  • Fossil Fuels: Heat, Light, and Prime Movers

    This chapter contains sections titled: Coals: The Earliest Modern Fuels, Hydrocarbons: Crude Oils and Natural Gases, From Extraction to Combustion: Modern Fossil Fuel Industries, Mechanical Prime Movers: Engines and Turbines, Fossil-Fueled Electricity: Generation and Transmission

  • Fossil Fuels and The Basic Combustion Process

    The process of combustion requires three items: a combustible fuel containing a certain amount of available energy that can be released during the combustion process, oxygen in sufficient quantity to ensure complete combustion and a heat source. This chapter discusses the combustible fuel and the oxidizing agent (air) as they pertain to the typical fossil fuel steam generator. The two most common types of fossil fuels utilized for electricity generation are natural gas and coal. The chapter shows the combustion equations for various types of elements contained in fossil fuels. It also shows the theoretical maximum amount of energy released for one pound mass of element combusted. Fossil fuels are formed by the decomposition of organics over millions of years. The main combustible material in fossil fuel that is used to obtain chemical energy is carbon, although other molecules such as hydrogen and sulfur may provide some amount of energy during the combustion process.

  • Global Warming and the Future of the Earth

    The globally averaged surface temperature of the Earth has increased during the past century by about 0.7°C. Most of the increase can be attributed to the greenhouse effect, the increase in the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide that is emitted when fossil fuels are burned to produce energy.The book begins with the important distinction between weather and climate, followed by data showing how carbon dioxide has increased and the incontrovertible evidence that it is caused by burning fossil fuels (i.e., coal, oil, and natural gas). I also address the inevitable skepticism that global warming arouses and offer a number of responses to the global warming skeptics. After dealing with the skeptics, I analyze both the current and future effects of global warming. These future effects are based on scenarios or “storylines” put forth by the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis. In closing, I address the controversial (and grim) suggestion that we have already passed the “tipping point,” which is the time after which, regardless of our future actions, global warming will cause considerable hardship on human society. I intend this book to be approachable for all concerned citizens, but especially students of the sciences and engineering who will soon be in a position to make a difference in the areas of energy and the environment. I have tried to frame the debate in terms of what the engineering community must do to help combat global warming. We have no choice but to think in terms of global environmental constraints as we design new power plants, factories, automobiles, buildings, and homes. The best thing for scientists to do is to present what we know, clearly separating what is known from what is suspected, in a non-apocalyptic manner. If matters are clearly and passionately presented to the public, we must be prepared to accept the will of the people. This presents the scientific community with an enormous responsibility, perhaps unlike any we have had in the past.

  • Fossil Fuels, Primary Electricity, and Renewables

    Fundamentally, no terrestrial civilization can be anything else but a solar society dependent on the Sun's radiation, which energizes a habitable biosphere and produces all of our food, animal feed and wood. Preindustrial societies used this solar energy flux both directly, as incoming radiation (insolation)—every house has always been a solar house, passively heated—and indirectly.

  • Introduction

    This chapter provides an overview of wind power generation and the evolution of wind power systems and discusses the challenges and trends in wind power generation. With the increasing penetration of wind power into the grid, the technology of the wind power generation has undergone a rapid development. Modern wind power systems are more efficient, more reliable and more intelligent than before. The chapter addresses several emerging technology challenges for the future wind turbine systems (WTSs). It focuses on technology issues of power electronic converters in the WTS with respect to cost, reliability, grid integration, new power electronics circuits, and so on. The chapter also presents some concepts discussed in this book. The book focuses on the advanced control of the doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) wind power system, which is realized by the power electronic converters and aims at better grid integration performance.

  • Nuclear Power Plants: General Information

    On the record of the past 50 years, nuclear power has an edge over other forms of providing energy both in terms of limiting day‐to‐day adverse health and environmental effects, including greenhouse gas emissions and in terms of the frequency and toll of major accidents. This chapter provides a brief review of nuclear power generation, which is necessary to study the electrical systems and their importance to safety. Burning of fossil fuel creates difficult environmental issues. Nuclear plant accidents are discussed with particular emphasis on the accident contribution from electrical and instrumentation safety systems operation. To construct or operate a nuclear power plant, an applicant must submit a safety analysis report. The chapter also discusses commercial nuclear plants, advanced reactors, and nuclear accidents, such as those at Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, and Fukushima.

  • 7 Conclusion

    Many consider energy poverty an administrative or technical problem, but this book has shown that success in improving energy access depends to a large extent on the government's political and economic incentives to act. While there is no denying that fundamentals such as energy resources, geography, and wealth are important covariates of energy poverty, an exclusive focus on them obscures as much as it illuminates. From Vietnam to Ghana and South Africa, a common thread runs through effective measures to combat energy poverty, and that thread is government interest. Where governments have strong political or economic reasons to combat energy poverty, there is an opportunity for effective policy. In turn, the extent of this success depends on the availability of institutional capacity in the energy sector and the presence of effective local accountability mechanisms.

  • Distributed Generation

    The arrangement of traditional power systems under generation, transmission and sub‐transmission and distribution indicates that the power flow is unidirectional from where the electricity is generated to the distribution substations and the consumers' premises where it is utilized. Small‐scale microturbines can be used for distributed generation, alone or in combined heat and power (CHP) systems. In traditional power systems, the electric power is generated using alternating current (AC) synchronous machines. When connecting asynchronous generators with a utility grid at speeds significantly below synchronous speed, they have a disadvantage of resulting in damaging inrush currents and associated torques. Synchronous generators must be equipped with more complex control than grid‐connected asynchronous generators to be synchronized with the utility grid, and the field excitation needs to be controlled. Modeling and simulation of synchronous generators is necessary for short‐circuit calculations and other studies such as load flow, stability and harmonics.

  • Introduction

    The global demand for clean energy and electricity is rising fast. Thermal power plants burning fossil fuels are still the main source of power generation worldwide. Modern civilization cannot rely solely on fossil‐fuel‐based power generation in the future, even though today it is the dominant technology for electric power generation. Transmission and distribution losses and the low energy efficiency of end‐user applications are other elements contributing to the reduced exploitation of generated electricity. Power electronics and new converter technologies may support some of the sustainability goals by enabling the cost‐efficient and reliable integration of renewable energy sources (RES) into the power system. The use of voltage‐source‐converter (VSC) technology makes it possible to maintain the voltage and power quality on the connecting ac networks. The integration of RES into the power system will strongly rely on the availability of transmission and distribution networks.
