MMC Submodule Capacitor Health Monitoring Method

A solution to enhance the maintenance of the submodule

Description

SuperGrid Institute has developed a method (know-how) to estimate the value of the capacitor, and by the way its condition, that can be implemented real time or off-line, that doesn’t require any additional sensors.
