Description

Organizers:  

Assistant Professor, Saeed Peyghami, sap@energy.aau.dk
Professor, Frede Blaabjerg, fbl@energy.aau.dk

Lecturers:    

Saeed Peyghami, Aalborg University
Frede Blaabjerg, Aalborg University

ECTS: 2

Description:

Modern power electric based power systems (PEPS) are facing new challenges in terms of reliable planning and operation due to proliferation of power electronic converters. The course is aimed at providing an in-depth introduction to the reliability modeling, assessment and enhancement approaches in PEPS. The basic principles of reliability evaluation along with their application, current practices and solution methods in PEPS will be discussed.

Benefits of Participants:

  • Understanding the fundamental of PEPS reliability engineering
  • Exposure to probabilistic technique applications to PEPS problems
  • Bridging the reliability concepts of power electronics and power systems  

Intended Audience:

Power engineers, graduate students and researchers in utilities and universities

The course will mainly cover the following aspects:

  • Fundamental concepts of reliability Engineering
  • Structural reliability and stress strength analysis
  • Introduction to converter reliability prediction
  • Impacts of converter control on PEPS reliability
  • Reliability modeling in PEPS
  • Model-based design for reliability in PEPS
  • Model-based maintenance scheduling in PPES
  • Reliability enhancement in PEPS
  • Challenges and opportunities
