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.
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. After a short broad overview on the topic “power electronics and applications and current challenges”, the main focus will be an in-depth discussion on DC/DC converter architectures and operating modes.
Development and validation of information and communication technology-based solutions in the context of energy systems can become a complicated task, especially when different domains such as energy markets, automation and control as well as technical boundary conditions come together and require to be addressed in a systematic way. In the last decade, different approaches have been worked out that provide reference architectures in which new solutions can be planned, developed, documented and even tested.
