Power Quality Monitoring of Grids with High Penetration of Power Converters (2017–2020)

Abstract:
The project aims to monitor and analyse power quality of grids within the frequency ranges of 0-2 kHz (existing regulations) and 2-150 kHz (new regulations). Power quality of grids deteriorate due to high penetrations of inverter based renewable energy systems. To estimate power quality of grids, a multi-domain simulation model based on grid configurations and operating conditions will be developed in this project. Developed methodologies will assist network service providers to better analyse harmonics and resonances within low and high voltage power systems and further support them to develop new planning guidelines and regulations to address power quality of grid connected solar inverters and wind turbines.
