Abstract [en]

The main objective of the project is to develop a Photovoltaic (PV) system using three phase Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) converter as the interfacing component in Power factory. Already existing model in Power factory tool uses static generator as the interfacing converter. Moreover the control technique implemented within the PV model is very basic. Aworking model is already available in PSCAD simulation tool using PWM converter but it is a very detailed one in terms of modeling which results in longer simulation time. Through this project a new PV model is developed in Power factory, an improved version of existing PSCAD and Power factory models. Then a comparison study is carried out between the PSCAD and the new Power factory model in order to validate the created model’s functionality. Several case studies with the DC and AC side disturbances are performed to analyze the behavior of two models. The new PV model is found to function very similar to that of the existing PSCAD model, thus proving its credibility. Further improvements and additional functions are also included in the new Power factory model which makes it a better choice to carry out grid studies than the existing model in PSCAD.
