A generic microgrid controller with rule-based dispatch

In order to provide more reliable electricity, facilitate clean enery integration and supply energy to remote communitites, part of the power grid may be required to operate autonomously. Microgrids which can be islanded from teh main grid, are deployed for this purpose. However, the compositions and objectives of microgrids vary in different applications and operating modes. This project aims to design a generic microgrid controller with modular rule-based dispatch to address these challenges.

Microgrid Protection Design Investigation using Real-Time Hardware-in-the-Loop

The electric power grid in Canada provides energy to the country. In order to provide more reliable power, to include more clean energy and to supply energy to remote Canadian communities, part of the power grid may be required to operate autonomously. At the distribution level, microgrids, which can be isolated from the main grid, are being deployed for this purpose. Protection schemes in microgrids are very different to those in conventional grids. This project deals with the design and deployment of microgrid protection schemes.

Méthodologie et outils de conception de simulateur temps réel avec matériel dans la boucle sur FPGA

Pour tester les contrôleurs électriques dans les domaines tels que les systèmes de puissance, l’aéronautique et l’automobile, on doit réaliser des simulateurs temps réel des moteurs et d’autres dispositifs électriques afin de s’assurer de leur bon fonctionnement et de leur sécurité dans diverses circonstances (ex. la foudre qui frappe une ligne de transmission ou un avion). Par ailleurs, ces simulateurs doivent réagir très rapidement aux commandes (de l’ordre du millionième de seconde).
