  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

  3. 3. Measurement, Modeling, and Characterization for Energy-Efficient Computing

    Author : Bhavishya Goel; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; power-aware scheduling; power estimation; transactional memory; power measurement; power management; energy characterization;

    Abstract : The ever-increasing ecological footprint of Information Technology (IT) sector coupled with adverse effects of high power consumption on electronic circuits has increased the significance of energy-efficient computing in the last decade. Making energy-efficient computing a norm rather than an exception requires that system designers and programmers understand the energy implications of their design and implementation choices.

  4. 4. Cold-Electron Bolometer with Superconductor-Insulator-Normal Metal Tunnel Junctions

    Author : Ian Jasper Agulo; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; temperature sensitivity; cryogenfree; power sensitivity; noise equivalent power; cold-electron bolometer; SIN tunnel junctions; electron cooling;

    Abstract : The Cold-Electron Bolometer (CEB) is an ultrasensitive device designed for the detection of radiation in the terahertz region of the electromagnetic spectrum. The key to its sensitivity is the electron cooling of the absorber by the superconductor-insulator-normal metal (SIN) tunnel junction. READ MORE

  5. 5. Wind Power - Added Value for Network Operation

    Author : Nayeem Ullah; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; torsional oscillation; reactive power ancillary service; voltage stability; power system simulator.; STATCOM; non-minimum phase system; Variable speed wind turbine; frequency control; sensitivity analysis; transient stability; small-signal stability;

    Abstract : This dissertation deals with the investigation on different value added properties of variable speed wind turbines (VSWT) that stem from the flexible controllability of converter interfaced wind turbines (WT). Improvements in voltage and transient stability of a nearby grid, small-signal stability improvement on the power system, frequency control support for the network operation, as well as thetechnical and the economic issues related to the reactive power ancillary service provision, are among the issues covered.
