  • Submodule power losses balancing algorithms for the modular multilevel converter 

    Picas Prat, Ricard; Pou, Josep; Zaragoza Bertomeu, Jordi; Watson, Alan; Konstantinou, Georgios; Ceballos Recio, Salvador; Clare, John (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2016)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Tolerance and component aging can cause significant differences in the capacitance values of the submodules (SMs) in a modular multilevel converter (MMC). Depending on the modulation technique, capacitance mismatches may ...

  • Mathematical efficiency modeling of static power converters 

    Hoff Dupont, Fabrício; Zaragoza Bertomeu, Jordi; Rech, Cassiano; Pinheiro, José Renes (2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper presents a review and a comparative analysis between mathematical models for the efficiency of power converters. Two different types of models are considered, being one for converters subject solely for output ...
  • Reducing circulating currents in interleaved converter legs under selective harmonic elimination pulse-width modulation 

    Konstantinou, Georgios; Pou Félix, Josep; Capellá Frau, Gabriel José; Ceballos Recio, Salvador; Agelidis, Vassilios (2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Interleaving of voltage source converter legs enables higher output currents per phase, effectively increasing the power rating without increasing semiconductor ratings. Different switching patterns between the converter ...
  • Modelling harmonics drawn by nonlinear loads
