  1. 1. Modeling, Control and Protection of Low-Voltage DC Microgrids

    Author : Daniel Salomonsson; Lennart Söder; Brian K. Johnsson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; circuit transient analysis; dc power systems; dispersed storage and generation; load modeling; power conversion; power distribution control; power distribution faults; power distribution protection; power electronics; Electric power engineering; Elkraftteknik;

    Abstract : Current trends in electric power consumption indicate an increasing use of dc in end-user equipment, such as computers and other electronic appliances used in households and offices. With a dc power system, ac/dc conversion within these loads can be avoided, and losses reduced. READ MORE

  2. 2. Power-generation, Power-electronics and Power-systems issues of Power Converters for Photovoltaic Applications

    Author : Björn Lindgren; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : power systems; bang-bang control; shading tolerance; power quality; photovoltaic; embedded generation; current control; solar power generation;

    Abstract : The thesis deals with issues related to solar energy systems, or more specifically, the electric systems of photovoltaic (PV) installations. Initially aspects of planning and estimating the performance of a PV-installation are considered. READ MORE

    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

  4. 4. Cooling Strategies for Wave Power Conversion Systems

    Author : Antoine Baudoin; Cecilia Boström; Anne Blavette; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Wave power; power conversion system; thermal management; power elctronics; passive cooling; natural convection.;

    Abstract : The Division for Electricity of Uppsala University is developing a wave power concept. The energy of the ocean waves is harvested with wave energy converters, consisting of one buoy and one linear generator. The units are connected in a submerged substation. The mechanical design is kept as simple as possible to ensure reliability. READ MORE
