Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This paper presents a generalized switching function model of the modular multilevel converter (MMC) that can be used instead of MMC electromagnetic transient simulation model for full-scale simulations of high-voltage dc (HVDC) and flexible ac transmission systems (FACTS). The proposed method is computationally more efficient and numerically stable than its electromagnetic transient simulation counterpart, and it is applicable for wide range of studies, including ac and dc network faults. The proposed switching function model is packaged in a graphical form to suit various simulation platforms such as Simulink and PSCAD. The validity of the presented model is confirmed using simulation and its scalability has been demonstrated on MMC with 301 cells per arm, considering power reversal during normal operation and dc short circuit fault.
