    Abstract : In order to enable the massive introduction of renewable energies the need for high-voltage direct current (HVDC) grids is anticipated. Large, globally interconnected HVDC networks will likely be the most cost-efficient means to balance electricity demand and available generation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modeling and Design of Modular Multilevel Converters for Grid Applications

    Author : Kalle Ilves; Hans-Peter Nee; Rainer Marquardt; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Modular multilevel converter; feed-forward control; modulation; switching frequency; energy storage;

    Abstract : This thesis aims to bring clarity to the dimensioning aspects and limiting factors of the modular multilevel converter (MMC). Special consideration is given to the dc capacitors in the submodules as they are a driving factor for the size and weight of the converter. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modeling and Design of Modular MultilevelConverters for Grid Applications

    Author : Kalle Ilves; Nee Hans-Peter; Alireza Nami; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Modular multilevel converter; feed-forward control; modulation; switching frequency; energy storage;

    Abstract : Grid-connected high-power converters are found in high-voltage direct current transmission (HVDC), static compensators (STATCOMs), and supplies for electric railways. Such power converters should have a high reliability, high efficiency, good harmonic performance, low cost, and a small footprint. READ MORE

  5. 5. Integrated Compact Drives for Electric and Hybrid Electric Vehicles
