Scope: Demand for on-site and alternative power generation is growing, fuelled by government and public pressure to increase generation from renewable sources and energy efficient plant, and by the potential economic benefits resulting from privatisation and deregulation of the supply sector. This book is a practical, course-derived guide that covers all aspects of embedded (or dispersed) generation, from prime mover characteristics to network reliability modelling. Topics include power quality, protection, reliability and economics. It is essential reading for practising engineers planning, designing or specifying embedded generation solutions.

Book review

"....an excellent book" Power Engineering Journal

" 'Embedded Generation' will be essential reading for any research group working in the field: but more than that, it should be on the bookshelf of practising power engineers." IEE Review

"Embedded Generation is an important book, collating a variety of useful information based on...broad industrial and academic experience...an interesting read rather than just a dry academic text. Researchers in energy policy as well as electrical engineering students will find that the issues raised in Embedded Generation show that this is an exciting field in the industry and a necessary area for further research." Electrical Review

"[An] important book, collating a variety of useful information based on... broad industrial and academic experience." Electrical Review
