  1. 1. Protection for Multiterminal HVDC Grids - A Digital Contribution

    Author : Ilka Jahn; Staffan Norrga; Hans-Peter Nee; Dirk Westermann; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HVDC transmission; power system protection; IED; real-time systems; test bench; field programmable gate array; open-source hardware; open-source software; power engineering education; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis is to (1) enhance understanding of mechanisms that are important for the protection of high-voltage direct-current (HVDC) grids, and (2) suggest possible technical solutions. To that end, digital technologies were used both in simulation, as well as in a laboratory environment. READ MORE

  2. 2. Benefits of Coordinating Plug-In Electric Vehicles in Electric Power Systems : Through Market Prices and Use-of-System Network Charges

    Author : Ilan Momber; Lennart Söder; Tomás Gómez San Román; José Villar Collado; KTH; []

  4. 4. Dialogues on the Net - Power structures in asynchronous discussions in the context of a web based teacher training course

    Author : Annette Johnsson; Utbildningsvetenskap; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; minority; cultural background; sex; ethnicity; gender; age; socio-economic; dialogicity; web based; computer based; CMC; net based; asynchronous; CSCL; teacher education; power structures; dialogues; Group work; team work; symbolic capital; group work;

    Abstract : The general aim of this thesis is to investigate the interaction processes that occur in group dialogues when teacher students work in small groups, using net based asynchronous dialogues to solve a problem in the area of environmental sustainability. More specifically, the interest is to determine whether students’ net based dialogues give rise to patterns of dominance/subordination similar to those observed in face-to-face situations. READ MORE

  5. 5. Spatially explicit electrification modelling insights : Applications, benefits, limitations and an open tool for geospatial electrification modelling

    Author : Dimitris Mentis; Mark I. Howells; Sonia Yeh; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energiteknik; Energy Technology;

    Abstract : Developing countries confront the challenge of generating more electricity to meet demands in a sustainable manner. According to the World Bank’s 2015 Global Tracking Framework, roughly 15% of world population (or 1.1 billion people) lack access to electricity, and many more rely on poor quality electricity supplies.
