Test/simulation approaches are expanded and optimized due to the latest technologies such as real time systems, power electronics, analogous/digital measurement devices. Novel simulation techniques gain increasing importance in research and for manufacturers and for international standardisation groups.
The availability of appropriate, application-oriented standards and codes is a key prerequisite to streamline the integration of PV into the electricity grids and ensure interoperability, reliability and efficiency even under high-penetration scenarios.
There is a continuously growing demand for electricity, which must be satisfied by the electric energy systems worldwide. At the same time, a stable supply must be guaranteed. The current situation with CO2 emissions and global warming has created an obvious trend towards a sustainable electric energy system. The integration of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) is an important requirement.
This course addresses the role of wide bandgap semiconductors for power electronics will be introduced. Furthermore, basic principles of these semiconductors but also IGBTs and MOSFETs will be discussed. Drivers and challenges regarding power electronics and integration as well as a more global perspective on this technology will address the potential of this technology.
Starting with a recap of “Control of grid power converters for Photovoltaic applications” the course provides insight in real-time simulation of power converters and implementation of algorithms which have been discussed in theory.
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.
In this workshop, attendees will get initial insights in the PLECs power electronics simulation tool for modelling and simulating power electronics converters. Furthermore, knowledge on analysis and simulation from lecture 1 will be extended AC/DC multi-phase systems including also state-of-the-art three-phase power electronic circuits for renewable energy systems. Also, single phase AC/DC inverters for PV-applications will be discussed. Moreover, input and output filter design issues will be addressed.
In this lecture, participants will be introduced into state-of-the-art DC/DC power electronic converters.
