Weather to Energy: A Complex Voyage gathers several vertically integrated disciplines into one voice to allow new researchers to become involved in renewable energy studies, covering the basics needed to jump into the field, from electrical load data to weather model data. As the research for optimizing weather-driven renewable energies requires great knowledge of certain disciplines, such as economics, mathematics, atmospheric physics, statistics, fluid dynamics, power modeling, and engineering, this book brings together all the salient information that is beneficial for all scientists who either want to/or already work in this field, helping them come up with useful results. The book's aim is to inspire new research in the area of renewable energy for interested scientists who may not have the required skills in all areas regarding renewables. Collates research and difficult concepts in a friendly, but technical, manner to serve as a handy reference guide Includes chapters on weather analysis, including prediction, assimilation and modeling

About The Author
