This book examines a number of topics, mainly in connection with advances in semiconductor devices and magnetic materials and developments in medium and large-scale renewable power plant technologies, grid integration techniques and new converter topologies, including advanced digital control systems for medium-voltage networks. The bookas individual chapters provide an extensive compilation of fundamental theories and in-depth information on current research and development trends, while also exploring new approaches to overcoming some critical limitations of conventional grid integration technologies. Its main objective is to present the design and implementation processes for medium-voltage converters, allowing the direct grid integration of renewable power plants without the need for step-up transformers.... area, AC filter, cooling ventilators, AC contactor, and circuit breaker for isolating the AC system and overvoltage protection, respectively. ... To integrate the scattered wind turbine generators and solar PV arrays into a medium-voltage grid before the voltage stepup for ... 7.13 ABB cast coil dry-type transformer. 234 7 Designanbsp;...
