  8. Implementation of grid-connected to/from off-grid transference for micro-grid inverters

    Heredero Peris, Daniel; Chillón Antón, Cristian; Pages Gimenez, Marc; Gross, Gabriel Igor; Montesinos Miracle, Daniel
    This paper presents the transfer of a microgrid converter from/to on-grid to/from off-grid when the converter is working in two different modes. In the first transfer presented method, the converter operates as a Current Source Inverter (CSI) when on-grid and as a Voltage Source Inverter (VSI) when off-grid. In the second transfer method, the converter is operated as a VSI both, when operated on-grid and off-grid. The two methods are implemented successfully in a real platform but the later offers some advantage.

    Ruiz Alvarez, A.; Colet Subirachs, A.; Gomis Bellmunt, Oriol; Fernández Mola, José María; Alvarez Cuevas, F.; López Mestre, Joaquim; Sudrià Andreu, Antoni
    This paper presents an approach to microgrid automation. The microgrid is composed of three different nodes connected to the public electric grid, which are hardware emulated with back-to-back converters. The microgrid is a flexible and weather independent test bed for testing different control algorithms. The intelligence of the automation system is split in three hierarchical layers: the RMU layer, the iNode layer and the iSocket layer. Communications among iNode and iSockets are according IEC 61850 standard. The aims of the project is to comission a set of technologies and acquire experience in microgrid automation, IEC 61850 communications and power control algorithms in DER systems.

  12. Control of a utility connected microgrid

    Colet Subirachs, A.; Ruiz Alvarez, A.; Gomis Bellmunt, Oriol; Alvarez Cuevas, F.; Sudrià Andreu, Antoni
    This paper describes the control algorithm of a utility connected microgrid, based on independent control of active and reactive power (PQ control) and working in centralized operation mode. The microgrid under investigation is composed of three configurable units: a generation unit, a storage unit and a load. These units are interfaced with the microgrid through a Voltage Source Converter (VSC) and are controlled by the nodes of the communication system by means of IEC 61850. A set of tests have been conducted to evaluate the microgrid behavior.

  13. A sensorless stable V/f control method for a five-phase PMSM

    Sala Pérez, Pau; Galcerán Arellano, Samuel; Montesinos Miracle, Daniel
    This paper presents a sensorless and stable control method for a five-phase permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM). At first, a model of a five-phase PMSM is presented. After that a stability study has been performed by the analysis of the eigenvalues of the state transition matrix of the linearized PMSM model about an operating point. The results show that the machine speed response is unstable for input frequencies below the machine rated frequency. Finally, an open-loop V/f stabilization algorithm which ensures the stability of the system over a wide range of speed is presented.

The storage device has been designed as a proof of concept. It is based on a low-speed rotating disk mechanically coupled to a Permanent Magnet Synchronous Machine. The electrical power is exchanged with the external grid by means of a set of back-to-back power converters. These power electronics control the speed of the machine, and thus the active power absorbed or injected by the device, and also regulate the reactive power at the point of common coupling with the external grid. Vector...

    Cairó, Ignasi; Sumper, Andreas
    With the increase in electric mobility, public and private charge facilities will be required to provide solutions adjusted to the actual needs and requirements. A new methodology for dimensioning charge stations for electric vehicles (EVs) is presented in this paper. Such proposal is based on the Markov chains, and uses as output rates, the capabilities of the charge station in providing energy from the sun through photovoltaic generation, stored energy in local batteries and also as a back-up the power grid. A numerical result is also presented for a better understanding of the process.
