The project has introduced new solutions to the problems of modelling and control of renewable energy sources and has
developed new technologies which allow for a more efficient integration of such sources in the electricity grid.
Emphasis has been given to the following key topics and technologies for renewable energy systems: (i) intelligent
control of power generators (synchronous or asynchronous) used in renewable energy systems (control of rotational
motion, electromagnetic field, as well as control of active and reactive power), (ii) intelligent control of the
power electronics that connect renewable power generation units to the grid (control of AC to DC voltage source
converters, control of inverters, AC lines control through active power filters, control of HVDC lines),
(iii) synchronization and stability of distributed power generation units (interconnected PMSGs or DFIGs),
as well as power planning and management in distributed renewable energy sources, (iv) fault diagnosis for
power generators and power electronics used for producing power from renewable sources, as well as condition
monitoring of the associated transmission and distribution grid.
