    Article
    Open Access
    The aim of this work is to age commercial battery cells far beyond their expected lifetime. There is a gap in the literature regarding run to failure tests of lithium-ion batteries that this work intends to address. ...
  • Voltage sag influence on controlled threephase grid-connected inverters according to the Spanish grid code 

    Bakkar, Mostafa; Bogarra Rodríguez, Santiago; Rolán Blanco, Alejandro; Córcoles López, Felipe; Saura Perisé, Jaime (2020-02-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    To ensure the safe operation of the grid, there are some requirements to be taken into consideration to connect power converters. During abnormal conditions – e.g. during voltage sags –, the control of the converters is a ...

    Article
    Open Access
    This paper reports on a laboratory experiment to study the effect of vehicle net charge on theinception of a positive leader from an aircraft exposed to high atmospheric electric fields. The experimentmodels the first stage ...
  • Robust decentralized approach to interaction mitigation in VSC-HVDC grids through impedance minimization 

    Agbemuko, Adedotun Jeremiah; Domínguez Garcia, José Luis; Gomis Bellmunt, Oriol (2020-01-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    An interconnection of independently designed voltage source converters (VSCs) and their control in high voltage DC grids can result in network-level detrimental interactions and even instability. In many cases, vendors are ...
  • Analysis of the lightning production of convective cells 

    Figueras i Ventura, Jordi; Pineda Rüegg, Nicolau; Besic, Nikola; Grazioli, Jacopo; Hering, Alessandro; Van der Velde, Oscar Arnoud; Romero Durán, David; Sunjerga, A.; Mostajabi, A.; Azadifar, M.; Rubinstein, M.; Montanya, Joan; Germann, Urs; Rachidi-Haeri, Farhad (2019-10-22)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper presents an analysis of the lightning production of convective cells. The cells were detected by the MeteoSwiss Thunderstorms Radar Tracking (TRT) algorithm in the course of a lightning measurement campaign that ...
  • A power calculation algorithm for single-phase droop-operated-inverters considering linear and nonlinear loads HIL-assessed 

    El Mariachet Carreño, Jorge; Matas Alcalá, José; Martín Cañadas, María Elena; Li, Mingshen; Guan, Yajuan; Guerrero, Josep M. (2019-11-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The active and reactive powers, P and Q, are crucial variables in the parallel operation of single-phase inverters using the droop method, introducing proportional droops in the inverter output frequency and voltage amplitude ...
  • Meteorological aspects of self-initiated upward lightning at the Säntis Tower (Switzerland) 

    Pineda, Nicolau; Figueras i Ventura, Jordi; Romero Durán, David; Mostajabi, A.; Azadifar, M.; Sunjerga, A.; Rachidi-Haeri, Farhad; Rubinstein, M.; Montanya, Joan; Van der Velde, Oscar Arnoud; Altube Vázquez, Patricia; Besic, Nikola; Grazioli, Jacopo; Germann, Urs; Williams, Earle R. (2019-12-26)
    Article
    Open Access
    Interest in exploring the meteorological conditions favoring upward lightning from tall man-made structures has grown in recent years, largely due to the worldwide expansion of wind energy. To this end, instrumented towers ...
