    From the point of view of grid integration and operation, this monograph advances the subject of wind energy control from the individual-unit to the wind-farm level. The basic objectives and requirements for successful integration of wind energy with existing power grids are discussed, followed by an overview of the state of the art, proposed solutions and challenges yet to be resolved. At the individual-turbine level, a nonlinear controller based on feedback linearization, uncertainty estimation and gradient-based optimization is shown robustly to control both active and reactive power outputs of variable-speed turbines with doubly-fed induction generators. Heuristic coordination of the output of a wind farm, represented by a single equivalent turbine with energy storage to optimize and smooth the active power output is presented. A generic approximate model of wind turbine control developed using system identification techniques is proposed to advance research and facilitate the treatment of control issues at the wind-farm level. A supervisory wind-farm controller is then introduced with a view to maximizing and regulating active power output under normal operating conditions and unusual contingencies. This helps to make the individual turbines cooperate in such as way that the overall output of the farm accurately tracks a reference and/or is statistically as smooth as possible to improve grid reliability. The text concludes with an overall discussion of the promise of advanced wind-farm control techniques in making wind an economic energy source and beneficial influence on grid performance. The challenges that warrant further research are succinctly enumerated. Control and Operation of Grid-Connected Wind Farms is primarily intended for researchers from a systems and control background wishing to apply their expertise to the area of wind-energy generation. At the same time, coverage of contemporary solutions to fundamental operational problems will benefit power/energy engineers endeavoring to promote wind as a reliable and clean source of electrical power.

    UK Delivery

    Completely FREE saver delivery is offered for all orders. Typical delivery time is 3 working days after dispatch. Faster delivery options available at checkout. Please note items may dispatch in separate or combined shipments when purchasing multiple items, also that tracking may or may not be available as we use a range of postal delivery companies and couriers.

    Calculating estimated delivery times

    Delivery is estimated at 1-3 working days after dispatch (depending upon options chosen at checkout) PLUS the "Availability" time estimate given in the product price section at the top of the page. Ex. if this states "Usually Dispatched Within 1 Working Day" and you order at 11am the delivery estimate would be 3 days. Orders from 6pm for example wouldn't process that day so delivery estimate would be 4 days. Also please note that we do not dispatch on the weekend and do not class these as working days.

    International Delivery

    Completely FREE saver worldwide delivery is offered for most orders. Please note items may dispatch in separate shipments. Booksplea.se reserve the right to cancel or amend orders which incur a loss for Booksplea.se.

    Delivery Issues

    What if my order hasn't dispatched within the dispatch time estimate?

    Sorry if this occurs with your order - we are still processing the order and will dispatch ASAP. Typically any delays encountered are for just a 24 hour period. If you wish to cancel the order & source elsewhere please contact us.

    What if my shipment is overdue?

    In the event of 15 working days (25 for non UK customers) passing from the point of dispatch with no goods being received we will confirm the delivery address with yourself and normally would either dispatch a replacement shipment or issue a refund.

    FAQ

    Why is next day delivery not available?

    As the site gets bigger it will be but we don't have sufficient volume to offer this currently.

    Can I collect from your warehouse?

    No sorry. We are internet trading only, previously we did have a bookshop where this was possible.

    How can I enter a coupon code?

    On the cart page under the "Use A Coupon" tab.

    Do you guarantee delivery by a particular date?

    No we don't sorry - we ship to over 100 countries through many different carriers and cannot offer a guarantee that your order will arrive within a particular timeframe.

    Can I order by phone?

    Sorry this isn't available for smaller orders (under £250), the costs of telephone staff don't cover the extra sales generated.

    Do you have fly fishing by JR Hartley?

    Sorry out of stock - if it's not for sale on the site we don't have it. We may add the ability to pre-order titles in the future.

    Are all items held in stock?

    Not all - we have over £900,000 of stock in our warehouse but would need tens of millions of pounds worth of inventory to have just 1 copy of everything for sale on the site. We place daily orders with in excess of 100 publishers and wholesalers who typically deliver into us next day. Also please note if placing a larger order the delivery time frame may slightly increase due to the need to possibly source titles from multiple suppliers. Please note this is the same model used by nearly all online booksellers.

    I'm pleased with your service and want to leave a review of your site?

    Please if you are so inclined leave a review on Google. We seem to have picked up 6 bad reviews and just 4 good ones (from over 170k orders under the booksplease name). Hardly anyone leaves a review for us on there but this is the first thing you see googling our name so we rely on happy customers helping us out.

    I've never ordered off you is it safe?

    It's safe & all will be ok - you may have ordered from us before under our previous selling name "Aphrohead" - we have processed around 18,000,000 orders since the companies formation in 2005. We are located in Southport, UK
