Power Electronics Grid Connected Converters Intelligent Control
January 31 @ 4:45 pm - 5:45 pm
Single and three-phase grid-connected converters are widely used in energy conversion systems such as renewable energies systems, electrical vehicles, active filters, etc… Maintaining a good power quality level in modern electric grid remains the greatest challenge in front of the nonstop harmonic pollution generated by operating nonlinear systems. Traditionally, grid-connected converters are controlled with conventional vector control methods. However, several limitations are associated with these mechanisms especially in their applicability to dynamic systems. Advanced non-linear controllers were introduced also for this behalf. Several control techniques applied for the grid connectivity applications will be discussed. Recently, the mitigation towards intelligent-based controllers started to gain more and more attention and to be integrated in the control of the grid connected converters. On this behalf, an overview about the latest advances in this field will be discussed. Speaker(s): Dr. Fadia Sebaaly, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/301714
