    • 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 ...
    • Five-level T-type cascade converter for rooftop grid-connected photovoltaic systems 

      Verdugo Retamal, Cristian Andrés; Kouro, Samir; Rojas, Christian A.; Pérez, Marcelo A.; Meynard, Thierry A.; Malinowski, Mariusz (2019-05-08)
      Article
      Open Access
      Multilevel converters are widely considered to be the most suitable configurations for renewable energy sources. Their high-power quality, efficiency and performance make them interesting for PV applications. In low-power ...
    • Multilevel direct power control-A generalized approach for grid-tied multilevel converter applications 

      Rivera, Sebastian; Kouro, Samir; Wu, Bin; Alepuz Menéndez, Salvador; Malinowski, Mariusz; Cortés, Patricio; Rodriguez, José (2014-10-01)

      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
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      In this paper, a predictive control scheme is proposed for the low-voltage ride-through (LVRT) enhancement of direct-driven permanent-magnet-synchronous-generator-based megawatt-level wind turbines. The proposed method ...
    • Recent advances and industrial applications of multilevel converters 

      Leon, José I.; Kouro, Samir; Malinowski, Mariusz; Gopakumar, K.; Pou Félix, Josep; Franquelo, L. G.; Wu, Bin; Rodríguez, José; Pérez, Marcelo A. (IEEE Press. Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-08)
