PREFACE

The concept of electronic (static) power conversion has gained widespread acceptance in power system applications. As such, electronic power converters are increasingly employed for power conversion and conditioning, compensation, and active filtering. The gradual increase in the depth of penetration of distributed energy resource (DER) units in power systems and further acceptance of new trends and concepts, for example, microgirds, active distribution systems, and smart grids, also indicate a wider role for power-electronic converters in the electric power system.

While a fairly large number of books on various power-electronic converter configurations and their principles of operation do exist, there is a gap in terms of modeling, analysis, and control of power-electronic converters in the context of power systems. This book addresses this gap and concentrates on power conversion and conditioning applications and presents the analysis and control design methodologies for a specific class of high-power electronic converters, namely, the three-phase voltage-sourced converter (VSC). It provides systematic, comprehensive, unified, and detailed coverage of the relevant materials.

This book serves as a reference book for senior undergraduate and graduate students in power engineering programs, practicing engineers who deal with grid integration and operation of DER systems, design engineers, and researchers in the areas of electric power generation, transmission, distribution, ...
