Optimal Sizing on a Mission Profile of Isolated NPC DC-DC Converters using 3.3 kV SiC MOSFETs for Power Electronic Traction Transformers
A reduction of 13 % of the total energy loss on a typical journey can be obtained by optimising the design of the DC/DC converter on a mission profile rather than at nominal power.
Seddik Bacha gives keynote address at PCIM Europe 2021 on HVDC grid challenges, locks and opportunities
The PCIM Europe conference is the perfect place for members of the electrical engineering community to further their knowledge of HVDC.
The main interest of this Full-Order Nonlinear Control is the possibility to obtain a very high dynamic performance of the MMC power flow.
