Power electronic application in smart grids

Yksittäinen kurssi

This course provides an overview and understanding different power electronic converter topologies in different applications in smart grids and their control. In addition, the student has knowledge about control of different type of power electronic solutions during different operation modes like grid-connected and islanded operation. In addition, power system stability supporting control methods are presented in the course as well as control possibilities and needs of converter interfaces during fault situations. You will gain insight into the control and simulation of power electronic converters in such applications.

Course contents

  • Brief introduction to power electronics
  • Different topologies of power electronics converter (AC/DC, DC/DC converter interfaces of distributed energy resources)
  • Power electronic applications and power quality (grid side filters of inverters/converters and their design), PQC – Power quality conditioners, charging of electric vehicles and effect of power quality, FACTS, SVC, STATCOM
  • Wind turbine systems
  • PV system
  • Battery energy storage system
  • Visiting lecturer from industry
  • DC, hybrid AC/DC distribution/Microgrid
  • Power electronics based solid-state transformers for future smart grids, or power electronics based circuit-breakers e.g. for future microgrids
