Power system control and stability with power electronics


The increasing penetration of power electronics brings about new characteristics in power system dynamics and calls for a new perspective for control and stability design. In this seminar, the opportunities, challenges and potential solutions of converter-grid integration for enhanced system stability and flexibility are discussed. Three typical scenarios are investigated from the tail to the top a power network, namely microgrids, wind farms, and transmission systems. A vision on the trends of future technological evolution is also shared.
