Control of Microgrids

This course addresses the main types of controllers for grid forming inverters. Real-time simulations with Typhoon HIL will be presented to demonstrate and compare their performances using a test driven design. This makes it possible to cover different operating conditions in a automated fashion, including steady-state and transient responses, in both grid connected and island mode.

Digital Control of Grid-Tied Converters

Systems operators frequently update grid codes to ensure power quality and grid security. Consequently, power converter manufacturer have to design reliable products with reduced time-to-market in a competitive environment.

Course has an easy but strong material with important knowledge for the next generation of Power Electronics

The course has good handouts, the videos on-demand help to pause, take notes and search more about the important subjects presented in the course.

“Download environment_setup.zip file and extract on your computer.”

In my case, I couldn’t complete the introductory Quiz due to a 404 error message that I got when trying to do so!

If anyone can help, that would be great!

Concepts were explained in a clear manner.

I observe that there was a missing constant in the droop control for voltage differential equation. Please refer 5.1-Inductive-Droop.pdf page 13. The voltage differential equation second term 'a' is missing. Can you please check and update me if I am wrong. That same equation followed for the rest of the model implementation. Please let me know the effect of results in case my observation is true

to learn Microgrid

For the sake of clarity and to facilitate learning, it would be preferable to develop a fully functional AC and DC microgrid, complete with a variety of resources and a demonstration of the construction process. since it's free, and hence many students will be able to learn more quickly.

Good contribution about GFM inverter technology but lack of instruction the example models and instruction

I would like to play with simulation models for these control technology of inverters. In addition, there is no instruction to make a report and comparison with the downloadable files. Even, I think only one test case is included in the attached file but it does not work to generate the report.

This is a very Powerful course

All i would say is this course is excellent if you really want to understand what it means to design, control and evaluate the performance of a grid-tied inverter. The content is deep and covers complex aspects like 2 and 3-level inverter SVM for DSP. I appreciate that nothing was left behind in terms of providing the source code for both the converter design and controllers.Thanks

Very interesting course

A very interesting course! It would be good to include a module where the learner could actually develop in a guided manner one (or more) of the control approaches that were presented. Thanks for the course!

The course gives a basic to deep level understanding of the control of a grid connected converter

The course content is very good and informative. But the video lectures are too fast to follow and a more detail presentation will help more to understand the theory well.
