The course aims to develop a broad understanding about the challenges and requirements of integrating renewable generators (RE) to grid, how these requirements can be met using converters, and high voltage direct current (HVDC) as a method of connecting RE to AC grids.
|Session||Second Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
The course covers the main challenges of integrating RE to distribution and transmission systems (like intermittency, power reverse, voltage rise, reactive power, harmonics, and stability issues) and the requirements (based on grid codes) that the RE generators should meet to be allowed to connect to grid (like power factor requirements, voltage and frequency ranges, and fault ride through). It will then study current source converter (CSC) and voltage source converter (VSC) as the main tool to meet the requirements. Finally, high voltage direct current (HVDC) will be studied as an alternative way to integrate large RE generators to grid.
The syllabus is the following:
1. Challenges of RE integrating to distribution and transmission systems 2. RE integration to grid requirements (grid codes) 3. CSC converters (single-phase and three-phase) 4. VSC converters (single-phase and three-phase, modular multi-level converters) 5. HVDC (LCC-HVDC and VSC-HVDC)
