Abstract:With the rise of renewable energy, micro-grids are becoming increasingly common. These weak grids are susceptible to inrush currents which can cause significant stability issues. Therefore a concept device has been created that can actively compensate for these peak currents. In this report a parameterisable control system for this concept device is developed. The control system reacts to voltage sags that can for example occur during inrush currents. A Simulink model has been created and using the Simulink extension HDL Coder, converted to synthesisable HDL Code. With the use of Xilinx Vivado this model is programmed onto a FPGA. The model was verified to work correctly in simulation as well as on the FPGA. Additional work is needed to meet the timing constraints in Vivado as well as to integrate the model with the other subsystems.
