    This work presents the development and validation of a model for electric networks supplying nonlinear loads (NLL). The model is based on Neural Networks (NN) and its purpose is the prediction of harmonic currents sank by ...
  • Control to reduce leading current in a Shunt Hybrid power filter 

    Lamich Arocas, Manuel; Balcells Sendra, Josep; González Díez, David; Gago Barrio, Javier; Jaen Fernandez, Carles; Castillo Martínez, José Luis (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2009)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The main drawback of Shunt Hybrid Filters is the need of leading current injection. This paper describes a strategy to reduce the leading current in a three phase four wires LC coupled parallel hybrid filter for harmonics ...

  • Capacitor voltage balancing in a three-level-converter-based energy storage system 

    Burusteta, Sendoa; Pou Félix, Josep; Ceballos Recio, Salvador; Marino, Iker; Anzola, Jose Angel; Agelidis, Vassilios (2013-10-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper discusses a grid-connected energy storage system based on two three-level (3L) converters: a DC-DC one and a neutral-point-clamped inverter. When compared to a system using standard two-level converters, the ...
  • Enhanced phase-shifted PWM carrier disposition for interleaved voltage-source inverters 

    Capellá Frau, Gabriel José; Pou Félix, Josep; Ceballos Recio, Salvador; Konstantinou, Georgios; Zaragoza Bertomeu, Jordi; Agelidis, Vassilios (2014-03-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    This letter presents a novel implementation of pulse width modulation that improves the quality of the line-to-line output voltages in interleaved multiphase voltage-source inverters (VSIs). In multiphase VSIs with n ...
  • Performance evaluation of three-phase grid-connected photovoltaic inverters using electrolytic or polypropylene film capacitors
