Abstract: Microgrids as distribution networks with distributed energy sources have gained significant interest over the past 20 years. The energy sources are predominantly renewable energy sources, most of which are interfaced with the network through power electronics converters. AC/DC converters are conventionally regulated by fixed parameter proportional integral (PI) controllers designed off-line for a nominal operating condition. Their performance is affected by the change of parameters of passive components depending on temperature and operating conditions. Thus, they cannot provide good converter performance over its entire operating range. Converter performance can be improved by using adaptive control that can track the operating conditions in real-time. An adaptive controller that determines, in real-time, the parameters of the system model transfer function and computes control to match the system parameters is proposed. Converter performance in a hierarchical control environment in a microgrid is described.

Control of Power-Electronics Based Renewable Energy Sources


Biography: Prof. Om P. Malik (Life Fellow, IEEE) received the bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering and the M.E. degree in electrical machine design from the University of Roorkee, Roorkee, India, in 1952 and 1962, respectively, the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the Imperial College, London, U.K., in 1965. In 1968, he joined the University of Calgary, Calgary, AB, Canada, where he is currently a Professor Emeritus with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He was acting Dean of the Faculty of Engineering in 1981, Associate Dean (Academic) from July 1979 to December 1990. He was President IEEE (Canada) for 2010-2011 and President, Engineering Institute of Canada for 2014-16. He is a fellow of the Engineering Institute of Canada, the Canadian Academy of Engineering, and the Institution of Electrical Engineers. He is also actively involved in IFAC and is currently the Chair of the IFAC Technical Committee on Power Plants. Prof. Malik has done pioneering work in the development of adaptive controllers for application in electric power systems and protection schemes for power systems.
