Description

An in-depth examination of large scale wind projects and electricity production in China

  • Presents the challenges of electrical power system planning, design, operation and control carried out by large scale wind power, from the Chinese perspective
  • Focuses on the integration issue of large scale wind power to the bulk power system, probing the interaction between wind power and bulk power systems
  • Wind power development is a burgeoning area of study in developing countries, with much interest in offshore wind farms and several big projects under development
  • English translation of the Chinese language original which won the "Fourth China Outstanding Publication Award nomination" in March 2013
