Optimal design of the modular multilevel converter for an energy storage system based on split batteries

This paper presents the optimal design of a modular multilevel converter (MMC) for use in a standalone high power energy storage system based on split batteries (sBESS). The MMC allows for the sBESS to connect directly to the medium-voltage grid without the need for a line-transformer. A free parameter variation is performed to compare designs with… CONTINUE READING
