Design and Control of Power Electronic Converters for Power-to-X Facilities

Project Details


The uncertainty and fluctuations of renewable energy resources have led to large-scale curtailment of renewable production mainly to maintain the electric grid stability and power quality. Hydrogen production is a promising solution for utilizing excess renewable energy. Through implementation and proper operation of PtX systems in coordination with energy storage systems, prosumer units and loads, the excess renewable power can be converted into hydrogen or hydrogen-based substances.
In this project funded by Otto Mønsted Foundation under Visiting Professorship scheme, the researchers will investigate the efficient design, implementation, and control of power electronic converters for hydrogen production within the concept of PtX and also for electric power generation from stored hydrogen for example using fuel cells (X-to-Power). This research activities would be beneficial at both distribution and transmission levels of electric grid and can be applied in projects related to sector coupling, energy islands, active distribution networks, microgrids and industrial clusters. It also uncovers the controllability opportunities of power electronic converters to provide hydrogen-based grid support and service restoration features.
