Power Electronic Converters for Solar Photovoltaic Systems provides design and implementation procedures for power electronic converters and advanced controllers to improve standalone and grid environment solar photovoltaics performance. Sections cover performance and improvement of solar photovoltaics under various conditions with the aid of intelligent controllers, allowing readers to better understand the nuances of power electronic converters for renewable energy systems. With algorithm development and real-time implementation procedures, this reference is useful for those interested in power electronics for performance improvement in distributed energy resources, design of advanced controllers, and measurement of critical parameters surrounding renewable energy systems. By providing a complete solution for performance improvement in solar PV with novel control techniques, this book will appeal to researchers and engineers working in power electronic converters, renewable energy, and power quality. The focus of this study is the perception of nature in the language of poetry and the languages of natural philosophy, technology, theology, and global exploration, primarily in seventeenth-century England. Its premise is that language and the perception of nature vitally affect each other and that seventeenth-century poets, primarily John Milton, Andrew Marvell, and Henry Vaughan, but also Margaret Cavendish, Thomas Traherne, Anne Finch, and others, responded to experimental proto-science and new technology in ways that we now call 'ecological' - concerned with watersheds and habitats and the lives of all creatures. It provides close readings of works by these poets in the contexts of natural history, philosophy, and theology as well as technology and land use, showing how they responded to what are currently considered ecological issues: deforestation, mining, air pollution, drainage of wetlands, destruction of habitats, the sentience and intelligence of animals, overbuilding, global commerce, the politics of land use, and relations between social justice and justice towards the other-than-human world. In this important book, Diane McColley demonstrates the language of poetry, the language of responsible science, and the language of moral and political philosophy all to be necessary parts of public discourse.
