In this article the MVDC break-even distance (with respect to AC distribution) is calculated according to the overall energy efficiency criteria.
Methodology to obtain the specifications and perform the sizing of a power flow controller for meshed HVDC grids
This work proposes a methodology to obtain the specifications, select the most suitable converter structure and perform the sizing of an interline Power Flow Controller.
Energy storage systems can be distributed in a modular multilevel converter (MMC) for the enhancement of HVDC converter stations.
Experimental study of an EMI reduction gate-driver technique for turn-off transition of 1.7 kV SiC MOSFET
This paper proposes a novel self-controlled SiC MOSFET gate driver circuit. This new gate driver proposes a dynamic gate-bias modification.
We are excited to be back at this leading power electronics event for its latest edition and a week of exchanges.
Power Flow Controllers (PFCs) or Current Flow Controllers (CFCs) are expected to be required in future High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) grids.
This paper proposes a modular DC-DC converter as an interface between the energy storage element and the SM capacitor.
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.
