Project Details

Description

This project aims to support the integration of PV systems into the electrical power systems by proposing new, more intelligent converters that are able to interact with the electrical environment at their point of connection. This project addresses this goal by focusing on Smart control of PV systems, by employing new functionalities that prepare PV inverters for the integration into the smart grids of the future, and help comply with the ever more stringent grid requirements in an environment where many other PV systems are connected to the same grid, condition Monitoring and Diagnostics functionalities that monitor the state of the entire PV power system including the PV array, inverter and grid, and feature effective measures to maximize availability and reduce maintenance. Resources: 2 PhD students, 1 PostDoc.
