Abstract or Summary
  • Power generation has been an ever growing exigency since the invention of electric power. The world is gradually inching away from conventional generation toward renewable generation. Advancements in renewable energy generation have been at a steady positive pace over the past few decades with different resources developing to be feasible alternatives. A smooth and gradual transition from conventional generation to predominantly renewable energy sourced generation is what the world is looking toward in the next couple of centuries. The grid emulator is a device that will facilitate the testing and development of wave energy generators, thereby enabling the inclusion of energy generated using wave power into the existing generation mix, without causing adverse effects to the host system. The grid emulator will enable testing of wave energy devices under different grid disturbances as well as provide isolation between the devices and the grid during initial testing. This thesis presents the preliminary functions planned using the grid emulator, the specifications of the device, the design details and simulation results. The grid emulator under development is currently limited to wave energy devices, however, anomalous devices could be developed for the research and development of other under developed and untapped renewable resources.
