As more and more solar panels are installed on households, a problem arises when the power from the solar panels fluctuating throughout the day due to clouds passing over the solar panels. This in turn causes voltage flickers in the household, which can be visible/irritable to the human eye and damage appliances in the household. These voltage...

An isolated bidirectional DC-DC converter is designed for a dual-output EV charger. Various DC-DC converter topologies are compared, including single-output converters and dual-output converters. Then one suitable topology is selected between the multiport CLLC converter and triple active bridge converter based on the simulation performances for...

As renewable energy sources and DC energy storage continue to increase in modern power systems, the power electronic converters required to interface them with existing power grids are also rapidly increasing. This is resulting in increasing amounts of the total power exchanged on the grids being converted between DC and AC. Additionally, the...

This thesis presents a practical topology for achieving highly efficient dual-side wireless power transfer (WPT). Traditional WPT systems with a diode rectifier on the secondary side lack flexibility in load matching, requiring the integration of an additional dc/dc converter at the back end. However, this approach leads to increased power...

This thesis investigated the AC insulation performance of a Fluoronitrile gas mixture with a varying amount of humidity in the gas. Also the AC insulation performance of a humid Fluoronitrile gas mixture at different operating pressures is investigated. Furthermore, the partial discharge (PD) behaviour of corona in a Fluoronitrile gas mixture is...

High-voltage circuit breakers protect and control the electrical power grid, making their reliability of the essence. Robustly assessing the technical `health' of every circuit breaker in operation is key for an optimal maintenance strategy and safety measures, but is traditionally not performed in a data-driven, statistical fashion. The goal is...

Climate agreement goals set by the Dutch government increase the urge to reduce our greenhouse gases. To fulfil these goals on a residential level a reduction of the emission of carbon which is produced during household demand and transportation (commute) is required. On a residential level, the amount of photovoltaic systems (PV) and electric...
