Three Phase Single Stage Photovoltaic System with Synchronverter Control: Power System Simulation Studies

Also Available Domains Distribution Systems|Wind Power Generation

Project Code :TEPGPS549


The main objective of this project is to conduct an exploratory study of the PV based synchronverter system when subjected to various disturbances.


In this project, the performance of three phase single-stage photovoltaic (PV) system with a synchronverter control in the North American medium voltage (MV) benchmark system. The modeling of PV array, controllers like synchronverter, dc-link voltage control, ac voltage control and their design is discussed in detail. The simulation studies for different cases are carried out by creating various disturbances like changes in solar radiation, temperature, load, faults, etc., in the benchmark system. Furthermore, under fault conditions, response with/without voltage droop mechanism in synchronverter is studied. All the offline simulations are carried out in PSCAD/EMTDC environment. Further, the real time test studies are validated on Controller Hardware-In-Loop (CHIL) platform in Real-Time-Digital-Simulator (RTDS). From this simulation study, it is concluded that Synchronverter Control can be a viable option when used as a grid forming technique. The simulation results of this method can be evaluated by using Matlab/Simulink Software.
