  1. 1. Electric Power Generation and Storage Using a High Voltage Approach

    Author : Björn Bolund; Mats Leijon; Hans Bernhoff; Tore Undeland; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Engineering physics; Flywheel; Generation; Generator; High Voltage; Power flow; Poynting; Teknisk fysik;

    Abstract : Production and consumption of electricity have grown enormously during the last century. No mater what the primary source of energy is, almost all generation of electricity comes from conversion of a rotational movement in a generator. The aim of this thesis is to see how high voltage technology influence production and storage of electricity. READ MORE

  2. 2. Electrical Systems for Wave Energy Conversion

    Author : Cecilia Boström; Mats Leijon; Daniel Karlsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Wave power; direct driven linear generators; electrical systems; non-linear loads; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; Engineering Science with specialization in Science of Electricity; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot elektricitetslära;

    Abstract : Wave energy is a renewable energy source with a large potential to contribute to the world's electricity production. There exist several technologies on how to convert the energy in the ocean waves into electric energy. The wave energy converter (WEC) presented in this thesis is based on a linear synchronous generator. READ MORE

  3. 3. Marine Current Resource Assessment : Measurements and Characterization

    Author : Nicole Carpman; Karin Thomas; Mats Leijon; Sandra Eriksson; Mairead Atcheson; Uppsala universitet; []
