This thesis involves the PWM and control unit design and simulation for three-phase PWM converter widely used for grid-interface of renewable energy systems, motor drives, etc. The study involves selecting the LCL filter parameters, switching frequency, the PWM method, the cost-effective feedback controlled algorithm, etc. for the converter. The design is verified by means of detailed computer simulations. The study considers the normal and unbalanced grid conditions, which may occur in the grid operating conditions. Several power ratings and operating conditions are considered to provide a thorough performance evaluation of the designed system.

Switch mode converter based damping of PWM converter with LCLtype filter for grid interface of renewable energy systems /
Usluer, Sebahattin Nadir; Hava, Ahmet Masum; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
This thesis involves design and simulation for switch mode converter based damping of three-phase LCL-filtered PWM converter widely used for grid-interface of renewable energy systems. The study involves the resonance damping of high power voltage source converters connected to the grid via LCL filters. The design is verified by means of detailed computer simulations. The study considers eliminating the resonant harmonics which results in overvoltage/current stresses and leads to the failure of the converte...
Design and Implementation of a Current-Source Converter for Use in Industry Applications of D-STATCOM
Bilgin, Hazim Faruk; Ermiş, Muammer (2010-08-01)
This paper deals with the design and implementation of the power stage of a forced-commutated current-source converter (CSC) for use in industry applications of distribution type static synchronous compensator (D-STATCOM). The power semiconductors are switched at 500 Hz according to the switching patterns generated by selective harmonic elimination method for the elimination of the most significant four low-order harmonics. The possibility of using various power semiconductors in CSC is examined both theore...
Design of a Power Plant Emulator for the Dynamic Frequency Stability Studies
Duymaz, Erencan; Pourkeivannour, Siamak; Ceylan, Doğa; ŞAHİN, İLKER; Keysan, Ozan (2018-10-25)
Increasing renewable energy integration to grid requires inertial support to improve frequency stability of the power system. Inertial support of renewable energy systems requires hardware verification in order to test practical limitations and absence of dynamical grid simulators makes verification studies more challenging. In this study, a test rig which is composed of a DC motor, an AC synchronous generator and an external flywheel, is developed in order to provide a platform in which dynamic properties ...

In this research work, the design and implementation of a 154-kV +/- 50-Mvar transmission static synchronous compensator (T-STATCOM) have been carried out primarily for the purposes of reactive power compensation and terminal voltage regulation and secondarily for power system stability. The implemented T-STATCOM consists of five 10.5-kV +/- 12-Mvar cascaded multilevel converter (CMC) modules operating in parallel. The power stage of each CMC is composed of five series-connected H-bridges (HBs) in each phas...
Design and optimization of high torque density generator for direct drive wind turbine applications
Zeinali, Reza; Ertan, Hulusi Bülent; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2016)
In this thesis, it is aimed to design a high torque density generator for a variable speed, direct drive wind turbine application. Such a generator may reduce the size of the turbine tower and the nacelle and may provide cost advantage. For this purpose, various topologies of the permanent magnet machines in the literature are reviewed. Among the reviewed electrical machines, a magnetically geared machine introduced as a concept with high torque density and high power factor is chosen to be evaluated for th...
