Large Scale Grid Integration of Renewable Energy Sources — Recommend this title to your library

The limited supply of fossil fuels, increasing demand for energy, and concern about the human environmental impact cannot ensure sustainability under the circumstances of existing fossil fuelled power plants. Today, wind technology is seen as the most prospective solution of alternative and sustainable sources of energy. However, its large-scale integration requires fundamental changes in the planning and operation of power systems as well as the management and attitudes towards different market and power system participants. Only synergy between consumers, producers and system operators will overcome the challenges faced with large-scale wind integration.
