Title of Keynote Speech

Partial Power Energy Processing – A New Toolbox for Efficient DC Microgrids

AbstractIn recent years, interest in the partial and differential power processing approaches has increased among both academic and industrial researchers. This technology was demonstrated in a broad range of applications, including but not limited to photovoltaic (PV) systems, both string and module levels, battery energy storage systems, DC data centers, electric vehicle (EV) charging stations, etc. However, despite the rising number of publications, the literature demonstrates a knowledge gap related to practical implementation issues of this technology. This keynote provides an overview of the existing solutions, compares them regarding practical applications, and discusses critical issues like protection and controllability. The keynote is based on numerous practical examples of how partial power processing could be applied in DC microgrids. Considering their wide applicability, the partial power converters could be considered a new toolbox for implementing dc microgrids with ultimate power processing efficiency.
