  • Control methods for low voltage ride-through compliance in grid-connected NPC converter based wind power systems using predictive control 

    Alepuz Menéndez, Salvador; Busquets Monge, Sergio; Bordonau Farrerons, José; Cortés, Patricio; Kouro, Samir (2009-09)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    In presence of grid voltage dips, Low Voltage Ride-Through (LVRT) requirements demand the wind power plant to remain connected to the grid, helping the network to keep voltage and frequency stable. Neutral-Point-Clamped (NPC) ...
  • Control scheme for low voltage ride-through compliance in back-to-back NPC converter based wind power systems 

    Alepuz Menéndez, Salvador; Calle Prado, Alejandro; Busquets Monge, Sergio; Bordonau Farrerons, José; Kouro, Samir; Wu, Bin (IEEE Press. Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The increasing influence of wind power in the power system operation has caused the power system operators to include wind power plants in the control of the overall power system, both in steady-state and transient ...

    This paper presents a generalized multilevel direct power control (ML-DPC) scheme for grid-connected multilevel power converters. The proposed method extends the original DPC operating principle by considering only the ...
  • Predictive control for low-voltage ride-through enhancement of three-level-boost and NPC-converter-based PMSG wind turbine 

    Yaramasu, Venkata; Wu, Bin; Alepuz Menéndez, Salvador; Kouro, Samir (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-12-01)
    Article
