Abstract: Power electronics are becoming ubiquitous in the power grid, driven largely by renewable energy. In addition to being the grid interface for PV and wind turbines, power electronics also enable new grid infrastructures and energy storage that are necessary for supporting large-scale renewable development. With many countries pledging to carbon neutrality in less than 30 years, the grid will be increasingly dominated by renewables and inevitably evolve into a converter-based power system that is in sharp contrast to today�s grid based on synchronous generators. This talk gives a general overview of power electronics applications in power systems, discusses fundamental differences between converters and machines in the context of system stability, and sheds some lights on possible ways to design and control a converter-based power system.
