Description

Organizer:

Professor, Zhe Chen, zch@energy.aau.dk

Lecturers:       

Professor Zhe Chen, Aalborg University
Post doc. Fellow Kaiqi MA, Aalborg University

ECTS: 2

Description:

The course will provide training and education in the field of power system protection, in particular, the protection of modern power systems with large scale penetration of power electronic interfaced renewable energy based power plants and other power electronic systems.  Power electronic applications have brought many challenges to modern power systems, one significant aspect is power system protection, mainly due to the short circuit power changes and various control modes of power electronic converters. The course will describe the impacts in technical details and present some recent research results.

The main topics are as follows:

  • Basics of power system fault analysis and protection
  • Fault characteristics of Power Electronic interfaced Renewable Power Plants (PERPP)
  • Impacts of PERPP on power system protection
  • Some Research activities on the protection of modern power systems
