Associate Professor Sanjay Chaudhary, Aalborg University
Professor Massimo Bongiorno, Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden.

ECTS: 4

Description  

MMC has been established as the technology of choice for HVDC, large utility scale STATCOM and Multil-MW drives. This course will present the fundamentals, dynamics, modelling and simulation, modulation, control and balancing as well as control under unbalanced grid. Control and operation challenges for MMC application in HVDC, STATCOM and DRIVES will be also presented. The course structure is:

Day 1: MMC fundamentals, topologies and design

Day 2: Modulation techniques (PSPWM, NLC+Sorting, Model Predictive Sorting)

Day 3: Control and balancing

Day 4 Applications of MMC (HVDC, STATCOM, DRIVES)

Around 40 % of the time will be spent in exercises using PLECS and Simulink models. A demonstration of several MMC applications will be organized in the state of the art MMC Laboratory
