About the Talk:

Hybrid Renewable Energy Standalone Systems: Several isolated areas in the world current rely solely on diesel generators to fulfil their electrical energy demands. However, these generators have their distinct disadvantages including high costs and low efficiency, as well as noise and air pollution.

To remedy this, renewable energy sources (RESs) can be used as a source of cost-effective, environmentally-friendly energy. Examples of this would include wind, solar, hydro, biomass, etc. However, they are primarily intermittent in nature, especially in regards to wind and solar power generation. This makes their integration with micro-grids with diesel generators problematic, especially if the local grid is isolated from the main grid.

Hybrid standalone systems consist of many generation sources, most of which are connected to the AC or DC bus via power electronic devices. In this presentation, many possible hybrid renewable energy standalone systems will be discussed. The control of some of these systems will also be discussed in detail.

About the Presenter:

Ambrish Chandra FIEEE is a full professor of Electrical Engineering at École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS), Montréal since 1999. His educational background includes B.E. degree from the University of Roorkee (presently IITR), India, M. Tech. from IIT Delhi, and Ph.D. from University of Calgary, in 1977, 1980, and 1987, respectively. Before joining as an Associate Professor at ÉTS in 1994, he worked as a faculty at IITR. From 2012-15, he was director of multidisciplinary graduate program on Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency at ÉTS.

The primary focus of his work is related to the advancement of new theory & control algorithms for power electronic converters for power quality improvement in distribution systems & integration of renewable energy sources. Dr. Chandra is a Fellow of many organizations, such as, FIEEE, FCAE, FEIC, FIET (UK), FIE (India), FIETE (India) and registered as a Professional Engineer in Quebec. He is IEEE PES/IAS Distinguished Lecturer and is Chair of the subcommittee on ‘Power Quality’ within the IEEE IES. He is the Guest Editor for special issue of journal Energies on ‘Power Quality in Microgrids Based on Distributed Generators’. He is the recipient of highest Canadian award on electrical power engineering 2018 ‘IEEE Canada P. Ziogas Electric Power Award’.
