About this book

This book examines a number of topics, mainly in connection with advances in semiconductor devices and magnetic materials and developments in medium and large-scale renewable power plant technologies, grid integration techniques and new converter topologies, including advanced digital control systems for medium-voltage networks. The book’s individual chapters provide an extensive compilation of fundamental theories and in-depth information on current research and development trends, while also exploring new approaches to overcoming some critical limitations of conventional grid integration technologies. Its main objective is to present the design and implementation processes for medium-voltage converters, allowing the direct grid integration of renewable power plants without the need for step-up transformers.

About the authors

Md. Rabiul Islam (M’14, IEEE) received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degree from Rajshahi University of Engineering and Technology (RUET), Rajshahi, Bangladesh, in 2003 and 2009, respectively, both in electrical and electronic engineering (EEE); and the Ph.D. degree from University of Technology Sydney (UTS), Sydney, Australia, in 2014, in electrical engineering.

From 2005 to 2008, he lectured with the Department of EEE, RUET, where he became an Assistant Professor in June 2008. He is currently a Research Associate with the School of Electrical, Mechanical and Mechatronic Systems, UTS. He has authored and coauthored more than 40 technical papers and 2 book chapters. His research interests are in the fields of power electronic converters, renewable energy technologies and smart grid.

Dr. Islam is a member of the Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh and the Australian Institute of Energy, Australia. He received the University Gold Medal and Joynal Memorial Award from RUET for his outstanding academic performance while pursuing the B.Sc. engineering degree. He also received the Best Paper Award at IEEE PECon-2012. He acts as a reviewer for several prestigious international journals.
