Presents Fundamentals of Modeling, Analysis, and Control ofElectric Power Converters for Power System Applications Electronic (static) power conversion has gained widespreadacceptance in power systems applications; electronic powerconverters are increasingly employed for power conversion andconditioning, compensation, and active filtering. This bookpresents the fundamentals for analysis and control of a specificclass of high-power electronic converters the three-phasevoltage-sourced converter (VSC). Voltage-Sourced Converters inPower Systems provides a necessary and unprecedented link betweenthe principles of operation and the applications of voltage-sourcedconverters.
The book: * Describes various functions that the VSC can perform inelectric power systems * Covers a wide range of applications of the VSC in electricpower systems including wind power conversion systems * Adopts a systematic approach to the modeling and control designproblems * Illustrates the control design procedures and expectedperformance based on a comprehensive set of examples and digitalcomputer time-domain simulation studies This comprehensive text presents effective techniques formathematical modeling and control design, and helps readersunderstand the procedures and analysis steps. Detailed simulationcase studies are included to highlight the salient points andverify the designs. Voltage-Sourced Converters in Power Systems is an idealreference for senior undergraduate and graduate students in powerengineering programs, practicing engineers who deal with gridintegration and operation of distributed energy resource units,design engineers, and researchers in the area of electric powergeneration, transmission, distribution, and utilization.
