Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems have experienced a tremendous increase in installed capacity in the past decade. Although solar PV power is environmentally friendly and can be used to extend the life of fossil fuel reserves, it is of an intermittent nature. Through nine chapters, this book provides an understanding of solar PV systems’ power output intermittency and its impacts on power systems. The first part of the book highlights the source of the variability of both solar irradiation and PV systems’ output, while the second highlights the impact of factors such as temperature and dust on PV systems’ output variability through case studies. The third part highlights the impacts of PV systems’ output variability of the design and operation of power systems. This book will appeal to students, researchers, operators, engineers, designers, and policymakers working on solar PV or electric power systems design, planning, or operation.

This book addresses important topical questions of microgrids and local energy systems. It begins with an investigation of the electrical protection of microgrids followed by a study of the power converters used and the utilization of multi-objective optimization for the selection of component ratings. Subsequent chapters address peer-to-peer energy trading in microgrids, local district heating and cooling systems, neighborhood generators used to supplement the utility electricity supplies in Iraq, and regulatory impediments to micro-wind generation in the United States.

The world's deserts are sufficiently large that, in theory, covering a fraction of their landmass with PV systems could generate many times the current primary global energy supply. In three parts, this study details the background and concept of VLS-PV, maps out a development path towards the realization of VLS-PV systems and provides firm recommendations to achieve long-term targets. This represents the first study to provide a concrete set of answers to the questions that must be addressed in order to secure and exploit the potential for VLS-PV technology and its global benefits.

This book contains the proceedings of the Second International Conference on Integrated Sciences and Technologies (IMDC-IST-2021). Where held on 7th–9th Sep 2021 in Sakarya, Turkey. This conference was organized by University of Bradford, UK and Southern Technical University, Iraq. The papers in this conference were collected in a proceedings book entitled: Proceedings of the second edition of the International Multi-Disciplinary Conference Theme: “Integrated Sciences and Technologies” (IMDC-IST-2021). The presentation of such a multi-discipline conference provides a lot of exciting insights and new understanding on recent issues in terms of Green Energy, Digital Health, Blended Learning, Big Data, Meta-material, Artificial-Intelligence powered applications, Cognitive Communications, Image Processing, Health Technologies, 5G Communications. Referring to the argument, this conference would serve as a valuable reference for future relevant research activities. The committee acknowledges that the success of this conference are closely intertwined by the contributions from various stakeholders. As being such, we would like to express our heartfelt appreciation to the keynote speakers, invited speakers, paper presenters, and participants for their enthusiastic support in joining the second edition of the International Multi-Disciplinary Conference Theme: “Integrated Sciences and Technologies” (IMDC-IST-2021). We are convinced that the contents of the study from various papers are not only encouraged productive discussion among presenters and participants but also motivate further research in the relevant subject. We appreciate for your enthusiasm to attend our conference and share your knowledge and experience. Your input was important in ensuring the success of our conference. Finally, we hope that this conference serves as a forum for learning in building togetherness and academic networks. Therefore, we expect to see you all at the next IMDC-IST.

This book provides a platform for scientists and engineers to comprehend the technologies of solar wind hybrid renewable energy systems and their applications. It describes the thermodynamic analysis of wind energy systems, and advanced monitoring, modeling, simulation, and control of wind turbines. Based on recent hybrid technologies considering wind and solar energy systems, this book also covers modeling, design, and optimization of wind solar energy systems in conjunction with grid-connected distribution energy management systems comprising wind photovoltaic (PV) models. In addition, solar thermochemical fuel generation topology and evaluation of PV wind hybrid energy for a small island are also included in this book. Since energy storage plays a vital role in renewable energy systems, another salient part of this book addresses the methodology for sizing hybrid battery-backed power generation systems in off-grid connected locations. Furthermore, the book proposes solutions for sustainable rural development via passive solar housing schemes, and the impacts of renewable energies in general, considering social, economic, and environmental factors. Because this book proposes solutions based on recent challenges in the area of hybrid renewable technologies, it is hoped that it will serve as a useful reference to readers who would like to be acquainted with new strategies of control and advanced technology regarding wind solar hybrid systems

This book contains papers presented at the International Symposium on Urban Development held in the Kurdistan region of Iraq, organised by the Faculty of Engineering at Koya University. The Kurdistan region is rich in oil, gas, mineral resources and underground water. However, until recently the political and security issues were such that the region was unable to take advantage of those resources. Nowadays, Kurdistan is emerging as one of the fastest developing areas in the Middle East, with its universities playing a major role in this process. The aim of the meeting was to focus the research carried out at academic and government institutions with the needs of Society. The International Symposium papers included in this volume cover a wide range of topics and are written by people with different specialisations and perspectives.
