About the Authors
  • Gain an in-depth understanding of converter-interfaced energy storage systems with this unique text, covering modelling, dynamic behaviour, control, and stability analysis. Providing comprehensive coverage, it demonstrates the technical and economic aspects of energy storage systems, and provides a thorough overview of energy storage technologies. Several different modelling techniques are presented, including power system models, voltage-sourced converter models, and energy storage system models. Using a novel stochastic control approach developed by the authors, you will learn about the impact of energy storage on the dynamic interaction of microgrids with distribution and transmission systems. Compare the numerous real-world simulation data and numerical examples provided with your own models and control strategies. Accompanied online by a wealth of numerical examples and supporting data, this is the ideal text for graduate students, researchers, and industry professionals working in power system dynamics, renewable energy integration, and smart grid development.

    • The first book to focus on the dynamic modelling and analysis of converter-interfaced energy storage devices
    • Covers control techniques and stability analysis
    • Includes real-world case studies, simulation results, and numerical examples
    • Numerical examples and supporting data is available online at

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This is a timely and impressive book on an emerging and important topic. The comprehensive and in-depth overview of energy storage technologies, modelling, and dynamic simulation will make the book a valuable reference for practicing engineers and researchers working with the planning and operation of the future electric power system. The extensive list of references will be of great help for deepened studies.' Göran Andersson, Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich

    'Energy storage systems (ESS) are considered by many as the Holy Grail of the upcoming decarbonised future. From rooftop PV microsystems to giant pumped storage units, virtually all ESS are expected to be interfaced through power converters, for the sake of added flexibility and efficiency. This volume, co-authored by one of the most recognized experts in modelling, analysis and control of power systems dynamic phenomena, constitutes a self-contained and unique blend of general concepts, motivating factors and technical details, satisfying in this way the interests of a wide audience and filling an important gap in the technical literature.' Antonio Gomez-Exposito, Universidad de Sevilla

    'Excellent and timely material written by experienced authors! You must read this book.' Jean Mahseredjian, Polytechnique Montréal
