  • Conclusion

    This book has examined in detail the selection process of biomass materials for the purpose of using them as a source of a fuel. This concluding chapter of the book provides an outline on the application of REA1 methodology, and the importance of biomass as a source of renewable energy. A number of businessmen, engineers, researchers, and technicians still believe that there is not enough support at the present time for co-firing methods and for the bio-fuels industries in general. The super fuel sample (SFS) fulfills certain factors such as price, quality, and availability, storage, which the majority of biofuels available on the market cannot provide. Depending on the type of technology used and the type of biomass materials, the cost of producing energy from biomass materials can vary.

  • Index

    Page numbers in italic and bold refer to figures and tables, respectively.

  • Introduction

    This introductory chapter provides an overview of the structure and contents of the book. It focuses on energy utilization and discusses the need for effective biomass utilization. The chapter also discusses why the need for a new energy system exists, and explains several barriers to the adoption of renewable energy technologies. The aim of the book is to apply a systematic approach to biomass materials for the purpose of finding the most economical and efficient type, capable of producing sufficient energy on a commercial scale. This should help in reducing harmful gasses and stabilize CO2 in the atmosphere. The book investigates various biomass samples for long-term commercial use. When environmental issues, long-term supply/availability, and economic reasons are taken into account, the design and implementation of a new biomass energy system can provide benefits in many ways.

  • 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.

  • Application of Renewable Energy

    This chapter focuses on the application of renewable energy in power systems. Most renewable energy comes either directly or indirectly from the sun. Most commonly used solar technologies for electricity is the solar photovoltaic (PV) cell. The PV array normally uses a maximum power point tracking (MPPT) technique to continuously deliver the highest power to the load when there are variations in irradiation and temperature. In the actual PV power system, the changes in solar irradiance intensity and temperature are not controllable. Energy from the wind has been harnessed for thousands of years, making wind power one of the oldest forms of renewable energy. Wind power generation can affect the large-disturbance voltage stability of power systems because a fault in the network results in a reduction in the supply voltage to a wind generator for a short period of time and subsequently to generator tripping due to minimum voltage protections.

  • Methodology: Part 1

    The process of selecting a workable commercial biomass fuel is nothing but gradual steps of testing and refining procedures; part of the procedure involved is the creation and implementation of a new methodology. The methodology's main focus is to find biomass materials with the highest output of energy that are readily available at a low cost, that is, the correct selection process is one of the main parts of the methodology. A renewable energy source project/business (biomass) is made up from three important parts that make up a pyramid: environmental issues and main sources of energy, scientific and technical issues, and business issues. The decision tree approach can shed light on areas of biomass energy prospects, which may be missed with other approaches. The chapter outlines the methodology terms and definitions for scientific and technical (S&T)/business factors (BF), the scoring system for REA1 methodology, and the survey method.

  • Results: Part 1

    Statistical data have been collected, which through analysis, have been processed into facts. These facts are the foundation for a?>knowledge?> base, which is the main objective for original research and applications in any statistical approach. For this reason, a process is needed to develop business (BF) and scientific and technical (S&T) factors through the application of a methodology. From the analysis provided in this chapter, it has been concluded that the S&T section of a methodology may contain the lowest percentage of errors. In contrast, the BF section is more complex when it comes to the exact percentage of error. The REA1 methodology error is relatively small and falls within an expected standard error in any scientific/methodological research or corrective procedure. The standard deviation (SD) figure of 5% (with a population SD of 3.5%) means that the relative error of the REA1 methodology is close to 16%.

  • 2 Understanding Energy Poverty in the World

    Energy poverty is a multidimensional problem, if only because humans use energy for several purposes. The main uses of energy are lighting and appliances, cooking, heating, and transportation. Of these, we focus on two aspects of energy use that are directly related to everyday life and best reflect the idea of energy access as a basic necessity: access to electricity and clean cooking fuels in households. Transportation fuels are less of an issue for the very poor, as they do not own mechanized vehicles; heating is unnecessary for most of the year in many developing countries. Because the problem of energy poverty is more prevalent in the countryside of the nonindustrialized world, we train our analytical lens on rural areas in developing countries.

  • Results: Part 2

    Biomass data obtained through the application of the methodology showed potential for a newly designed selection process for the most suitable (best) biomass samples. This chapter focuses on data and results obtained by the application of the methodology. It examines the heating values using results obtained via the application of renewable energy analyser one (REA1) methodology. The chapter describes experimental tests that are used to obtain data related to the values of each scientific and technical (S&T) factor for every sample. It presents examples of biomass S&T methodology and reports related to coal and the 15-biomass samples. According to the results obtained by the application of the methodology REA1, the top most suitable biomass samples according to S&T are provided in the chapter. The chapter provides percentage values of biomass samples compared with coal in a ratio of 50% business fitness (BF) and 50% S&T.

  • Economic Factors

    The commercial viability of biomass energy highlights some common factors. There is a positive picture emerging in relation to investments. According to the Global Status Report, worldwide investment in renewable energy is growing fast. A brief outline of major factors to encourage the growth of biomass businesses are examined in this chapter. The chapter explains the basic steps which help to understand the principles of the establishment and the growth of a biomass energy business. Developing highly efficient supply chains for biomass fuel is vital for the success of a biomass energy business. However, the supply chain is not yet fully developed in most countries across the world. Product demand is a yardstick for the success or failure of the biomass fuel production industry and for its future implications. The economic advantages when using Super Fuel sample (SFS) as a biomass fuel are listed in the chapter.
