The technology development in renewable energy and storage systems will bring a revolution to the electricity system, losing the dependency on big far-from consumption-point generators, that have huge maintenance costs and losses related to the long-distance electricity transportation, as well as the required voltage transformation. Next-to-consumption-point generation should help to improve the quality of electricity service to consumers. This textbook is a compilation of the lessons of the Renewable Energy Grid Integration and Distributed Generation Diploma offered by CIRCE. This study can be found as a specialisation of the European master offered by EUREC (European Association of Renewable Energy Research Centres) given by a consortium of European universities. This first volume gives basic theory and practical knowledge about electric energy, in order to unify the starting point and to form a base for later concepts. The electricity network, stability and power grid quality are introduced as well as the effects of renewable energy on the grid. Additionally the concept of distributed generation is presented.
