The penetration of distributed generation is poised to grow substantially in the future, especially in developing countries. To promote generation of electricity using renewable resources, a system level approach to the problem needs to be developed. Moreover, the developed approach should imbibe features of simplicity, generality and flexibility as well. A simple and generalized methodology for sizing the components of an isolated wind-based system has been proposed through this book. The depiction of the solution set termed as ‘design space’ brings out the clarity of consequences when a particular solution point is selected in comparison to any other. It can aid the planner/decision-maker in selecting a global optimal solution in the light of various constraints.
