Renewable Energies for Power Systems

Integrating higher shares of renewable energy sources e.g., wind and solar PV, into the electrical network is crucial factor for decarbonizing the energy sector while continuing to meet growing demand for electricity. Thanks for the drastic reduction in costs and supportive policies, share of renewable energy sources expanded significantly in recent years. However, the inherent variability of these sources increases different challenges for operation of power grids.

In the Renewable Energies for Power Systems group, researches are carrying out on operation and control of power electronics in power systems, integration of renewable energy sources into the power grids (strong, weak, micro, hybrid,...), microgrid operation and control, and stability analysis of power grids under high penetration of renewable energies.

The group is led by Professor Edris Pouresmaeil.
