|Title:||Grid integration of wind turbines||Authors:||Shi, Enrui.||Keywords:||DRNTU::Engineering||Issue Date:||2013||Abstract:||In today’s world, energy demand has increased tremendously and hence as a result there is an increase in the demand of fuel for the power plants. However this not only creates the problem of price hike in the fuel, it also causes the environmental pollution from the burning of the fuels. These environmental problems have always been a concern in many countries worldwide and hence people have been seeking for environmentally clean alternative energy resources. There are abundant natural resources around the world today and some of these energy resources can be tapped on as a source of electrical power. Wind energy is one of these sources of energy and is being developed world-wide for many years. The wind energy industry is rapidly rising with a worldwide wind capacity of 237,016 Megawatt and the wind power could supply up to an estimate of 12% of electricity worldwide by 2020. In Singapore, Economic Development Board (EDB) had pumped in S$350million to support the growth in clean energy industry in 2007. This industry has also attracted large energy firms to Singapore and one of them is Spanish wind giant Gamesa. In addition the Government has encouraged the development of renewable energy (RE) by building R&D infrastructure and test-bedding platforms and launching energy R&D programmes. With the advancement of the wind energy industry, it can not only generate revenue but also create more jobs for the people.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/53135||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
