multi-phase conversion systems.

The text has been revised to include up-to-date material, statistics, and current technology trends. Three new chapters have been added to cover turbine generators, AC and DC wind systems, and recent advances solar power conversion.

  • Discusses additional renewable energy sources, such as ocean, special turbines, etc.
  • Covers system integration for solar and wind energy
  • Presents emerging DC wind systems
  • Includes coverage on turbine generators
  • Updated sections on solar power conversion

It offers students, practicing engineers, and researchers a comprehensive look at wind and solar power technologies. It is designed as a reference and can serve as a textbook for senior undergraduates in a one-semester course on renewable power or energy systems.


Mukund R. Patel, PhD, PE, is an Electrical Power engineer and educator with over 50 years of widely recognized expertise in the research, development, and design of advance high-power, high-voltage equipment and systems for land, ships, and space. He has authored over 50 research papers and 5 books, and he has co-authored two international handbooks. Omid Beik, Ph.D., MIEEE, received the B.Sc. degree (Hons.) with highest distinction in electrical engineering from Yazd University, Yazd, Iran, in 2007, the M.Sc. degree with highest distinction in electrical engineering from Shahid Beheshti University, Abbaspour School of Engineering, Tehran, Iran, in 2009, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from McMaster University, Hamilton, ON, Canada, in 2016. He was a Postgraduate Researcher with the Power Conversion Group, University of Manchester, U.K. (2011-2012) and a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at McMaster Automotive Resource Center (MARC), Hamilton, ON, Canada (2016-2017). His main research is focused on electric machines, drives and power electronics for applications in renewable energy systems and electrified powertrains.
