Advanced mechatronics technologies for future competitive
industrial and logistics systems under the digital change

 

The improvement of energy efficiency and the greater exploitation of renewable energy sources by means of power electronics converters are crucial objectives in many industrialized countries, representing a necessary condition for sustainable energy growth. In this framework, the development of high-efficient and grid-friendly power electronics converters play a key role, being the enabling technology for the exploitation of photovoltaic and wind renewable sources, management of energy storage as well as for the realization of electric mobility concepts. The scope of the PhD is to develop advanced power electronics converters, exploiting ongoing breakthrough in wide-bandgap semiconductor devices and adopting advanced control and monitoring functions. Moreover, future DC and AC smart nanogrids will be dominated by power electronics converters and the PhD research will be also aimed at the development of control techniques that enables a “grid-friendly” operation, including the improvement of the power converter stability in a complex grid, the input impedance shaping, and the adoption of advance monitoring functions, such as on-line stability monitoring and automatic tuning based on mission profiles and operational data.
