  3. 3. Efficient Modeling of Modular Multilevel Converters for HVDC Transmission Systems

    Author : Noman Ahmed; Hans-Peter Nee; Tim Green; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; High-Voltage dc; Modular Multilevel Converter; Voltage-Source Converter; HVDC Grids; Multiterminal DC Systems; Hybrid HVDC Breaker; Modeling; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : The drive towards getting more and more electrical energy from renewable sources, requires more efficient electric transmission systems. A stronger grid, with more controllability and higher capacity, that can handle power fluctuations due to a mismatch between generation and load is also needed. READ MORE

  4. 4. Control, Modulation and Implementation of Modular Multilevel Converters

    Author : Antonios Antonopoulos; Hans-Peter Nee; Colin Oates; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Modular Multilevel Converter; Modulation; Feedback Control; Open-Loop Control; Implementation; Prototype; High-Performance Motor Drives; Electrical engineering; electronics and photonics; Elektroteknik; elektronik och fotonik;

    Abstract : Denna avhandling behandlar analys och styrning av den modulära multinivå omvandlaren (M2C). M2C är en lovande omvandlarteknologi för högspända högeffekttillämpningar. Anledningen till detta är låg distorsion i utstorheterna kan uppnås med låg  medelswitchfrekvens per switch och utan utgångsfilter. READ MORE
