How can we build autonomous robots that operate in unstructured and dynamic environments such as homes or hospitals? This problem has been investigated under several disciplines, including planning (motion planning, task planning, etc.), and reinforcement learning.
Power converters can take several roles when connected to an electrical grid, ranging from grid-following converters, which inject current into a given voltage source provided by the grid, to grid-forming converters, which are able to energize an electrical grid 'from scratch' and regulate its operation when other generators and loads are connected. Actually, this performance is quite similar to the one for the well-known synchronous generator.
