In this paper, a novel technique to balance the voltage of the two split dc capacitors of a 3-Level Neutral-Point-Clamped inverter using triangular carrier PWM modulation is presented. This technique, suitable for reactive power compensation and for inverters operating with a relatively low switching frequency, consists in adding a square wave at six times(More)
This paper analyses the voltage harmonic content at the Point of Common Coupling (PCC) and at the Voltage Source Converter (VSC) output in a STATCOM application by using a calculation tool, also discussed in the paper. Subsequently, a parameter sensitivity analysis is carried out taking into account the variation of key parameters such as the line length,(More)
With the advent of cloud computing and the availability of data collected from increasingly powerful scientific instruments, workflows have become a prevailing mean to achieve significant scientific advances at an increased pace. Scheduling algorithms are crucial in enabling the efficient automation of these large-scale workflows and a considerable effort(More)
Energy storage systems have shown to be a key enabling technology in many actual and future applications. Batteries are present in many electronic devices we use everyday as mobile phones or laptops. The development of these energy storage systems are also the key factor for the future boost in electric vehicle market. Energy storage systems are also(More)
