    Artificial Intelligence for Smarter Power Systems

    Fuzzy logic and neural networks  
    Marcelo Godoy Simões  2021

    This book covers the use of fuzzy logic for power grids. Power systems need to accommodate intermittent renewables and changes in loads while ensuring high power quality. Fuzzy logic uses values between 0 and 1 rather than binary ones, offering advantages in adaptability for energy systems with renewables.

    Hydrogen Passivation and Laser Doping for Silicon Solar Cells

    Brett Hallam, Catherine Chan  2021

    Photovoltaic electricity generation is a rapidly growing industry, and a key pillar of a decarbonized energy system. Lasers are used to dope the semiconductor layers in solar cells, and it is necessary to passivate these laser-induced structures to prevent premature charge carrier recombination. This book conveys passivation techniques.
