Research Areas

Statistical modeling of renewable generation

  • Power electronic based WTs have probabilistic harmonic characteristics which mean the harmonics are continuously varying.
  • Conventional average-value based harmonic magnitude and fixed phase angle cannot fully reflect the probabilistic characteristics.
  • Conventional harmonic analysis may overestimate the harmonic impact in the planning studies that may result in the additional cost.
  • To reflect the realistic harmonic characteristics, probabilistic characteristics are fully considered.
  • Time and frequency domain analysis make it possible to model the probabilistic-based harmonic component.
  • This modeling methodology is used to analyze the more realistic harmonic impact on the grid in the planning studies.

- Frequency domain: Individual harmonic magnitudes are randomly generated based on their own probability density function.
- Time domain: A randomly generated virtual FFT page turns into a waveform that has probabilistic characteristics by using inverse FFT.

Battery energy storage system (BESS) operation

  • In order to dispatch the wind energy, the variability should be compensated.
  • Without considering SOC(state of charge), battery reaches the full charge/discharge state.
  • 0 or 100% SOC causes operation suspension of battery.
  • Reference compensation method enables the wind energy dispatch without operation suspension.


Impedance-based stability anlaysis

  • The increase of the power electronic device integration results in control interaction that threatens the system stability.
  • The control interaction should be analyzed by fully considering control dynamics.
  • The converter impedances are obtained by considering the control dynamics.
  • The system stability can be investigated by using the impedance-based analysis.


Converter parameter tuning with particle swarm optimization

  • Converter impedance can be adjusted by the control parameters.
  • It is possible to secure the system stability with the control parameter optimization.
  • Particle swarm optimization is adopted from the behavior of fish schooling and bird flocking.
  • After the particle swarm optimization, the multiple converter system can be stable despite the converter disconnection.
