Nathalia Campos conducted her secondment at KU Leuven, from June to August 2019, under Prof Jef Beerten‘s supervision. Her main goal was to investigate the applicability of RMS (root mean square) power converter models with different levels of complexity for stability studies.
Her results identified the limitations for the use of these models. This led her to investigate hybrid modelling as an alternative, combining the advantages of both EMT (electromagnetic transients) and RMS approaches.
She worked from the EnergyVille innovation hub, which was an enriching experience to exchange ideas with researchers from closely related areas. Towards the end of her stay, she presented her work at the HVDC Colloquium 2019, Leuven.
