Dr Grazia Todeschini
I joined the College of Engineering at Swansea University after six years of work in the power industry with the aim to use my experience to solve the challenges related to the integration of power electronics devices in the transmission and distribution systems.
The research topics I am working on include:
- Development of advanced control systems to provide robust and reliable operation of power-electronics devices, and study of the interaction of these devices with the power system
- Development of ancillary functions which help to support grid operation, including reactive power injection, power oscillation damping and harmonic filtering.
- Assessment of the impact of harmonic components on power measurements
The tools used to perform my research include computer simulations, laboratory testing and field testing.
