  1. 1. Enhanced Active Resonant DC Circuit Breakers for HVDC Grids

    Author : Tim Augustin; Hans-Peter Nee; Marley Becerra; Jürgen Biela; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Active damping; Actuator; DC circuit breakers; DC grid; DC power systems; Fast mechanical switch; Fault handling strategy; Gas discharge devices; HVDC; HVDC circuit breakers; Multilevel converters; Multiterminal HVDC; Power transmission; Spark gaps; Thomson-coil actuator; Vacuum interrupter; Voltage Source Converter VSC ; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : High-voltage DC (HVDC) grids are considered promising for the electricity grid expansion required to integrate renewable energy sources into the existing infrastructure. DC fault currents increase rapidly and lack a current zero crossing. READ MORE

  2. 2. Design and control of a DC collection grid for a wind farm

    Author : Lena Max; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : DC collection grid; fault handling; DC DC converter; wind energy; control design; loss evaluation;

    Abstract : In this thesis, the internal DC collection grid for a wind farm is investigated regarding the design, losses and dynamic operation for both normal operating conditions and for different fault conditions. The main advantage for the DC collection grid is the considerably lower weight of the 1 kHz transformers in the DC/DC converters compared to the equivalent 50 Hz transformers. READ MORE

  3. 3. On the Analysis of DC Network Dynamics of VSC-based HVDC Systems

    Author : Gustavo Pinares; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Frequency Domain Analysis; VSC Admittance; Eigenvalue Analysis; DC Grid Impendance; DC Grid Resonance; VSC; HVDC; DC Side Dynamics;

    Abstract : In this thesis, the dc network dynamics of VSC-HVDC systems is investigated through eigenvalue and frequency domain analysis. The eigenvalue analysis has been used to identify the factors that have an impact on the system stability. READ MORE

  4. 4. Energy Evaluation for DC/DC Converters in DC-Based Wind Farms

    Author : Lena Max; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; DC DC converter; loss evaluation; measurements; hard switching converters; wind energy; resonant converters; snubber design;

    Abstract : In this thesis the suitability of three topologies for DC/DC converters in a DC wind farm grid is investigated from an energy efficiency and energy production cost point of view. The three selected topologies are the fullbridge converter, the single active bridge converter and the series parallel resonant converter. READ MORE
