Technical Webinar: Paralleling Converters for DC Microgrids

July 24 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Event Navigation

One proposed approach to provide energy resiliency after high-impact, low-frequency events such as weather or security-related outages to the utility grid is to use multiple electric vehicles as energy sources for a DC microgrid. Examples include mobile field hospitals, emergency shelters, small campuses, or even clusters of residential homes. However, control of multiple DC sources in parallel using conventional methods provides inadequate performance. Researchers at FREEDM developed control techniques that result in accurate current sharing among the converters for a wide range of operating conditions. This talk by Shrivatsal Sharma, PhD, focuses on details of the control methodologies along with experimental validation for generic configurations of DC microgrids.
