About Event:

In the current global scenario, the demand for Renewable Energy Systems (RES) has increased due to environmental issues and limited fossil resources. Along with this demand, Photovoltaic (PV) and Wind Energy (WE) systems have become the most common type of the grid connected RES. These systems require power electronic conversion stages. As renewable power is intermittent in nature, these converters have to perform efficiently for any situation. However to connect these systems to the grid, output voltage and frequency adjustment are the challenging issues. With the availability of various topologies for power converters (both DC- AC and DC-DC), there should be a valid tradeoff between the selection of converters. Various types of converters have been utilized in the past to provide grid integration with RES. In PV systems, DC-DC converters are required to stabilize the variable voltage and frequency for the grid connection. As well, an AC-DC-AC converter is necessary for the WE systems as wind energy is variable during the system operation. This workshop helps in design, analysis and selection of power converters for renewable integration application.
