Recommended Practice for the Design and Application of Power Electronics in Electrical Power Systems
|Publication Date:||22 September 2016|
This document summarizes current electrical engineering methods and design practices for applying power electronics (PE) in electrical power distribution and conversion systems from a common frame of reference for reliable integrated electrical power systems. It recommends PE equipment requirements, necessary power system analytical studies, PE design analysis and testing, and certification and inspection procedures.
The purpose of this document is to recommend a methodology for analysis and specifications parameters of PE equipment for electrical power systems. It analyzes the impact of power electronics building blocks (PEBBs) or integrated power systems (IPSs) on size, life cycle cost, weight, fuel efficiency, and risk reduction of implementation.
