    This paper proposes an effective dc voltage and power-sharing control structure for multiterminal dc (MTDC) grids based on an optimal power flow (OPF) procedure and voltage-droop control implemented in the different ...
  • Adaptive droop for control of multiterminal DC bus integrating energy storage 

    Gavriluta, Catalin; Candela García, José Ignacio; Rocabert Delgado, Joan; Luna Alloza, Álvaro; Rodríguez Cortés, Pedro (2015-02-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Multiterminal dc (MTDC) systems are drawing a lot of interest lately in applications related to distributed generation, especially in those that integrate wind or photovoltaic (PV) generation with energy storage (ES). ...
  • Hierarchical control of HV-MTDC systems with droop-based primary and OPF-based secondary 

    Gavriluta, Catalin; Candela García, José Ignacio; Luna Alloza, Álvaro; Gomez Exposito, Antonio; Rodríguez Cortés, Pedro (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-11-12)
    Article

    The harmful effects of harmonics are an important issue in wind power plants (WPPs), especially in offshore applications. In offshore WPPs, the wind turbines are linked to the network through high-power converters that ...
  • Registration of X-rays at 2500 m altitude in association with lightning flashes and thunderstorms 

    Montañá Puig, Juan; Fabró Tàpia, Ferran; Van der Velde, Oscar Arnoud; Romero Durán, David; Solà de Las Fuentes, Gloria; Hermoso Costa, Juan Ramón; Soula, Serge; Williams, Earle; Pineda Ruegg, Nicolau (2014)
    Article
    Open Access
    Electric fields and high-energy radiation of natural lightning measured at close range from a mountaintop tower are discussed. In none of the 12 negative cloud-to-ground upward flashes were X-rays observed. Also no energetic ...
