Development of computationally efficient models for modular multilevel converters with integrated battery energy storage systems

The research project aims to develop new computer models for accurate representation of battery energy storage systems that are used in modern power systems. In particular state-of-the-art modular multi-level converters with integrated dc-dc converters will be considered. The models to be developed will provide high levels of accuracy and feature low computational intensity so that study of battery systems that are integrated into the grid using advanced converter systems becomes feasible on present-day computing systems. The outcomes of this research will enable practicing engineers and researchers to conduct studies with accuracy and low computation burden. The findings of this research will be experimentally verified using scaled-down laboratory setups.
