Control of grid power converters for Photovoltaic applications

Lecturer: DI Zoran Miletić, AIT 

Converters for photovoltaic applications have been used in the electricity grid for several years. The integration of these systems requires base functionalities which are discussed in this lecture. Due to the AC-nature of the electricity grid the synchronization with the power system 50 Hz fundamental frequency is mandatory for single phase and 3-phase operation. Starting from this point the continuous operation by regulating the power delivery is discussed. Finally, various methods of islanding detection, the coordinated shut down during grid outage, as a safety function are presented. The course builds a foundation for subsequent lectures in the SINERGY project.
