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