—As more renewable energy sources (RES) get connected to the electric power network, the stability of the system is gradually put into increasing risk. RES lack stabilizing characteristics, such as inertia, which are inherent to conventional synchronous machines. Mimicking inertia techniques, by appropriately controlling an external power source such as a(More)
Micro-generations and future grid usages, such as charging of electric cars, raises major challenges to monitor the electric load in low-voltage cables. Due to the highly interconnected nature, real-time measurements are problematic, both economically and technically. This entails an overload risk in electricity networks when cables must be disconnected for(More)
2013 To my family Preface This thesis summarizes a significant part of my research activities at the Power Systems Laboratory (PSL) of ETH Zurich. Spending about five years at PSL, there are a lot of people I wish to thank. First of all, I would like to express my deepest gratitude to my advisor Professor Göran Andersson for giving me the opportunity to(More)
