    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; wind power; hydro power; transmission bottlenecks; stochastic optimization; Electric power engineering; Elkraftteknik;

    Abstract : During the last two decades, the increase in electricity demand and environmental concern resulted in fast growth of power production from renewable sources. Wind power is one of the most efficient alternatives. READ MORE

  3. 3. Wind Power and Natural Disasters

    Author : Jon Olauson; Mikael Bergkvist; Stefan Ivanell; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Wind power; Natural disasters; Hybrid energy system; Meteorological model; Statistical model; Variability; Wind power integration;

    Abstract : Wind power can be related to natural disasters in several ways. This licentiate thesis gives some background and introduces four papers devoted to two aspects of this relation. The first section looks into how small-scale wind energy converters (WECs) could be used to generate power after a natural disaster. READ MORE

  4. 4. High Efficiency Inductive Power Transfer Systems for Vehicle Charging

    Author : Daniel Pehrman; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : power flow control; high efficiency; dual-active bridge; bi-directional; electric vehicles; high power; inductive power transfer; electromagnetic fields; three-phase;

    Abstract : Awareness of climate change due to greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution has led to a transition from internal combustion engine vehicles to electric vehicles. Wireless charging by inductive power transfer is a promising solution for charging electric vehicles. READ MORE
