Description

Power electronics interface design and implementation for microgrid, smart grids and modern power systems, has received tremendous attention in recent years. Many countries including Australia are developing different power electronics technologies such as integrating renewable energy sources into the grid, managing charging and discharging of high power energy storage system, controlling the reactive power of power electronics interfaces for grid stability, and adding communication capability to power electronics interfaces for smart grid applications.

This subject enables students to research and develop their own solutions to complex design challenges. Upon completion of this subject, students will have in-depth understanding of various power converter operating principles, control and modulation strategies. In addition, students will be able to model, simulate and identify the most important design parameters for control and prototype design.
