DC Distributed Power Systems - Analysis, Design and Control for a Renewable Energy System

  title={DC Distributed Power Systems - Analysis, Design and Control for a Renewable Energy System},
  author={Per Karlsson},
Renewable energy systems are likely to become wide spread in the future due to environmental demands. As a consequence of the dispersed nature of renewable energy systems, this implies that there will be a distributed generation of electric power. Since most of the distributed electrical energy sources do not provide their electric power at line frequency and voltage, a DC bus is a useful common connection for several such sources. Due to the differences in output voltage among the sources…
