Description

Weather to Energy: A Complex Voyage synthesizes several vertically integrated disciplines, allowing new researchers to become involved in renewable energy studies. The book covers the basics needed to jump into the field, including sections on electrical load data and weather model data. The research on optimizing weather-driven renewable energies requires working knowledge of certain disciplines, such as economics, mathematics, atmospheric physics, statistics, fluid dynamics, power modeling and engineering. This book's aim is to inspire new research in renewable energy for interested scientists who may not have the required skills.
