Technologies for Hardware In the Loop Simulation of Complex Power Converter

10. NOV 2020

Lecture Power Electronics Forum > Power Supplies

11:20-11:40 h | Virtual

Power electronic converters with complex topologies are typically found in high-power applications such as renewable energy generation, medium voltage motor drive and DC flexible power transmission. Neutral point clamped converter (NPC), modular multi-level converter (MMC), cascaded H-bridge converter (CHB) are typical examples. Besides that, parallel or series connections of such base topologies are also commonly used. The large amount of switching devices in modular converters increases the complexity of the control system significantly. In order to validate the controller performance without the risk of breaking or needing a prototype, hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulations can be used. This presentation introduces specific technologies for the modeling of complex power converters in HIL simulations, regarding accuracy and computational effort.
