    Power converters constructed from discrete components are difficult to mass produce, and their installation requires a significant labor cost for the proper interconnection among the panel, inverter, and grid. Several critical applications, such as portable power stations (for use on a battlefield or scientific expedition), will require key attributes from a photovoltaic (PV)-based power system, s...

    Plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs), that is, vehicles that use electric motors as their primary means of power, began to be mass-produced in 2011. The need for electric vehicle charging stations [known as electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE)] in industrial and commercial facilities is growing and will continue to grow as the number of PEVs increases. Power system engineers will face many challen... View full abstract»

    This article investigates the magnetic force phenomenon in permanent magnet (PM) wind turbine generators. Due to the presence of PMs, the inherent and ever-existing magnetic force between the stator and rotor becomes one of the most critical phenomena in these generators. Whether it is during the assembly process, throughout the manufacturing stages, or when the generator is in operation, it is es... View full abstract»

    To promote a better understanding of industrial turbine/generator speed control, the fundamentals of droop and isochronous turbine/generator control are discussed via graphical examples for typical industrial islanding applications with bus-connected generators. A mathematical analysis of several examples illustrates the validity of a practical graphical approximation approach. By comprehending th... View full abstract»

    Both the renewable portfolio standard requirements and the potential to delay distribution upgrade expenditures has resulted in a vast increase of distributed energy resources (DERs) on utility systems. As a result, distribution engineers are confronted with the very challenging task of fulfilling the scope of a system impact study to determine whether there exists the potential for the DER to cre...
