The Front Cover

Wind energy is providing the world’s fastest growing power source for electricity generation. It is clean, indefinitely renewable and abundant; however, it is also intermittent, and it is this intermittent nature that brings with it the biggest challenges for successfully integrating wind energy into the power grid.  On page 7 you will find an article about capacitive and inductive compensation for reliable integration to resolve this problem
