Bandyopadhyay, S. (author)
The advent of rooftop photovoltaics (PV), energy storage systems like a battery (BESS) and high capacity electric vehicles (EVs) is changing the landscape of electrical distribution rapidly. Traditional electricity consumers like households, buildings (both commercial and residential) are augmented with these emerging technologies which are...

Purgat, P. (author)
Low voltage direct current (LVDC) became a viable option for electric energy distribution in the early years of the twenty-first century. The upturn in the use of LVDC is fuelled by advances in power electronics and the growing use of renewable energy sources (RES) and electric storage. This work focuses on the power electronic devices for the...

Historically speaking, alternating current (ac) has been the standard for commercial electrical energy distribution. This is mainly because, in ac systems, electrical energy was easily transformed to diffierent voltages levels, increasing the efficiency of transmitting power over long distances. However, technological advances in, for example,...

Wu, J. (author)
Occasionally sporadic defects in high voltage cable insulation may escape from detection by commissioning or maintenance tests. Usually these tiny defects will not initiate significant partial discharges or cause breakdown in the cable insulation system under normal AC operating condition and normal transient situations. However, nowadays more...

Shekhar, A. (author)
Energy transition will inevitably lead to greater electrification. For example, it is anticipated that electrical energy demand will rise by at least 2-3 times by 2050 with increasing share of electric vehicles and heat pumps. This will translate to significant increase in power demand on the existing medium voltage distribution grid, resulting...

Narayan, N.S. (author)
Almost a billion people globally lack access to electricity. For various reasons, grid extension is not an immediately viable solution for the un(der-) electrified communities. As most of these electricity-starved regions lie in tropical latitudes, the use of off-grid solar-based solutions like solar home systems (SHS) is a logical approach....

Vega Garita, V.E. (author)
Photovoltaic (PV) solar energy is variable and not completely predictable; therefore, different energy storage devices have been researched. Among the variety of options, electrochemical cells (commonly called batteries) are technically feasible because of their maturity and stability. However, PV-battery systems face multiple challenges such as...

Todorcevic, T. (author)
This thesis deals with the new approach for harvesting renewable energy from sea waves. The main research problem is finding a way to efficiently extract the energy of the sea waves with the S3 concept using power electronics converter. The required operational high voltage of the generator limits the choice of possible power electronic...

This thesis deals with the modelling and application of magnetic fields in roads. The backbone technology being inductive power transfer (IPT) for electric vehicles. The magnetics for energy transfer in vehicles, can be adapted for heating steel fibres in roads, referred to as self-healing and modelling this is a second aspect of this thesis....

Electric vehicles are only sustainable if the electricity used to charge them comes from renewable sources and not from fossil fuel based power plants. The goal of this PhD thesis is to develop a highly efficient, V2G-enabled smart charging system for electric vehicles at workplaces, that is powered by solar energy. The...

Mackay, L.J. (author)
The traditional ac power system is challenged by emerging distributed renewable energy sources and an increase in installed load capacity, e.g., electric vehicles. Most of these new resources use inherently dc as do more and more appliances. This poses the question, if they should still be connected on ac in the low voltage grid, which was...

Kontos, E. (author)
High Voltage DC (HVDC) grids provide an efficient solution for the transmission of bulk power over long distances between the energy production and consumption centers. Up to now, most of the implemented dc connections are point-to-point, creating dc links to strengthen the existing, predominantly ac, electricity grid. However, to optimize the...

As power capacities of single wind turbine, single wind park and total wind power installation are continuously increasing, the wind power begins to challenge the safety operation of the power system. This thesis focuses on the grid integration aspects such as the dynamic behaviours of wind power during disturbances, and dynamic behaviours of...
