Modern Control of DC-Based Power Systems: A Problem-Based Approach addresses the future challenges of DC Grids in a problem-based context for practicing power engineers who are challenged with integrating DC grids in their existing architecture. This reference uses control theory to address the main concerns affecting these systems, things like generation capacity, limited maximum load demands and low installed inertia which are all set to increase as we move towards a full renewable model. Offering a new approach for a problem-based, practical approach, the book provides a coordinated view of the topic with MATLAB®, Simulink® files and additional ancillary material provided.
- Includes Simulink® Files (of examples and for lab training classes) and MATLAB® files
- Presents video slides to support the problem-based approach to understanding DC Power System control and application
- Provides stability analysis of DC networks and examples of common stability problems
