First day of the EXPO is soon finished. We are happy with the interest from all the visitors.

Grid Synchronization

The upper graph shows the generated three-phase sine waves from the DC-AC converter. As seen, it is synchronized with the three-phase sine of the power grid in the graph below it.

More Simulations

We are doing a lot of simulation. The graph shows the Perturb & Observe vs. Incremental Conduction MPPT Algorithm & Observe versus Incremental Conduction MPPT algorithm.

 

 

 

 

Simulations

We have been constructing circuits in MATLAB Simulink and testing different Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) methods. Pictures below show the circuit of a PV-array with different MPPT control strategy and the readout from the simulation.

Photovoltaic lab

The picture is from the PV setup in the renewable energy laboratory. This exercise shows how a photovoltaic system can be used to maintain the voltage in the grid during variable loads.

Wind turbine lab

We have performed some exercises in the renewable energy laboratory to get familiar how different energy systems perform in the power grid. This picture shows the DFIG setup. It is a doubly-fed induction generator. This is one of the most used generators in todays wind turbines.

Progress

After a lot of back and forth it looks like we finally decided what we will focus on in the bachelor thesis. Stay tuned!


 

 

Blog up and running

First blog post. The bachelor project is in it’s starting phase and the website is taking form.
