Power Quality of Future Electricity Networks

Grant


Collaborating Organisation


Scheme


  • Global Innovation Linkages

Abstract


  • Penetration levels of new energy sources including solar and wind are on the rise in electricity grids across the world. These sources are connected to the grid through power electronics-based interfaces leading to new challenges requiring greater attention where a significant challenge is the generation of unwanted harmonics which pollutes the grid, and have become a concern to all stakeholders as the their levels have to be managed below stipulated limits to ensure power system security. In this regard, measurement and assessment of harmonics and their impact on connected equipment are crucial where there are deficiencies in the existing technologies and knowledge, thus necessitating new work which forms the basis of this project.
