Description: Grid-connected converters have commonly been used with renewable power generations, flexible ac/dc power transmission systems, regenerative drives, etc. As the increasing use of converters in electrical grids, the dynamic modeling and control of converters become critical for building a stable power-electronic-based power system. This course thus devotes to provide a design-oriented analysis on the control dynamics of grid-connected converters, covering the fundamental and state-of-the-art of modeling, stability analysis and control topics, including: 

  • Vector current control 
  • Complex-valued frequency-domain modeling 
  • Impedance-based stability analysis  
  • Grid synchronization control and its stability impact  
  • DC-link and ac-bus voltage control  
  • Robust damping control techniques

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.
