Description: DC distribution and transmission systems are a clear trend in electrical networks. The focus of this course is on modeling, control and operation of DC Microgrids, starting with stability and control strategies analyzed in detail, DC droop, virtual impedance concepts and hierarchical control structures for DC microgrids are also introduced. Control of DC-DC and AC-DC converters oriented as DC Microgrid interfaces are evaluated. Distributed energy storage systems, stored energy balance and nature DC output generation systems are presented showing their interaction in DC distribution Microgrids. The course also shows examples of DC microgrids in different applications like telecommunication systems or residential DC electrical distribution systems, stored energy balance for distributed energy storage system by using knowledge based fuzzy system and hybrid AC-DC microgrids.

Prerequisites: Matlab/Simulink knowledge is recommended for the exercises.
