Abstract
Future grids will consist of large scale of integration of both renewable and other distributed energy sources. Therefore, advanced power electronics converters for critical loads will be needed in order to enhance power quality, and to ensure proper and secure operation of future grids. These power converters must be able to provide intelligent power management as well as ancillary services. This paper proposes a solid state transformer (SST) which consists of medium frequency transformer and t...
