Abstract

Power electronic interfaces (PEI) play an important role in future power systems. From planning and operation perspectives,there is a need to model PEIs for power flow applications. In this paper, precise modeling of a DC-DC boost converterfor load flow analysis is presented, which can be generalized for other kinds of PEIs. As an application, the presentedmodel is employed for uncertainty analysis of systems, considering uncertainty in wind power generation. The simulationsare performed on a wind farm DC distribution network. The results demonstrate the robustness of the presented load flowalgorithm.
