Research on grid-connected power converters at University of Nottingham

Abstract: This presentation will show the breadth of work that UoN has carried out over the last 10-15 years in the area of grid connected applications including connection of renewable energy sources, energy storage systems, High Voltage DC Transmission etc. A discussion of the facilities that the PEMC group has invested in over this time will be undertaken. Finally, a case study of the work undertaken, based on the UNIFLEX-PM project, will be considered

High Voltage Resonant Converters for Industrial and Research Applications

Abstract: This presentation will discuss uno work over the last 10-15 years into the use of high power resonant converters for applications including Industrial Microwave Processing, High Energy Physics Experiments, and pollution control systems such as Electrostatic Precipitation. The presentation will discuss the basic concept of resonant load power conversion before analysing several topologies which have been considered. Experimental results and videos of the use of these converters in the aforementioned applications will also be presented.
