The foundation aims to contribute to Japan’s international efforts on the environment, sharing project collaborations as well as promoting Japan’s rich conservation knowledge and experience in developing nations.

  • PWM Control of Dual Active Bridge Converters

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    Background: A dual active bridge (DAB) DC-DC converter is ideally suited for high-power galvanically isolated DC-DC conversion. The DAB DC-DC converter has advantages of high power density Zero Voltage Switching (ZVS) bidirectional power transfer capability a modular and symmetric structure and simple control requirements. The DAB DC-DC converter can also be used for multi-port operation which is a feature that is useful in interfacing several DC sources and loads using a single converter.

  • Grid Integration of Wind Power: Best Practices for Emerging Wind Markets

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:

    This report describes the impact of wind power on the grid, methods to analyze the impact and approaches to mitigate the impact. Countries like Denmark, Germany and Spain, and regions within the United States that include Texas and Colorado have achieved high penetration of wind energy with modest changes to the grid. The key to high penetration of wind energy has been flexible grids, according to the authors. They outline the lessons learned and focus on their applicability to emerging wind energy markets.

    This two-page document introduces the research by the Transmission and Grid Integration group at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). Researchers in the group provide scientific, engineering and analytical expertise to help advance alternative energy and accelerate its integration into the nation's electrical grid.

  • Market-Based Indian Grid Integration Study Options

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:

    This report describes the nature of a market-based integration study and how this approach, while new to Indian grid operation and planning, is necessary to understand how to operate and expand the grid to best accommodate the expansion of variable generation. The authors discuss options in defining a study’s scope, such as data granularity, generation modeling and geographic scope. They also explore how Gujarat's method of grid operation and its current system reliability will affect how an integration study can be performed.
