Speech Title: Key Control Techniques for Grid-Connected VSCs within Renewable Energy Generation Systems

Abstract:  With the increasing demand for more effective and environmentally friendly electrical power system, the development of distributed generation and microgrid is promoted in a rapid pace. The grid-connected voltage source converter (VSC), with flexible topologies, becomes the most employed interface to realize renewable energy generation and power quality improvement. The performance of VSC relies heavily on the main circuit topologies, control techniques, electro-magnetic interference (EMI), etc. In this speech, the most recent research work regarding control strategies for grid-connected VSCs will be introduced. It includes design of internal model based current control strategy and finite control set model predictive control for grid-connected VSCs, aiming at improving the performance of VSCs as well as the high power quality of the injected power.
