Description

The first of its kind, this book will introduce the main technical issues of variable frequency transformers (VFT) systematically, including its basic construction, theory equations, and simulation models. Readers will then gain an in-depth discussion of its control system, operation performance, low frequency power oscillation, and technical economics, before proceeding to practical implementation and future developments. The related concepts of energy revolution, third generation grids, and power system interconnection are discussed as well. An emergent technology, this timely guide will give a complete overview of the state of the art for VFT as it is increasingly adopted in smart grids.
