    Md. Mottahir Alam1,*, Ahteshamul Haque2, Mohammed Ali Khan3, Nebras M. Sobahi1, Ibrahim Mustafa Mehedi1,4, Asif Irshad Khan5

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.72, No.2, pp. 3999-4017, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.026353

    Abstract The shift towards the renewable energy market for carbon-neutral power generation has encouraged different governments to come up with a plan of action. But with the endorsement of renewable energy for harsh environmental conditions like sand dust and snow, monitoring and maintenance are a few of the prime concerns. These problems were addressed widely in the literature, but most of the research has drawbacks due to long detection time, and high misclassification error. Hence to overcome these drawbacks, and to develop an accurate monitoring approach, this paper is motivated toward the understanding of primary failure concerning a grid-connected photovoltaic (PV)… More >

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.72, No.2, pp. 2375-2395, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.025122

    Abstract Nowadays, the single state inverter for the grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) systems is becoming more and more popular as they can reduce circuit complexity resulting in less power losses of the inverter. This paper focuses on the use of model predictive control (MPC) to control a 3-phase and 2-level single-state grid-connected inverter in order to regulate the PV maximum power point (MPP). The algorithm of MPC scheme was done to measure the simultaneous current signal including predicting the next sampling current flow. The reference current (Id*) was used to control the distribution of electrical power from the solar cell to the… More >

    Abstract An epic topology of PV system for 1Ф grid tied framework with high gain altered Re Boost Luo converter is developed. In this epic topology, the PV (Photovoltaic) system is connected with single phase network via a Re Boost Luo converter and Voltage Source Inverter. The voltage variance issues of PV framework are overwhelmed by extricating most extreme power from the array. The Whale Optimization is utilized to extract the vast majority of the power from photovoltaic array. Similar to the existing topology, the proposed scheme is designed using reference casings of direct and quadrature hub components. The Re Boost… More >

    Ferroresonance Overvoltage Mitigation Using Surge Arrester for Grid-Connected Wind Farm

    Nehmdoh A. Sabiha*, Hend I. Alkhammash

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.31, No.2, pp. 1107-1118, 2022, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2022.020070

    Abstract Ferroresonance occurrence represents a very dangerous phenomenon to electric power systems. Concerning the recent trend of the applications of grid-connected wind farms, this phenomenon can lead to undesired overvoltages stressing the wind farm components. In this paper, the ferroresonance overvoltages are studied and mitigated for the grid-connected wind farm. Single-pole switching of the breaker is considered, where it is the most famous reason behind the ferroresonance transient events in the electric power systems. During the ferroresonance period, the transient voltage of the network is increased to more than three times the voltage level and associated with harmonics. Surge arrester is… More >

    Techno-Economic Analysis of a Grid-Connected Waste to Energy Gasification Plant: A Case Study

    Ahmed Abubakar Elwan*, Mohammed Hafiz Habibuddin

    Energy Engineering, Vol.118, No.6, pp. 1681-1701, 2021, DOI:10.32604/EE.2021.016291

    Abstract With population growth around the world, municipal waste disposal and continued energy demand becomes some of the major challenges to deal with. In order to address these, an approach is required for an optimal waste management system that offers the population benefit with a lower environmental impact. This study evaluates the technical-economic and environmental impact analysis of a grid-connected waste to energy (WtE) plant to power a Univerisiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) community. The energy recovery potential of the waste stream was assessed using the life cycle assessment (LCA) method with GaBiTM software (version 4). A technical, economic and environmental analysis… More >

    FCS-MPC Strategy for PV Grid-Connected Inverter Based on MLD Model

    Xiaojuan Lu, Qingbo Zhang*

    Energy Engineering, Vol.118, No.6, pp. 1729-1740, 2021, DOI:10.32604/EE.2021.014938

    Abstract In the process of grid-connected photovoltaic power generation, there are high requirements for the quality of the power that the inverter breaks into the grid. In this work, to improve the power quality of the grid-connected inverter into the grid, and the output of the system can meet the grid-connected requirements more quickly and accurately, we exhibit an approach toward establishing a mixed logical dynamical (MLD) model where logic variables were introduced to switch dynamics of the single-phase photovoltaic inverters. Besides, based on the model, our recent efforts in studying the finite control set model predictive control (FCS-MPC) and devising… More >
