With the increase in home energy consumption due to the electrification of house heating and charging of electric vehicles (EVs), the self-sufficiency and reduced impact on the utility grid from a house has become a more exciting topic. In combination with the price decrease for lithium-ion batteries the potential for storing PV generated energy...

A quick-scan algorithm has been developed in order to evaluate rooftop PV potential in the Netherlands. Both its panel fitting and yield prediction functions have been validated with existing systems monitored by Solar Monkey. The calculation times of different parts of the algorithm were measured and decreased while keeping the accuracy of the...

Cable terminations are essential for connecting a cable to a piece of equipment such as a circuit breaker, transformer, motor, etc. Proper terminations are of great importance in order to provide faultless cable systems. Improper terminations could result in overheating, partial discharges, eventual breakdown, flashover and breakdown in the...

Detection of partial discharge (PD) in any high voltage equipment is of great importance to improve the reliability of the device and the power system. Characteristics of PDs, such as: rate of occurrence, magnitude, location and the type; gives information of the assets that must be considered. Nowadays, there are many different methods for...

The first commercial High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) transmission link was installed in 1954 between the mainland of Sweden and the island of Gotland. Since then, there is continuous and remarkable development in the HVDC technology making it an efficient way of transmitting bulk power over large distances. Due to the transition towards low...

Power switches are used very often in applications such as industrial and automotive. The main function of these devices is to switch the energy delivered to the load so that power could be transferred in the most optimum way meeting a certain set of requirements. Due to recent and continuous developments in system-on-chip technologies, it will...

Stability and security of the grid are two vital aspects of energy supply. To keep the grid stable, it is necessary that the electricity plant can control and protect the mechanism. In the past, traditional plants could meet these requirements. Nowadays, the share of sustainable power sources in total electricity generation has become so...

Nowadays there is a movement towards the creation of HVDC grids. The massive integration of renewable energy sources, the operation of the current grid close to its limits and the need to facilitate the power trade are some of the reasons driving the research on HVDC grids. Towards HVDC grids, there are still some obstacles and technical...

It is expected that DC grids will evolve into large meshed networks, which will have multiple DC voltage levels. Two DC grids operating at different voltage levels could be interconnected using a DC-DC converter. The role of the DC-DC converter in meshed DC networks is similar to the role of a transformer in traditional AC systems. The DC-DC...

The calculation of power flow through electrical networks has been utilized commonly in transmission networks as the first calculation tool to assess their steady state conditions. However, the current introduction of renewable micro-sources (many of them single-phase connected) and the implementation of microgrids makes the calculation of power...

At the end of a power transmission line, the cable should be terminated carefully, otherwise it will create problems during the operation. A special equipment called termination is designed to tackle down the problems from cable ends. The main functional part of a termination is a piece of rubber with a cone shape. This rubber cone has a semi...

In a cordless kitchen system, the appliances do not make use of a power cord. The system consists of a power channel and a communication channel. There are various resonant topologies which can be implemented in the power channel[9]. The chosen topology should meet the functional as well as non-functional equirements of the system. Presently, a...

In the world of DC railway trains nowadays, asynchronous-traction machine with traction controllers, i.e. an inverter with variable output frequency, is implemented. This controller changes the incoming DC voltage into an AC voltage of a variable frequency and RMS amplitude. The disadvantages of switching inverters, compared to a pure sine wave...
