Abstract

In recent years, the severity of worldwide environmental problems such as global warming and extreme weather events has intensified, while efforts to reduce adverse environmental impacts and to introduce alternative energy sources to replace fossil fuels have been actively promoted. In the field of electrical energy, distributed power sources that utilize natural and renewable energy sources, such as photovoltaic and wind power generation, as well as biomass power generation and fuel cell technology, continue to be active areas of research and development.
