  • Capability curve analysis of photovoltaic generation systems 

    Cabrera Tobar, Ana; Bullich Massagué, Eduard; Aragüés Peñalba, Mònica; Gomis Bellmunt, Oriol (2016-12-15)
    Article
    Open Access
    The present article assesses the study of the PV generator capability curves for use in large scale photovoltaic power plants (LS-PVPPs). For this purpose, the article focuses on three main aspects: (i) the modelling of ...
  • Dynamic modelling and control of a PV generator for large scale applications 

    Cabrera Tobar, Ana; Aragüés Peñalba, Mònica; Gomis Bellmunt, Oriol (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Conference report

    As large scale photovoltaic power plants are increasing their capacity, the new grid codes are requiring that these power plants have similar performance as conventional power plants do. Because of this, it is essential ...
  • Effect of variable solar irradiance on the reactive power response of photovoltaic Generators 

    Cabrera Tobar, Ana; Aragüés Peñalba, Mònica; Gomis Bellmunt, Oriol (2018)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    New grid requirements for large scale photovoltaic power plants (LS-PVPPs) demanding ancillary services make necessary the enhancement of photovoltaic (PV) generator's control. One of the challenges is the reactive power ...
  • Evaluation of a state observer for frequency estimation in a grid tied photovoltaic inverter 

    Cabrera Tobar, Ana; Gomis Bellmunt, Oriol; Carrasco, Juan A.; Barnes, Mike (2018)
    Conference report

    Ahstract-A phase locked loop (PLL) is commonly used to measure the electrical frequency deviations in PV grid tied inverters. However, this control is affected by sudden changes of power that usually happens with this type ...
  • Performance analysis of conventional PSS and fuzzy controller for damping power system oscillations 

    Banna, Hasan UI; Luna Alloza, Álvaro; Rodríguez Cortés, Pedro; Cabrera Tobar, Ana; Ghorbani, Hamidreza; Ying, Shaoqing (2014)
    Conference report

    Electro-mechanical oscillations are produced, in the machines of an interconnected power network, followed by a disturbance or due to high power transfer through weak tie lines. These oscillations should be damped as quickly ...
  • Performance of a small photovoltaic power plant under different meteorological conditions 

    Cabrera Tobar, Ana; Gomis Bellmunt, Oriol (2016)
    Conference report
