Main project: Stability study of a grid using only renewable energies leading to an exclusive use of power electronics in the system
Funding: UCL Assistant
Supervisor(s): Emmanuel De Jaeger

In this thesis, a dynamic study is carried out on a PEDS (Power Electronics Dominated System) due to the penetration of renewable energies. Indeed, due to the strong penetration of renewable sources, this leads to a lower inertia of the system. Stability is therefore threatened.
The studied electrical system is based on 100% renewable sources.
Initially, the modeling of electronic power converters will be done. Then, a stability study can be made on the basis of the modeling (for example stability criterion). Finally, the system will be simulated to illustrate the mathematical results found.
