Power system blackouts have been observed increasingly frequent and severe. As an emergency control action to rescue the system from complete blackout, under-frequency load shedding (UFLS) technique can disconnect a part of the load when a disturbance occurs and an excessively low frequency is detected. Traditional UFLS scheme is widely adopted...

In recent years, a transition towards a more sustainable future has started and it is imperative that this trend continues. An increasing energy demand from the continuously growing population, together with the increment of greenhouse gasses (GHG) emissions and the depletion of fossil fuels have motivated the penetration of renewable energy...

Multijunction solar cells promise higher power-conversion efficiency than the single-junction. With respect to two-terminal devices, an accurate measurement of the spectral response requires a delicate adjustment of the light- and voltage-biasing; otherwise it can result in artifacts in the data and thus misinterpretation of the cell properties....

Voltage drop and rise at network peak and off-peak periods are one of the major power quality problems in low voltage distribution networks. Additionally, the ever increasing demand for electricity along with the other requirements are driving modern day power systems towards more distributed generation (DG). Integration of large scale DG can be...

Due to changes in the electricity grid, and the awareness of the energy consumption, management of energy flows is an important business. For the management of energy flows, detailed information about the current flow is needed. For the integration of current sensors in the grid there is a need for non-invasive current sensors that are easy to...

With the upcoming trend in electric aviation a good model that describes how the solar spectrum depends on altitude and solar zenith angle can ease the design process significantly. Knowing what solar spectrum to expect makes it possible to design the solar system of an aircraft more efficiently as the optimal incoming energy is included in the...

Save, N.P. (author)
The introduction of renewable energy sources such as wind, CHPs, photovoltaic in the electrical power networks has coined the term of distributed generation (DG) penetration into the electrical power grids. Often this DG penetration is concentrated in the distribution grids leading to complex electrical behaviour, in terms of power flow and...

Standing time, prior to testing, is a necessary part of the oil-filled transformer manufacturing process and its duration is design dependent. Caution on part of the manufacturer to avoid failure of expensive transformers leads to the overestimation of standing time, consequently impacting annual production. Thus, a need for optimizing (reducing...

The thesis proposes a controller that enables microgrids to have a modular structure, to be flexible in terms of linked energy consumers and resources, and to offer the possibility of prioritized demand side management, while avoiding the need of employing a dedicated communication network. For this, the control strategy applies droop control,...
