  • Multiple‐terminal High‐voltage Hybrid Converters

    Renewable energy sources, combined with energy storage systems and/or utility grids, can deliver continuous power to the loads. Thus, it is predicted that a hybrid converter is able to interconnect various energy sources and loads with fewer converter stages and higher energy efficiency. This chapter focuses on the configuration of the multiple‐terminal hybrid converter with single DC output. In order to construct a hybrid converter with both AC and DC inputs, the chapter explains the single‐phase six‐arm dual‐input single‐output AC‐DC converter. The feasibility of the proposed six‐arm hybrid converter will be proven by the simulation results. If the AC input voltage source of the hybrid converter is three‐phase, based on the nine arms AC‐DC converter, the nine‐arm hybrid converter with three‐phase AC input can be obtained by connecting one group of end points to three DC voltage source. The chapter illustrates the multiple‐arm hybrid converter with single‐phase and three‐phase AC input.

  • Integrated Planning and Operational Control Of Resilient MEG For Optimal DERs Sizing and Enhanced Dynamic Performance

    In this chapter, an integrated planning and operational control of a microenergy grid (MEG) has been presented to optimally size DERs and to enhance MEG dynamic performance. The design, development, and hardware setup of the proposed MEG have been presented from the planning stage to the operational stage. The planning stage optimizes the size and type of distributed energy resources (DERs) for minimum cost and minimum CO2 emissions. Then, the operational stage evaluates and fine‐tunes the dynamic response. Renewable energy sources and natural‐gas‐based combined heat and power (CHP) are implemented, studied, and integrated into the MEG. A D‐FACTS device, green plug‐energy economizer (GP‐EE) with two DC/AC schemes are proposed and integrated into the MEG. Enhanced heuristic optimization methods can be applied to control the parameter settings of GP‐EE to fine‐tune the system dynamic response. The proposed controller adapts the global control error to increase the energy efficiency and reliability. Power factor improvement, voltage profile enhancement, loss reduction, and power quality improvement have been realized and achieved. The design and development of the MEG with hardware demonstration have been developed at the Energy Safety and Control Laboratory (ESCL), University of Ontario Institute of Technology. The MEG system included implementation of control strategies for DERs and programmable loads at a laboratory scale. A software system was developed to monitor all MEG parameters and to control the various components. Demonstration with digital simulations has been validated with the results showing the effectiveness and the improved performance.

  • Implementing the Internet of Things for Renewable Energy

    The electric power industry is currently undergoing fundamental changes not only driven by the introduction of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) into the grid, transforming it into a Smart Grid (SG), but also due to the incorporation of renewable electricity sources into customer supply, in conjunction with the rapidly decreasing costs of new technologies for electricity generation, storage, and consumption. These evolutions are happening in parallel with the deployment of the Energy Internet of Things (EIoT), whose aim is to tie all of these elements together and to provide maximum visibility, monitoring, control, and business proactivity. This chapter describes a number of key developments that are required to pollinate the full deployment of a dynamicSG, managed underEIoTmechanisms. These developments include the following four critical facets: (i) the reliable deployment of effective distributed energy resources (DERs); (ii) the deployment of the sensing, transmission, and analysis elements that comprise theEIoT; (iii) the establishment and deployment ofEIoTstandards to facilitate interworking and multivendor product availability; and (iv) the development and deployment of the essential mechanisms for security that will need to ensure safe and reliable grid operations.

  • Microgrids and Smart Grids

    Microgrids (MGs) incorporating distributed energy resources (DERs) at medium and low voltages are gaining importance due to the limitation of fossil fuels, environmental effects of fossil fuels and high capital requirements of central power plants. MG can optimize power quality and reliability, sustainability and economic benefits, and it may continuously operate in grid‐connected or island mode as well as in dual mode by changing the grid connection status. DER systems within the MG, in grid‐connected mode, will synchronize the frequency and voltage magnitude at their own terminals to the utility grid voltage and optimize the energy supply as required by a central monitor and control (CMC) unit. Hybrid energy storage system control becomes more complicated, and the integration of power electronics interface control in the overall operation of the MG is essential. Many utilities are more interested in implementing the smart grid (SG) in order to cope with changes and challenges.

  • Introduction

    The global demand for clean energy and electricity is rising fast. Thermal power plants burning fossil fuels are still the main source of power generation worldwide. Modern civilization cannot rely solely on fossil‐fuel‐based power generation in the future, even though today it is the dominant technology for electric power generation. Transmission and distribution losses and the low energy efficiency of end‐user applications are other elements contributing to the reduced exploitation of generated electricity. Power electronics and new converter technologies may support some of the sustainability goals by enabling the cost‐efficient and reliable integration of renewable energy sources (RES) into the power system. The use of voltage‐source‐converter (VSC) technology makes it possible to maintain the voltage and power quality on the connecting ac networks. The integration of RES into the power system will strongly rely on the availability of transmission and distribution networks.

  • Fundamental Green Networking Technologies

    This chapter gives an overview of the fundamental green networking technologies. Mobile traffic offloading, which is referred to as utilizing complementary network communications techniques to deliver mobile traffic, is a promising technique to alleviate congestion and reduce the energy consumption of mobile networks. Based on the network access mode, mobile traffic offloading schemes can be divided into two categories. The first category is infrastructure based mobile traffic offloading, which refers to deploying small cell base stations (BSs) to offload mobile traffic from macro BSs (MBSs). The second category is ad‐hoc based mobile traffic offloading, which refers to applying device‐to‐device (D2D) communications as an underlay to offload mobile traffic from MBSs. To understand the performance of mobile networks, many measurement studies have been presented. These studies unveil the obstacles that delay content delivery in mobile networks, and shed light on the research directions for enhancing the performance of mobile networks.

  • How: Research and Technology

    This chapter looks at the efficiency of solar cells, both theoretical and actual, and the technical details of the standards against which they are tested. Air mass (AM), nominal operating cell temperature (NOCT), standard test conditions (STC) and 1 sun apply to the testing and qualification of solar cells, modules, and systems. To be accredited against the international standards discussed in the chapter, solar modules are rated in terms of watts peak under standard test conditions. They are then tested to ensure they are adequately strong, safe, and weatherproof, with a series of tests. The chapter lists tests that are typically performed and the results are used to validate ratings given by the manufacturer. For thin film modules, some additional tests are carried out: light soak; thermal annealing; and wet leakage current.

  • Background of the Smart Grid

    This chapter introduces the background of the smart grid, including its motivations, communication architecture, applications, and requirements. In order to achieve the objectives of the smart grid, several important applications must be added to or upgraded in the current power grid. The most important applications and requirements include demand response, advanced metering infrastructure, wide‐area situational awareness and wide‐area monitoring systems, and communication networks and cybersecurity. The chapter explores some of the major topics in smart grid communication infrastructures and provides solutions and suggestions. It proposes a complete information and communication technologies (ICT) framework for the smart grid. The chapter introduces big data analytics and cloud computing into the smart grid communications to enhance grid operations and control. It also proposes security schemes for communications in the advanced metering infrastructure, and ID‐based security schemes for transmission over the Internet in the smart grid.
