Solar Power Systems

Research activities

Design of new topologies and control techniques for PV power converters, ranging from small modular converters of some hundreds of watts to centralized converters of some hundreds of kilowatts
Analysis and design of controllers for PV power plants to improve their controllability according to the exigencies set by the transmission/distribution system operator
Hybridization of PV power facilities with other energy sources and electrical energy storage systems to improve their performance by reducing intermittency and firming their stochastic response to continuous supply.
Analysis of the performance of power systems consisting of advanced PV power plants involved in providing both electrical power and ancillary services
Studies of integration of PV power in existing networks
