Converter-Based Dynamics and Control of Modern Power Systems is designed to prepare future engineers for operating a system that will be driven by electronics and less by electro-mechanical systems. Converter-based dynamics and control of modern power systems addresses the ongoing changes and challenges in rotating masses of synchronous generators which are transforming dynamics of the electrical system. These changes make it more important to consider and understand the role of power electronic systems and their characteristics in shaping the subtleties of the grid and this book fills that knowledge gap. Balancing theory, discussion, diagrams, mathematics and data this reference provides the information needed to acquire a thorough overview of resilience issues and frequency definition and estimation in modern power systems. It offers an overview of classical power system dynamics and identifies ways of establishing future challenges and how they can be considered at a global level to overcome potential problems.

Key Features
