Welcome to Periodic Control and Filtering in Power Electronic Converter Systems (2021)

Description: A key issue for power electronic converters is the ability to tackle periodic signals in electrical power processing (e.g. sinusoidal voltage/current regulation, power harmonics mitigation, synchronous frame transformation, grid synchronization, etc.) in such a way to precisely and flexibly convert and regulate electrical power. Classical controllers (e.g., PID control) are not able to remove the dynamic periodic error completely. The residual periodic errors will not only degrade the power quality and even the stability and reliability of the electrical power systems.   

This Ph.D. course is thus to lay a foundation of the Internal Model Principle (IMP) -based periodic control and filtering theory with basic theory, derivation of applied equations, know-how on the control synthesis, and some most recent progress, which is found to provide power electronic converters with a superior control solution to the compensation of periodic signals with high accuracy, fast dynamic response, good robustness, and cost-effective implementation. This course also contributes to this discipline combined with demonstrative practical examples of the application of periodic control and filtering to: standalone/grid-connected power converters; high frequency link converters; shunt active power filters; and PLLs for grid synchronizations, which can be fruitful in future controller designs, and the control methods are in some cases already applied in industry.   

As an emerging topic, the periodic control has the great potential to be one of the best control solutions for power converters but not limited to, and to be a very popular standard industrial controller like the PID control.

Important information concerning PhD courses: We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 3.000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately four months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
