PhD research project: Operating Inverter Interfaced Microgrids

Stability and operation of inverter-based microgrids depends on various factors. Component mismatches and parameters drifts drastically affect the stability of such systems. Therefore, the aims of this research project are to comprehend the effects of design differences and parameter drifts in inverter interfaced microgrids and formulate control techniques that provide greater design flexibility and also ensure longevity of operation.
