The course is graded based on final paper exam, completed simulation tasks and laboratory work assignment.


The course gives basic knowledge on dynamic modeling of three-phase grid-connected converters in such a way that the student knows basic terminology, control principles, as well as can perform simple control design based on the small-signal model. The student understands the principle of power-hardware-in-the-loop simulations and can test stability of self-tuned controllers in the laboratory. The student understands the basic constraints related to control of grid-connected converters, such as control delay, dynamical anomalities (RHP-poles), unbalanced grid voltages and impedance-based interactions. The student becomes aware of different current control and grid synchronization methods. After taking the course the student has the ability to model three-phase converters and knows how the dynamic model can be utilized to yield stable converter in terms of small-signal stability. Moreover, the student will have the necessary tools to analyze and model more advanced three-phase converter topologies.
