Abstract

Due to the scalability and flexibility of various modular power electronic converters, integrating split energy storage components (such as batteries and supercapacitors) is feasible and attractive. This paper investigates the operational and economic characteristics of different ac/dc fault-resilient schemes using energy storage integrated modular converters in ac-dc conversion applications. Based on the topological features between the energy storage system (ESS) and the ac and/or dc system, four energy storage based modular converter deployment schemes are presented. Through a case study, operational performance including fault isolation and power compensation under extreme ac/dc fault conditions are verified using time-domain simulation. System losses are evaluated, whereas detailed design considerations, major component usage and estimated capital costs are articulated. The four schemes are compared and selection guidelines are presented. In general, the schemes with independent ESSs would be preferable for such ac-dc conversion applications due to their high operational flexibility.
