    • A three-phase active rectifier topology for bipolar DC Ddstribution 

      Junyent Ferré, Adrià; Rodríguez Bernuz, Joan Marc (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018-02)
      Article
      Open Access
      A new three-phase active rectifier topology is proposed for bipolar dc distribution, which can achieve the independent dc-pole control, with only one two-level voltage source converter and an ac-side grounding inductor. ...
    • Advanced management systems for battery applications 

      Rodríguez Bernuz, Joan Marc (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya / Universitat de Barcelona, 2015)
      Master thesis
      Restricted access - author's decision
      This project is focused on those systems aimed to improve batteries performance, more widely known as Battery Management Systems. Specifically, amongst the different areas covered by Battery Management Systems, high ...
    • Design of a linear time-varying model predictive control energy regulator for grid-tied VSCs 

      Rodríguez Bernuz, Joan Marc; Junyent Ferré, Adrià (2021-06)
      Article
      Open Access
      This article presents an energy regulator based on a Model Predictive Control (MPC) algorithm for a Voltage Source Converter (VSC). The MPC is formulated to optimise the converter performance according to the weights defined ...
    • E-bike load demand estimation for transport using cartographic data 

      Ngendahayo, Aimable; Junyent Ferré, Adrià; Rodríguez Bernuz, Joan Marc; Ntagwirumugara, Etiene (2024-06-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      In remote areas of Sub-Saharan Africa, as well as in Rwanda, communities face the problem of finding an affordable and suitable way of transport for their daily life. Currently, the short-range transportation of people and ...
    • Experimental validation of a single phase Intelligent Power Router 

      Rodríguez Bernuz, Joan Marc; Prieto Araujo, Eduardo; Girbau Llistuella, Francesc; Sumper, Andreas; Villafafila Robles, Roberto; Vidal Clos, Josep-Andreu (2015-12)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Current power networks are facing numerous challenges in transmission and distribution in order to accommodate distributed generation from renewables. As a result, the current grid needs to evolve towards a system with ...
    • Improved methods for controlling interconnected DC microgrids in rural villages 

      Hategekimana, Pascal; Junyent Ferré, Adrià; Ntagwirumugara, Etiene; Rodríguez Bernuz, Joan Marc (2024-01-29)
      Article
      Open Access
      Interconnected Microgrid (IMG) networks have been suggested as the best to build electrical networks in remote villages far from the main electricity grid by interconnecting the nearby distributed energy resources (DERs) ...
    • Operating region extension of a modular multilevel converter using model predictive control: a single phase analysis 

      Rodríguez Bernuz, Joan Marc; Junyent Ferré, Adrià (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020-02)
      Article
      Open Access
      The modular multilevel converter is the state-of-the-art topology for voltage source converter HVDC. Despite its advantages, this converter handles large internal low-frequency energy ripples, and the capacitance that ...
    • Real-time optimization-based reference calculation integrated control for MMCs considering converter limitations 

      Westerman Spier, Daniel; Rodríguez Bernuz, Joan Marc; Prieto Araujo, Eduardo; López Mestre, Joaquim; Junyent Ferré, Adrià; Gomis Bellmunt, Oriol (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2021-10-12)
      Article
      Open Access
      The paper addresses a real-time optimization-based reference calculation integrated with a control structure for Modular Multilevel Converters (MMC) operating under normal and constrained situations (where it has reached ...
