Introduction to renewable sources: world energy scenario, Wind, solar,
hydro, geothermal, availability and power extraction. Introduction to
solar energy: Photovoltaic effect, basics of power generation, P-V & I-V
characteristics, effect of insolation, temperature, diurnal variation,
shading; Modules, connections, ratings; Power extraction (MPP), tracking
and MPPT schemes; standalone systems, grid interface, storage, AC-DC
loads. Power converters for solar: Micro converter, DC-DC

Inverters: 1ph, 3ph inverters with & w/o x??mer, Heric, H6, Multilevel
Neutral point clamp, Modular multilevel, CSI; Control schemes: unipolar,
bipolar, PLL and synchronization, power balancing / bypass, Parallel power
processing; Grid connection issues: leakage current, Islanding, harmonics,
active/reactive power feeding, unbalance. Intro to wind energy: P-V, I-V
characteristic, wind power system: turbine-generator-inverter, mechanical
control, ratings; Power extraction (MPP) and MPPT schemes. Generators for
wind: DC generator with DC to AC converters; Induction generator with &
w/o converter; Synchronous generator with back to back controlled/
uncontrolled converter; Doubly fed induction generator with rotor side
converter topologies; permanent magnet based generators. Battery: Types,
charging discharging. Introduction to AC and DC microgrids.
