    We introduce new methods for the analysis of complex three-dimensional lightning data produced by Lightning Mapping Arrays and illustrate them by cases of a mid-latitude severe weather producing thunderstorm and a tropical ...
  • Evolution of gigantic jets at high temporal and spatial resolution 

    Van der Velde, Oscar Arnoud; Montanya, Joan; López Trujillo, Jesús Alberto (2018)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Gigantic Jets (GJ) are lightning discharges between the cloud and the lower ionosphere, which manifest as leaders at low altitude and transition to streamers as they rise in altitude. The evolution has never been imaged ...

  • Stability analysis of a grid-connected VSC controlled by SPC 

    Marin, Leonardo; Tarrasó, Andres; Candela García, José Ignacio; Rodríguez Cortés, Pedro (2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In the near future a large part of traditional generation based on conventional synchronous machines (SM) will be replaced by renewable generation based on voltage source converters (VSC). In this sense, power system ...
  • Multilevel single phase isolated inverter with reduced number of switches 

    Verdugo Retamal, Cristian Andrés; Candela García, José Ignacio; Atef Abbas Elsaharty, Mohamed; Rodríguez Cortés, Pedro (2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper proposes a cascaded single phase multilevel inverter using an off-the-shelf three-phase inverter and transformer. The concept is based on a cascaded connection of two inverter legs using a typical three phase ...
