Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) methods for Power System Components (methods)

Lecturer: Georg Lauss, AIT

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.

Modern ICT/Automation Approaches for Smart Grids and Industrial Environments

Modern ICT/Automation Approaches for Smart Grids and Industrial Environments

Lecturer: Thomas Strasser

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.

Emerging Technologies for Power Electronics Systems in Smart Grids

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.

Simulation and modelling of Power Converters and Power Conversation Systems

Simulation and modeling of Power Converters and Power Conversation Systems

Lecturer: DI Zoran Miletić, AIT 

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.

Grid power converters, architecture and design considerations

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.
