Digital controller plays a key role in the modern grid connected inverters as it defines functionality, performance, interoperability, and stability of not only the inverter but the overall system.
This course covers the design, validation, and systematic testing of the digital controller including key subsystems:
In this tutorial we put emphasis on the current controller design and validation of key performance metrics.
You can look forward to learning:
In addition, we will demonstrate
The tutorial participation is free.
The training will be hosted by Fernanda Carnielutti, Power Electronics Professor at the Federal University of Santa Maria (UFSM).
Prof. Fernanda Carnielutti received her BA (2010), MA (2012) and PhD (2015) degrees in Electrical Engineering, from the Federal University of Santa Maria (UFSM) Brazil.
