  1. 1. Hydropower plants and power systems : Dynamic processes and control for stable and efficient operation

    Author : Weijia Yang; Per Norrlund; Urban Lundin; Christophe Nicolet; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : As the largest global renewable source, hydropower shoulders a large portion of the regulation duty in many power systems. New challenges are emerging from variable renewable energy (VRE) sources, the increasing scale and complexity of hydropower plants (HPPs) and power grid. READ MORE

  2. 2. Grid frequency stability from a hydropower perspective

    Author : Elin Dahlborg; Per Norrlund; Urban Lundin; Linn Saarinen; Katherine Elkington; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Frequency control; frequency stability; grid codes; hydropower; inertia; Kaplan unit; model validation; Engineering Science with specialization in Science of Electricity; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot elektricitetslära;

    Abstract : Many AC grids suffer from decreased frequency stability due to less system inertia. This has increased the risk of large-scale blackouts. This thesis and its papers address the frequency stability problem from a hydropower perspective.Grid frequency stability assessments often require accurate system inertia estimates. READ MORE

  3. 3. Tribology of self-lubricating polymer composites for hydropower applications

    Author : Maria Rodiouchkina; Jens Hardell; Kim Berglund; Jan Ukonsaari; Michał Wasilczuk; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; polymer composites; hydropower; sliding wear; sliding friction; self-lubricating; transfer layers; material characterization; surface analysis; high contact pressure; low sliding speed; Machine Elements; Maskinelement;

    Abstract : The ongoing global climate crisis and its impacts calls for urgent actions, such as significant reduction of CO2 emissions by introducing more renewable energy. This has led to a rapid integration of variable power sources, such as wind and solar power, into the electricity systems. READ MORE

  4. 4. A hydropower perspective on flexibility demand and grid frequency control

    Author : Linn Saarinen; Urban Lundin; Bengt Carlsson; Per Norrlund; Evert Agneholm; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; hydropower; frequency control; balancing; Engineering Science with specialization in Science of Electricity; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot elektricitetslära;

    Abstract : The production and consumption of electricity on the power grid has to balance at all times. Slow balancing, over days and weeks, is governed by the electricity market and carried out through production planning.  Fast balancing, within the operational hour, is carried out by hydropower plants operating in frequency control mode.

  5. 5. Internal Design of a Class of Self-Excited Synchronous Generators

    Author : Mohamed Wadi; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Soft Magnetic Composites; Hydropower Plants; Brushless Excitation; Self-Excited Generators; Renewable Energy; Reluctance Generators; Synchronous Generators; Small Hydropower;

    Abstract : INTERNAL DESIGN OF A CLASS OF SELF-EXCITEDABSTRACTWith the increasing trend of distributed generation and the need for alternative and renewable energy sources, self-excited induction and synchronous reluctance generators have attracted more attention for wind, tidal and hydropower applications. This thesis is concerned with the development of a class of self-excited synchronous reluctance generators (SRG). READ MORE
