Book Description

The book aims to equalize the theoretical involvement with industrial practicality and build a bridge between academia and industry by reducing the mathematical difficulties. It provides an overview of distributed control and distributed optimization theory, followed by specific details on industrial applications to smart grid systems, with a special focus on micro grid systems. Each of the chapters is written and organized with an introductory section tailored to provide the essential background of the theories required. The text includes industrial applications to realistic renewable energy systems problems and illustrates the application of proposed toolsets to control and optimization of smart grid systems.

This book provides a nice bridge between pure control theory and practical implementation of various control strategies for MG's. It gives very good technical depth and illustrates the theory being implemented to provide the reader not only familiar with control theory, but those working with MG's in general, with an accessible book on MG controls that ties control theory together with physical , implementations making this book worthwhile reading not only for MG software developers, but for MG developers in general.
