Desciption

Voltage Source Converters (VSCs) have commonly been used with renewable power sources, flexible ac and dc power transmission or distribution systems, regenerative drives, and transportation electrification. As the increasing use of VSCs in electrical grids, the dynamic characterizations of VSCs are playing a critical role in building a stable and resilient power-electronic-based power system. This course thus devotes to cover the fundamentals and state-of-the-art of modeling, stability analysis, and control topics for the VSCs in the grid-connected applications.  

  • Vector current control
  • Grid synchronization and direct voltage control
  • Impedance-based modeling and validation
  • Stability of current control with LCL-filters
  • Stability impacts of grid synchronization and direct voltage control
  • Active stabilizing techniques for VSC-fed systems

Prerequisites

Prior knowledge of power electronics fundamentals, feedback control theory, and three-phase systems is preferred.
