Market with Changing Prices

While classical energy markets are characterized by a strong regulation, with central­ized power control being adequate, recent trends point in directions with increased degrees of freedom. An example is provided by distributed power grids with some degree of authority among local producers and energy markets with varying prices. Figure 8.3 illustrates a typical problem posed […]

The Context of Renewable Energy Production

The importance of control of DCSFs, and of adaptive control in particular, may perhaps be only fully understood by considering the wider context of renewable energy production. Of course, control is required to maintain energy production plants in a state that is adequate for their objectives, while ensuring equipment integrity and an extended useful life, […]
