This paper analyses the requirements for load balancing of a new transformer-less grid interface topology for large-scale electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructures. The proposed configuration utilizes a Modular Multilevel Converter (MMC) to supply wireless EV chargers from each module. The...

In this chapter, we discuss a modular approach for state-space modeling and eigenvalue-based analysis of small-signal dynamics in DC grids. We first introduce the requirements for state-space representation and linearization together with the fundamental properties of eigenvalues and corresponding...

This paper presents a Virtual Synchronous Machine (VSM)-based control method for avoiding dc-side power oscillations in grid connected voltage source converters (VSCs) when operating under under unbalanced conditions. The proposed implementation is based on a Current Controlled VSM (CCVSM) where the...

In this paper we present a purely data-based algorithm for power system oscillation damping using generation rescheduling. The algorithm builds a database over historically observed operating states with known sufficient damping. In case an operating state with poor damping is observed, the...

Wide area monitoring, protection and control systems will likely be implemented in future transmission control rooms and will be essential to ensure the correct operation of the power systems. These solutions will heavily rely on the application of Phasor Measurement Units and synchrophasors. Thus...

This paper presents a methodology for assessing the performance of Intelligent Electronic Devices under stressed conditions in a digital substation. The performance is characterized as the time response in sending an output GOOSE message triggered by a received input GOOSE message or alternatively...

This paper presents an approach for assessing the most suitable locations to provide virtual inertia by HVDC converters. A frequency deviation index quantifying the maximum distance in Hz from each bus in the power system to the Center of Inertia (COI) is utilized as the starting point of the...

In this paper we introduce an approach to accelerate many-scenario (i.e., hundreds to thousands) power system simulations which is based on a highly scalable and flexible open-source software environment. In this approach, the parallel execution of simulations follows the single program, multiple...
