Trends in Dynamic Modeling of Converter Dominated Power Systems

December 1 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm

The trend in electric power systems is the displacement of traditional synchronous generation (e.g., coal, natural gas) with renewable energy resources (e.g., wind, solar photovoltaic) and battery energy storage. These energy resources require power electronic converters (PECs) to interconnect to the electric grid that have different dynamic responses compared to conventional synchronous generators. As a result, there is a need for validated models to study and mitigate PEC-based stability issues, especially for converter dominated power systems (e.g., island power systems, remote microgrids). This talk will provide a review of the existing PEC models focusing on data driven modeling approaches and how to leverage power hardware in-the-loop experiments to model PEC. The talk will conclude with open research questions in the area of modeling, simulation, and control of future converter dominated power systems.
