Title: Modeling and Monitoring of a Hybrid Solid State Transformer (HSST)
Abstract: Hybrid solid-state transformer is an integration between the traditional line frequency transformer and a pure solid-state transformer to balance the cost and improve flexibility. In today’s talk, an overview of some recent progress related to the development of hybrid solid-state transformers will be presented and discussed. Particularly, this presentation will cover the modeling and monitoring system development of the hybrid solid-state transformer.
