Abstract

Electric vehicle is regarded as the backbone of future transport system. The key inputs to electric vehicle technology are climate change, emission-free zones, growing mobility, higher efficiency, rising prices of fossil fuels, etc. The batteries of plug-in electric vehicles may be treated as an energy source capable of drawing excess energy and delivering the same to fulfill the load demand. Ancillary service in the form of frequency regulation is an important aspect of grid and is continuously exercised in order to maintain balance between generation and the load demand. The power from conventional and renewable sources determine the generation capacity. The gap between generation and load demand can be fulfilled using batteries of electric vehicles parked with the aggregator. The chapter describes the capacity estimation by the aggregator and energy management strategies well in advance for bidding price and the commercial value of electric vehicle for executing bidirectional power transfer between vehicle and the grid. The various approaches of capacity estimation by the aggregator listed in this chapter contribute to the grid in the process of frequency regulation, thus relieving the conventional generation thereby increasing their useable life.

Indexed INScopus

Abstract

High farad values of ultra capacitors (UCs) are associated with very large current during charging. This paper proposes numerous switching configurations within ultra capacitor units supplying energy to load in efficient way. This reconfiguration dealt with series–parallel connections with reference of load voltage maximum and minimum limit. By using proper switching, 99% of stored energy can be delivered to load in minimum time. In normal case, only 73% stored energy could be utilized by load. Proposed scheme shows that operation will become faster, i.e., 57.67–75.68%.

Abstract

Voltage control is an important phenomenon in the ever-escalating power system. It is presumed that the voltages at various buses are within their tolerable limits. The elements of transmission line absorb the reactive power. The loads are mostly inductive which influence the voltage profile at buses. The paper examines the voltage profile at various loading conditions and suggests the ways to improve it. The paper studies the requirement of reactive power in a power system.

Abstract

This paper is based on the basic performance analysis of Distributed Static Series Compensator (DSSC) required for the improvement of power system stability. The DSSC has small size and weight with cylindrical structure that is put on the line conductor without grounding. It has the capability of changing the impedance and altering the power flow through the lines. The fundamental behavior of DSSC and Static Synchronous Series Compensator (SSSC) is similar. However, a DSSC costs less and higher reliability. In this paper, single machine infinite bus system (SMIB) has been simulated in PSCAD for various operating conditions of power system such as steady state and during fault conditions.

Initially designed reference axial flux BLDC motor is designed considering 48 stator slots and 16 rotor poles of NdFeb type single layer permanent magnet. Three-dimensional finite element modeling and analysis have been performed to obtain cogging torque profile of reference motor. Additional layer of the permanent magnet is created keeping usage of permanent magnet same with an objective of cogging torque reduction. Three-dimensional finite element modeling and analysis have been performed to obtain cogging torque profile of improved axial flux BLDC motor with double layer permanent magnet design. It is analyzed that double-layer magnet design is an effective technique to reduce the cogging torque of axial flux BLDC motor.

Abstract

This paper presents the result of the two-dimensional finite element analysis on the effects of rotor pole arc variation and number of teeth per rotor pole with different teeth depths and stator excitation pattern on various performance parameters like cogging torque, developed torque, harmonic torques, torque ripple and phase inductance for an 6/8, three phase flux reversal motor. A novel excitation pattern of exciting each phase for one step with positive and negative excitation in one rotor pole pitch resulting into higher torque per ampere is presented. Three teeth per rotor pole with the teeth height of 2.5% of the pole height reduces the torque ripple by 37.31% with the average torque reduction of just 5.36%.

Abstract

The paper entails simulation of prototype model of HVDC transmission system. This involves the design of converter circuitry, gate firing units, rectifier and inverter control systems and gamma detection circuits. The complete model converts AC power into DC power by controlled rectifier and then converts this DC power into AC power by line commutated inverter, after transmitting DC power through the line. There are three basic controls namely Constant current, Constant extinction angle and Constant ignition angle control required for prevention of large fluctuation in DC current due to variation in AC system voltage, maintaining DC voltage near rated value and prevention of commutation failure in inverter. This paper aims for Conversion of power, Bi-directional power flow on HVDC link and behavior of HVDC link during fault occurrence and fault clearance are main objectives of this paper. Simulation of complete HVDC transmission system for 3 kW, 415 V, 50 Hz system is done in PSIM (9.0.3) software. Thus, complete simulation model of prototype HVDC system is developed using the basic concepts and appropriate circuitry.

Abstract

Two high voltage direct current transmission line circuits have been simulated in the PSIM software, one employing the Individual Phase Control scheme and the other, Equidistant Pulse Control scheme. This paper presents the circuitry employed in the two simulations and the results obtained from both. It is shown that the circuit employing the former scheme suffers from an excess of non-characteristic harmonics when operating with a weak AC system whereas the latter can work on weak AC systems without problems of harmonic instability because it generates firing pulses independent of the AC source. The implementation of the two schemes clearly demonstrates how one is dependent on the feedback from the source whilst the other utilizes a Phase Locked Loop to circumvent this problem.

Abstract

In the smart grid, the monitoring and estimation of the power grid states are essential factors for real-time operation and control. In this regard, a wide area measurement system (WAMS) needs to be developed, wherein the phasor measurement units (PMUs) and communication infrastructure (CI) are the essential components. To achieve the economical design of WAMS, PMUs need to be placed optimally, so that with minimal cost, the complete system observability is ensured. In addition, the cost of CI, to connect all the PMUs, needs to be considered during the economical design of WAMS. Hence, in this work, the simultaneous optimization of PMUs and CI cost has been considered as the objective, whereas the complete system observability has been considered as the constraint. The consequence of zero injection buses (ZIBs) on the economic design of WAMS has also been considered. In addition, the effect of N−1 contingency, pre-installed fiber optic, and pre-installed PMUs have also been simulated. In this work, a new Steiner tree-based approach has been proposed for securing economical design of CI. The swarm intelligence-based binary dragonfly algorithm (BDA) has been adopted for optimization of considered problem. To showcase the effectiveness of the proposed approach, it has been simulated on the IEEE 14, 30, and 118 bus standard test systems. The comparative analysis has also been presented, and it clearly indicates the effectiveness of the proposed approach compared with other reported methods.

Abstract

In this work, a modified version of the sine–cosine algorithm (SCA) has been developed to solve complex optimization problems. This proposed modified algorithm integrates the multi-agent system and sine–cosine algorithm and is termed as multi-agent sine–cosine algorithm (MA-SCA). This work also proposes a simplified strategy for the self-learning operator and modification in inversion operator. These proposed modifications have been validated by implementing the proposed MA-SCA algorithm on standard functions and comparing results with other reported optimization methods. Furthermore, in this work, MA-SCA algorithm has also been applied to optimally deploy the distributed energy resources (DERs) and shunt capacitors (SCs) in the distribution network with and without consideration of the existing on-load tap changing transformer (OLTC). The considered objectives in this optimization problem are reduction of cost of annual energy loss (CAEL) and minimization of voltage deviation under different loading conditions. To demonstrate the efficacy of the MA-SCA algorithm, it has been implemented on IEEE 33 bus radial distribution network (DN) and real-life Indian 108 bus radial DN. The comparison of obtained results with the results obtained by using other optimization methods has been carried out, and it indicates that MA-SCA algorithm provides the improved solution.

Abstract

Wide area monitoring system has been implemented in power systems to improve control and protection aspects by carrying out the continuous synchronous measurement. It consists of phasor measurement units (PMUs) along with communication infrastructure (CI) to connect all PMUs to the phasor data concentrator (PDC). In this work, simultaneous optimization of PMU count thereby its cost and CI cost has been taken as the objective while ensuring entire system observability. To incorporate the effect of zero injection bus, an improved model has been adopted. A modified objective function has been proposed which enhances maximum observability and further improves the reliability of system monitoring. Dijkstra's algorithm has been utilized for designing optimal CI as well as to identify the location of PDC. Practical operating scenarios such as N-1 contingency and the presence of pre-installed PMU or fiber optic have also been simulated. Binary dragonfly algorithm has been applied to solve the considered optimization problem. To demonstrate the efficacy of the proposed method it has been implemented on different IEEE standard test cases. A comparison of obtained results has been presented which indicates the superiority of the proposed method over other methods reported in the literature.

Abstract

Load shedding as control action plays vital role in preventing the system from cascaded outages and then blackout. Thereby, this approach helps in maintaining secure and reliable functioning of power network. In case contingency arises or predicted loading in forthcoming interval threatens system security, then in such a situation load shedding scheme ought to be planned in anticipation. Load shedding is to be carried out at some suitable buses as it would not be appropriate to perform load shedding at all the buses because it causes inconvenience to the consumer. Therefore, this work presents a model for determining optimum shedding of load at preferred locations to mitigate line overloading. In order to select the buses where the load shed is to be performed, sensitivity analysis is carried out. Sine Cosine Algorithm (SCA) has been applied to determine the optimum load shed as this algorithm possesses the ability to reach the global minimum and requires tuning of only one algorithm-specific parameter. The scheme has been implemented over the IEEE-14 and IEEE-39 bus system. For demonstrating the efficacy, the comparison of results has been carried out. It has been presented that the proposed technique offers superior results pertaining to amount of load shed and successfully alleviates line overloading.

Abstract

With the advent of PMUs, measuring technology has progressed extensively. Despite this advancement, electrical power network entities have not widely installed PMUs due to requirement of large investment. This motivates the researchers to determine the feasible location where installation of optimal count of PMU assure entire network observability. This proposed work also considers the same objective. In this regard, binary dragonfly algorithm (BDA) has been applied for deciding optimal PMU count and their likely locations such that entire power network is observable. Other considerations such as inclusion of zero injection buses (ZIBs) and network contingencies have been incorporated in the formulation as well. The considered optimization method (BDA) is applied to different (9, 14, 30, 39, 57) bus test systems. The results attained using proposed technique have been compared with the other published results in the literature to validate the usefulness of the proposed algorithm.

Abstract

In recent electrical power systems, phasor measurement units (PMUs) are playing a crucial role with regard to power system monitoring, control and protection. This presented work mainly aims to attain entire network observability with the incorporation of lesser number of PMUs. In this regard, the binary sine cosine algorithm (BSCA) has been employed to decide on optimal PMU number and their feasible location such that the entire power network is observable. Impacts of consideration of network contingencies (single line/PMU outage) with and without zero injection buses (ZIBs) have also been considered while solving the considered optimization problem. The viability of the considered method has been investigated by implementing it onto the various standard (IEEE-14 and IEEE-30 bus) systems. In order to confirm the efficacy of the employed algorithm the obtained results have been compared with other approaches employed in the literature. Obtained results indicate that BSCA offers similar or improved results.

Abstract

The paper presents an estimation method to determine the synchronous impedance of the synchronous generator. The synchronous impedance of cylindrical rotor alternator is estimated based on the equivalent circuit model and voltage regulation. Genetic algorithm based impedance estimation technique is adopted, where only machine rating is used. Conventional methods viz., synchronous impedance method uses rated voltage and rated current obtained from more than one operating condition to determine synchronous impedance value. However, Genetic Algorithm based method uses the rated voltage and current, i.e. without isolation or disturbing the normal operating condition of the machine to estimate the value. The test results of the GA-based estimation method are found to be closer to test results of conventional methods.

Abstract

For efficient performance of any vector controlled drive, motor parameters are to be estimated with utmost accuracy. Offline and online parameter estimation techniques are generally used for estimating parameters. In this paper, the offline technique is adopted due to its advantage over latter technique. Under offline parameter estimation, the new strategy is simulated for estimating the machine parameters. Inverter test and single phase test are used for estimating parameters. Only three switches of the inverter are used for estimating parameters in inverter test and four switches in single phase test. These tests are easy to implement with no extra hardware, no mechanical job is required and equations are easy to understand and implement. These tests are simulated in MATLAB Simulink and parameters obtained are compared with actual parameters of machine model available in MATLAB Simulink.

Abstract

In this paper, a II-level inverter fed induction motor (IM) speed control is presented. A Scalar speed control method is used to control speed of IM. The suggested inverter topology significantly reduces the switching device count. The presented work uses a II-level inverter to control the speed of motor. This topology required eight switches for the II-level inverter output voltage generation. Variable frequency multicarrier PWM is utilized for controlling the output voltage of inverter. The IM speed control is performed in both open loop and closed loop scalar control methods. In both speed control methods, v/f ratio and ripples in the torque of the IM are maintained constant. PI controller controls speed regulation of induction motor. The suggested converter topology fed induction motor drive has been simulated in a MATLAB environment.

Abstract

The main drawback of multilevel inverters based on cascaded H-bridge (CHB) are usage of large number of switching components and dc-sources. This lead to high switching losses and reduction in efficiency. Thus minimization of switching components and dc sources gain significant importance in multilevel inverters. Cascaded-transformer based multilevel inverters (CTMIs) have absolutely reduced the need of several dc-sources and switching components for CHBs. This paper primarily focuses on nine level cascaded transformer based multilevel inverter and proposed topology significantly reduces the number of dc voltage sources and IGBT switching components. Thus switching power losses and requirement of gate driver circuitry are minimized. Comparison between existing nine level CTMI and proposed nine level CTMI has been presented. The operation and performance of proposed topology has been tested with variable frequency multi carrier PWM technique and the results have been discussed with the help of MATLAB/Simulink environment.

Abstract

In this paper a new multilevel module multilevel converter (MLM-MLI) topology with reduced switch count is proposed. The proposed topology significantly reduces number of dc voltage sources, IGBT switches, switching power losses and gate driver circuitry. A comparative analysis of existing topology and proposed topology has been carried out for eleven level multilevel converter. The analytical analysis and optimization structure of proposed new MLM-MLI and its submultilevel converter is also presented. Operation and performance of proposed eleven level converter topology tested with dissimilar types of multicarrier pulse width modulation (MCPWM) techniques, precisely in-phase disposition (IPD), anti-phase opposition disposition (APOD), carrier overlap (CO) and variable frequency PWM techniques. The results have been confirmed in MATLAB/Simulink in mandate to outstanding the superlative MCPWM technique that gives lowest THD in converter output voltage.

Abstract

The application of computational approaches in the past has yielded appreciable results. The increased system complexity causes difficulty in system modeling. Analytical tools were vastly employed, including areas such as biology, medicine, humanities, management, and engineering. Soft computing techniques evolved as a result of inspiration from biological process occurring in nature; hence, performance is based on a probabilistic approach. As a result, global optimum solutions cannot be always expected for all the optimization problems, especially for multimodal objective function. The solution determined by applying soft computing technique can be global optimum or local optimum. The ability of soft computing techniques to reach global optimum solution for maximum number of times out of certain number of trials depends on their ability “to explore search space” and “to exploit good solutions”, during optimization process. Not all soft computing techniques have the same ability “to explore” and “exploit”. Since early 20th century, many soft computing referred as classical soft computing techniques have been developed so far for solving the issues concerned with deregulated power system. The introduction of nonlinear devices such as thermal units with multi-valve steam turbines, Heat-Recovery combined cycle Steam Generators (HRSG), contributed in uplifting the energy efficiency of the power system. Therefore, it furthers the complexity in the mathematical model of the system. To account for increased mathematical complexity, certain approximations needed to be considered while applying classical soft computing techniques. Due to approximations, the results determined by these methods turned out to be sub-optimal. The implementation of such sub-optimal results could have resulted into a huge annual revenue loss. Therefore, the primary purpose of implementing the techniques was not fulfilled. Technological advancements led to increased storage capability and improved performance of the digital computers. This helped to combat the limitations of the classical soft computing techniques and encouraged researchers to develop more soft computing techniques. The precise system modeling along with appropriate objective function can offer optimal solutions along with financial implications. The current trend is to focus on improving the operational efficiency of the system, thereby slowing down the rate of depletion of fossil fuel and saving huge amount of money.

Abstract

Economic Load Dispatch (ELD) is the most inherent necessity in power system operation to minimize the cost as well as the accomplishment of load demand abundantly. The main purpose of ELD is to satisfy load demand with the minimization of cost. Distinct techniques have been used for resolving the ELD problem. This paper introduces a robust and effective technique named Artificial Eco System Optimization (AEO) Algorithm to solve ELD. AEO is a population-based optimizer stimulated by the flow of energy into the Earth’s ecosystem. This algorithm shows three distinct functions of living organisms, including production, consumption, and decomposition. By accomplishing three operator producer, consumer, and decomposer whole algorithm works and balances between the exploitation and the exploration phases of the technique. For solving the ELD problem, AEO has been implemented on multiple test systems with an account of different restrictions and AEO has given better results than different several novels, previous and hybrid optimization techniques. The outcomes confirm the robustness, expediency, effectiveness, and efficacy of AEO in terms of computational time and vicinity to the global optimum solution.

Abstract

This article aims to determine the feasible optimal solution for the short-term hydrothermal scheduling (STHS) problem using the efficient backtracking search optimization technique. The problem formulation for hydrothermal systems is highly complex owing to its nonlinear nature. Hydrothermal scheduling is considered with two decision variables simultaneously: thermal states and water discharge. These two variables are instrumental in determining the optimal hourly schedule of power generation in hydrothermal power plants. The optimum solution is obtained using the backtracking search algorithm (BSA) with two primary operations, namely, mutation and crossover. The BSA is an optimization technique free from high-sensitivity control parameters, because it has only one control parameter for finding the optimal solution. It also has powerful exploration and exploitation capabilities. The simulation results corroborate that BSA is highly efficient compared to existing optimization techniques (e.g. oppositional real coded chemical reaction-based optimization, differential evolution) in terms of overall efficiency and the quality of the solutions.

Abstract

Power System network is formed mainly to generate power from all the generators to fulfil total load demand and transmission line losses. The Economic Load Dispatch (ELD) problem is considered to be one of the most important problems of cost minimization in power system operations. Various approaches have been taken to solve the ELD problem. In this paper a powerful Search Group Optimization (SGO) technique is implemented to solve the ELD problem. SGO maintains a good balance between the exploitation and the exploration phases of the technique. This optimization technique tends to find the promising regions of the search space from the first iteration onwards. The algorithm uses five important steps to reach the optimal solution of the ELD problem. Namely, initial population, initial selection of search group, search group mutation, family generation and new search group selection. Using these five steps, the SGO tends to make a smooth transition towards the optimized solution. The SGO is applied to five test systems and the final results obtained have been compared to various other recently developed optimization techniques. The results prove the robustness, feasibility, effectiveness and efficiency of SGO in terms of computational time and proximity to the global optimum solution.

Abstract

Economic Load Dispatch (ELD) is an important part of cost minimization procedure in power system operation. Different derivative and probabilistic methods are used to solve ELD problems. This paper proposes a powerful Salp Swarm Algorithm (SSA) to explain the ELD issue including equality and inequality restrictions. The main aim of ELD is to satisfy the entire electric load at minimum cost. The SSA is a population based probabilistic method which guides its search agents that are randomly placed in the search space, towards an optimal point using their fitness function and also keeps a track of the best solution achieved by each search agent. SSA is being used to solve the ELD problem with their high exploration and local optima escaping technique. This algorithm confirms that the promising areas of the search space are exploited to have a smooth transition from exploration to exploitation using the movement of Salps in the sea. Simulation results prove that the proposed algorithm surpasses other existing optimization techniques in terms quality of solution obtained and computational efficiency. The final results also prove the robustness of the SSA.

Abstract

Application of power management system (PMS) in microbial fuel cell (MFC) for potential energy harvesting is coming up as an emerging trend for field level applications. Though the energy recovery and environment benefits of MFC are well recognized, still scaling-up challenges are confronted during onsite applications for sufficient power generation. Increasing number of research on PMS in MFC studies reveals incorporation of various power electronic components and different maximum power point tracking (MPPT) algorithm models to boost electricity generation. From the point of stacking-up of MFCs, present review focuses on use of different electronic circuits i.e. DC-DC booster, supercapacitor, Metal- Oxide Semiconductor Field- Effect Transistor (MOSFET), amplifier, transistor, etc. incorporated in PMS. Tracking of maximum power point in MFC has been described using different MPPT algorithms. Some recent field trials are described which emphasize the importance of incorporation of PMS for boosting and storage of electricity generated from MFC. A suitable electrical and hydraulic series parallel connection establishment during stack mode operation of MFC is inevitable to generate desired voltage output. Present review aims towards applications of PMS in MFC for making power output useable in realistic applications. Valuable studies providing useful information, challenges and their probable solutions regarding PMS for stacking of MFC are discussed

Abstract

This paper presents behavior analysis and digital implementation of current error space phasor based hysteresis controller applied to three-phase three-level flying capacitor converter as front-end topology. The a controller is self-adaptive in nature and takes the converter from three-level to a two-level mode of operation and vice-versa, following various trajectories of sector change with the change in reference dc-link voltage demanded by the load. It keeps current error space phasor within the prescribed hexagonal boundary. During the contingencies, the the proposed controller takes the converter in overmodulation mode to meet the load demand, and once the need is satisfied, controller brings back the converter in normal operating range. Simulation results are presented to validate the behavior of the controller to meet the said contingencies. Unity power factor is assured by the proposed controller with low current harmonic distortion satisfying limits prescribed in IEEE 519-2014. Proposed controller is implemented using TMS320LF2407 16-bit fixed-point digital signal processor. Detailed analysis of numerical format to avoid overflow of sensed variables in processor, and per-unit model implementation in software are discussed and hardware results are presented at various stages of signal conditioning to validate the experimental setup. Control logic for the generation of reference currents is implemented in TMS320LF2407A using assembly language and experimental results are also presented for the same.

Abstract

This paper presents analysis of two-level front-end converter employing current error space phasor-based hysteresis controller. In general, for such current controllers with inner and outer bands, the current error space phasor moves out of inner boundary six times in fundamental cycle for sector change detection. This deteriorates shape of line current waveform. In the proposed work, sector change detection logic is developed and implemented, which uses information of instantaneous values of three line voltages. It does not demand outer hysteresis band and lookup table to detect sector changeovers. This results in improvement in waveshape of line current. Proposed controller is also tested with different dynamic conditions like load variation, overmodulation, reverse power flow and line side variations, and the results of unity power factor and low total harmonic distortion in supply side current are presented. Conventional hysteresis controller is implemented using TMS320LF2407A DSP processor, and the results are discussed for unity power factor.

Abstract

Solid state rectification of ac power using diodes and thyristors are drawing harmonic current and reactive power from ac supply and behave as non-linear load. During unbalancing of the three-phase supply voltage causes excessive neutral current, which results in to low power factor, derating of equipment, poor efficiency and initiate triplen order harmonics. These all will raise serious issues related to power quality of the supply sys-tem. With the aim of mitigation of the same, the shunt active power filter is selected and analyzed with a synchronous reference frame control algorithm. This paper mainly focuses on the performance analysis and simulation of a shunt active power filter. The performance analysis of the filter in terms of reduction in %THD as per IEEE-519-1992 standard and unity power factor at the line side for various dynamic conditions. The proposed scheme is simulated and validated in MATLAB/Simulink environment for various steady state and dynamic condition.

Abstract

A dc-dc converter has its applications, such as in hybrid vehicles, solar inverters, in power supplies for microprocessors etc. A bidirectional dc-dc converter can be alternately operated as a step-down converter in one direction of energy flow and as a step-up converter in reverse direction of energy flow, in places where both the sides have voltage sources. A high voltage supply using a single converter is not preferred as it leads to high ripple in output voltage and current, thus requiring a large value of inductor and filter capacitor. To overcome these limitations multiphase interleaving technique is used in bidirectional dc-dc converters i.e. connecting the converters in parallel with the switching instants equally distributed among them. This paper presents a comparative study of the single phase and multiphase bi-directional dc-dc converter and the optimization of inductor and filter capacitor. The open loop simulation is done using Simulink tool and conclusions are drawn.

Abstract

The voltage source inverter (VSI) and current source inverter (CSI) have their own conceptual limitations. When operated as a dc-ac converter, the output voltage of a VSI is lesser compared to input dc voltage. On the other hand, when operated as a dc-ac converter the CSI can generate higher output voltage compared to input dc voltage. To overcome these limitations Z-source converter acts as a suitable alternative. The Z-source converter contains an impedance network connected at the dc link of the conventional 6-switch converter. This impedance network enables the Z-source inverter (ZSI) to overcome the traditional limitations in VSI and CSI. By controlling switching sequence and duty cycle through specific PWM schemes, the ZSI can produce desired output which can be above or below the input dc link voltage as per the requirement. As a result, the ZSI system provides operational capability during various practical conditions like input voltage fluctuation coupled with harmonic mitigation as well as power quality improvement capabilities. This paper dwells into the implementation of the control of ZSI on embedded target feature of MATLAB/SIMULINK for the ease of practical realization. The PWM scheme specific to ZSI requires it to use various hardware circuits for practical realization, the said problem has been addressed in this paper and hardware results of the implementation are also discussed.

Abstract

The requirement of converters is increasing with the increase in demand for the power conversion devices. For efficient power conversion, stability and time response of the system must be improved. For improving characteristics a mathematical model of the system must be determined. In this paper, an improvised state space model of full bridge converter is presented which can be used in converter design. This state-space model incorporates the non-idealities of the transformers like discharge time of primary inductance and secondary inductance as well as the wire resistance. The interdependency of the parameters affects the state space model of the converter compared to the ideal modeling. This variation in state space model of the converter has an impact on design of compensator which improves the system efficiency of the converter.

Abstract

The coordination of a large number of protective relays in an interconnected power system is a crucial task. In recent years, researchers have adopted various approaches to attain minimal discrimination time between primary and backup relay pairs for directional overcurrent relay coordination. Researchers have suggested various objective functions to overcome relay mis-coordination and to achieve optimum value of relay plug setting and time multiplier settings. This paper discusses an approach to improve the mathematical formulation for the coordination of directional overcurrent relay for an interconnected power system. Various objective functions reported in the literature are compared with the proposed objective function precisely adopting the overcurrent relay coordination philosophy. To check & analyze the robustness and suitability of the proposed objective function, a modified IEEE14-bus distribution system & IEEE 30-bus system, and IEEE8- bus system is employed. A comparative analysis of the proposed objective function and reported objective functions is presented.

Abstract

The directional overcurrent relay (DOCR) coordination is considered as a highly constrained, nonlinear, and non-convex optimization problem. In order to find the optimum solution of these problems, many extensive efforts have been kept by the researchers. The optimum solution of directional overcurrent relay which coor- dination can be obtained by choosing proper time–current characteristic of DOCR, appropriate selection of objective function, and right selection of soft computing tech- nique. This paper gives the insight into various approaches employed for DOCRs’ coordination which are as optimization method-based approach, objective function- based approach, and standard and non-standard relay characteristic-based approaches presented in the past literature. Also, this paper discusses mathematical formulation for overcurrent relay coordination.

Abstract

This paper presents investigation on electromagnetic repulsion force of contact system for enhancement in repulsion threshold current in MCCB. Current flows on moving contact and fixed contact are repulsive in nature due to structure of contact system. Due to current concentration between electrical contacts and between two conductors, magnetic flux density produces electromagnetic repulsion force. Electromagnetic repulsion force can improve current limiting ability through enhancement in repulsion threshold current of contact system is presented. For enhancing in repulsion threshold current of contact system, we calculate electromagnetic repulsion force and finite element analysis are adapted.

Abstract

It is highly essential to develop a control technique that can be applied to conventional two-level as well as high-power multilevel front-end converters (FECs). Multiaxis current controlled, unity power factor (PF), regenerative FEC is described in this article. Current error space phasor is controlled by multiaxis current monitoring and its movement is confined within the prescribed hexagonal boundary. It is shown that the needed information on sector change detection can be derived from instantaneous values of supply voltages for the two-level FECs. However, similar approach cannot be extended for three-level FECs. Hence, sector change detection technique employing additional outer hysteresis band is proposed. With the help of experimental results, for steady state and dynamic conditions of FEC, it is demonstrated that the proposed current-controlled technique is equally applicable to two-level and three-level FECs. A three-level flying capacitor topology is considered, where voltage balancing of flying capacitors is guaranteed by effective utilization of redundant switching states. Results clearly depict the power system friendly nature of the presented scheme, i.e., unity PF, low total-harmonic distortion in supply current, good load and line regulations, and capacitor voltage balancing with regenerative capability of the converter. All the schemes are implemented on OPAL-RT hardware-in-loop platform.

Abstract

The current error space phasor (CESP) based hysteresis controller employed for front-end converter requires two (inner and outer) hysteresis bands for vector selection and sector detection, respectively. As a result of this, the CESP moves out of the fixed (hexagonal) inner boundary many times in one fundamental cycle (and touches outer hysteresis band) to detect appropriate sector. This distorts the supply current waveform and increases the implementation complexity. To provide effective solution to the said issue, in this article, a fractal approach with a triangularization technique is proposed and analyzed to eliminate the outer hysteresis band and lookup table for sector change detection. The novelty proposed in this article is the integration of the fractal approach to CESP-based hysteresis controller, which reduces the complexity of the implementation of CESP-based hysteresis controller for any general multilevel front-end converter. The detailed analysis of the proposed technique for sector detections is presented considering the voltage space phasor structure of three-level and five-level converters. A generalized flowchart for any multilevel converter employing CESP-based hysteresis controller with proposed sector detection technique is developed and presented. Laboratory prototype is developed for a three-level flying capacitor front-end converter with an effective capacitor voltage balancing scheme. The experimental results are presented to validate the effectiveness of the proposed current controller in terms of unity power factor and low harmonic distortion in the line current under various practical conditions.

Current error space phase based hysteresis controller requires two (inner and outer) hysteresis bands for vector selection and for sector detection, respectively. Current error space phasor moves many times out of the fixed hexagonal boundary (and touches outer hysteresis band) in one fundamental cycle to detect appropriate sector. This distorts the supply current and increases the implementation complexity. In this paper, fractal approach and triangularization techniques are proposed and analyzed to eliminate outer hysteresis band and look-up table for sector change detection. This technique is integrated with current error space phasor based hysteresis controller to make it generalized for any multi-level front-end converter. Detailed analysis of the proposed technique for sector detections is presented considering voltage space phasor structure of three-level and five-level converters. Generalized flow chart is also developed and presented for any multi-level converter employing current error space phasor based hysteresis controller with proposed sector detection technique. Experimental results for various steady state and dynamic conditions are presented to validate the technique of sector detection, considering voltage space phasor structure of threelevel flying capacitor (FC) front-end converter.

Abstract

Multi-level inverters have found wider scope of applications in medium as well as high-power adjustable-speed drives (ASDs) due to their capability of handling high powers and power quality friendly approach. For efficient control of ASDs, indirect vector control is used which has advantages like; elimination of retrofitting of shaft encoder, faster dynamic response, and low torque pulsations. Carrier less modulation techniques (e.g., space vector pulse width modulation) provide more maximum peak fundamental output voltage in linear range of modulation for multi-level inverters. However, carrier based control schemes provide simpler control and more flexibility in operation of the control, especially for dc-link capacitor voltage balancing. This paper focuses on analyzing performance of indirect vector control of induction motor, for phase disposition type of multi-carrier technique. Steady-state as well as dynamic performance of the three-level inverter based drive is analyzed by simulation studies. For experimental validation, hardware set-up of three-level neutral point clamped inverter controlled induction motor drive is developed using Arm Cortex ST32F4 in open-loop configuration. Experimental results depicting satisfactory operation of the developed drive in steady state are presented in this paper.

Abstract

Efficient and Adaptive Artificial Neural Network (ANN) based Shunt Active Power Filter (SAPF) for mitigating harmonics is presented in the paper. ANN based reference current generation is implemented using Neural Synchronous method while Levenberg Marquardt method is used for training algorithm. ANN based Space Vector Pulse Width Modulation (ANN-SVPWM) controller is realized for the effective control of SAPF. Performance of the proposed ANN-SVPWM controller is compared with conventional Hysteresis Current Controller (HCC). Hence, both the reference compensating currents as well as controller of the proposed SAPF are realized using Artificial Neural Network. Effective compensation of the load harmonics and good dynamic response of the ANN based SAPF is proved by the presented simulation results using MATLAB. The proposed SAPF effectively compensates for the load harmonics in steady-state as well as during dynamic conditions.

Abstract

Conventional technique of eliminating current harmonics by use of passive filters suffers from drawback of series and parallel resonance within the network impedance, overcompensation of reactive power at fundamental frequency and poor flexibility. Shunt active power filters (SAPFs) are conventionally used to reduce current harmonics. The active harmonic filters introduce compensating currents into the source to mitigate the harmonics injected by the load current. The compensating currents will be derived by sensing three-phase voltages at the Point of Common Coupling (PCC) and load currents. This paper analyzes fast Fourier transform algorithm, instantaneous reactive power technique, and synchronous reference frame technique, to derive the reference compensating currents. The generated reference compensating currents act as reference for actual compensating currents for the fixed switching frequency based current controller which generates switching signals for the SAPF employing three-level T-Type Neutral Point Clamped (TNPC) topology of converter. Simulation studies for the presented SAPF is carried out using PSIM software. Hardware set-up of the presented SAPF is implemented using DSP TMS320F28377D.

Abstract

Due to low-cost and high-reliability, induction motors have discovered significant applications for variable speed applications. The vector control method is used to achieve better dynamic response and use of induction motor for a wide range of speed variations. However, it uses shaft encoder for rotor speed estimation that suffers from added cost, measurement noise, and maintenance associated with them. To overcome these shortfalls, speed is estimated with the help of measured voltages and currents in sensorless vector-controlled drive. The rotor speed estimation method is based on a direct synthesis of induction motor state equations. Simulation of the drive is carried out using PSIM software. In order to validate the method, laboratory prototype is developed using DSP TMS320C2811 for 10 H.P. and 15 H.P. squirrel cage induction motor.

Abstract

With the increasing energy power demand, optimum utilization of energy is the need of the day. Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC) because of its unique capability to control both real and reactive power has become popular device for maintaining and controlling the power system parameters. This is done by controlling voltage, line reactance and phase angle. It also facilitates loading transmission lines near their thermal limits. These abilities of UPFC make it a unique device for providing flexibility to power system operators. The application of proposed control scheme for investigating the role of UPFC in power transmission lines is studied by using Space Vector Pulse Width Modulation Technique. To explain the control and conditioning of power (both active and reactive), simulation of the system is carried out in MATLAB simulative environment. The system is studied under various steady and transient states, at various load demands. The dynamic controllability of the demand variation is also studied in the simulation environment.

Abstract

Three-level inverters are very appropriate for high-power adjustable-speed drive applications. In conventional inverter quality of voltage and current is poor it is because of presence of harmonics so, because of harmonic there is significant level of energy losses. In three level inverter harmonic content is less compare to the conventional inverter and the %THD is also less. This paper represent simulation of indirect vector control of induction motor fed by the three level inverter. In industrial application indirect vector control is wildly use. With vector control the Dynamic response of the motor is very fast, and motor can give constant torque for variable speed and variable torque for constant speed. The problem associated with conventional scalar control drive like poor dynamic response, limited speed range can be solve by this scheme. In this paper for implementation for indirect vector control fuzzy logic control technique is use. Fuzzy logic technique is very use full for the high performance speed drive.

Abstract

Renewable energy sources are becoming an integral part of existing and future grid due to their clean and sustainable nature. A gridtied renewable energy system is preferred over stand alone as it provides better utilization of generating power as they do not require an energy storage system, renewable energy sources such as Solar Cell, Fuel Cell, and Battery energy storage system need a power inverter for grid interconnection. Different pulse width modulation methods control these inverters. Sinusoidal PWM technique is commonly used where Total Harmonic Distortion is to be reduced. But, the presence of side band harmonics due to Sin-Pulse Width Modulation appearing at multiple of carrier frequency creates the problem of acoustic noise, Electromagnetic interference, and torque ripple in the associated system. An effort has been made in the present work to reduce the sideband harmonic effect by random Pulse Width Modulation techniques. The conventional random PWM method is investigated with simulation. A novel application of random carrier frequency PWM method based on the interpolated triangle wave proposed in the present work. The result shows that the proposed method gives a better harmonic spectrum and reduces Total Harmonic Distortion.

Abstract

Solar photovoltaic (SPV) has become an inalienable part of the power system due to its numerous advantages over conventional energy sources. However, SPVs can be subjected to various kinds of faults which can degrade the overall performance of the system. Machine learning (ML) techniques may be useful to identify faults occurring in photovoltaic (PV) systems. In this paper, an ML technique called random under-sampling boosting (RUSBoost) has been applied to detect the different types of faults occurring on the DC side of the PV system. A test system of 4.8 kWp has been designed in MATLAB/Simulink environment for data acquisition of different operating conditions. Commonly used performance parameters have been used as features for the ML model. Thereafter, RUSBoost has been trained using features acquired from the test system. The work also investigates the optimum number of features required for fast and accurate detection of PV array faults. It has been found that, training the model with the current ratio, voltage ratio, power ratio, and array efficiency gives the best result with 99.6% training accuracy and 2.78 s of training time. The performance of RUSBoost is further compared to popular AdaBoost and bagged tree ensemble classifier algorithm to establish the efficacy of the applied ML technique.

Abstract

The operation of photovoltaic (PV) systems, like any other system, in fault free environment ensures maximum performance. Hence, accurate and timely fault identification of PV system demands greater importance. Present investigation proposes a stacking ensemble-based PV array fault diagnosis method, which is integrated with automatic feature engineering and selection technique, handling of imbalanced dataset for unbiased classification. The proposed ensemble utilizes decision tree (DT), random forest (RF), extra trees (EXT), extreme gradient boosting machine (XGBoost) as base learners, and light gradient boosting machine (LightGBM) as both base and meta-learner. To validate the proposed technique, a test system of 4.8kWp capacity has been built using the MATLAB/Simulink environment incorporating one-year real-time irradiance and module temperature data. Irradiance, module temperature, voltage, current, and power are collected as primary raw data which are then concocted using the autofeat python library for automatic feature engineering and selection. Subsequently, the proposed fault diagnosis strategy is built in python 3.8.5 using the engineered and class label balanced dataset, prepared using the synthetic minority oversampling technique (SMOTE). Results demonstrate promising performance of the proposed ensemble technique with 97.04% accuracy in classifying the different faults in the PV array, which accounts for approximately 1–3% improvement over other individual machine learning (ML) models.

Abstract

Fast and reliable protection schemes, with accurate fault detection methodology, turn out to be one of the key endeavours in microgrids for improved operation and control strategies. Identification of fault at a very initial stage might result in rapid isolation, fault interruption, and reclosure of the faulty section. Reconfiguration of the network sections depends on the performance of the transient detection technique. In this paper, a protection application case-study for rapid fault identification, exploiting the natural frequency oscillation of a network, has been proposed for a standalone low-voltage DC-microgrid system (LV DCmG) network. The proposed method makes the use of distortion in the fault current spectrum for fault detection empirically. The rapid fault detection using suitable sampling frequency depicts the robustness of proposed approach. The proposed fault detection scheme has been corroborated for a standalone LV DCmG consisting of solar photovoltaics and energy storage devices. Wide range of test cases for fault and no-fault scenarios have been analysed and verified by shuffling different fault events (pole-ground, pole-pole), fault locations, and fault resistances. The proposed method utilizes local measurements solely which increases the admissibility of the fault detection scheme proposed in this paper. A test model has been constructed in MATLAB/ Simulink platform, and further verified on a real-time environment with OPAL-RT OP4510.

Abstract

Solar photovoltaics (SPV) are susceptible to various kinds of faults which can diminish overall performance of the system. Proper fault diagnosis strategy needs to be developed to accurately identify the faults for smooth operation of the photovoltaic (PV) systems. Machine learning (ML) can be used to diagnose the faults in PV arrays. In this paper, three powerful machine learning algorithms i.e., categorical boosting (CatBoost), light gradient boosting method (LGBM), and extreme gradient boosting (XGBoost) have been selected for investigating their efficacy to diagnose different PV array faults. A PV system has been designed in MATLAB/Simulink environment using real time irradiance and temperature data acquired from grid connected PV System of National Institute of Technology Agartala. The constructed dataset is used to extract features including one new index to train these algorithms in Python 3.7. Promising results have been achieved using these algorithms as average detection and classification accuracy of 99.996% and 99.745% has been noted by implementing LGBM, followed by CatBoost, and XGBoost respectively. Moreover, these algorithms reduce the computational time significantly with LGBM leading the chart with training time of 0.053 and 0.375 s for fault detection and classification. These algorithms have been compared with random forest (RF) technique to exhibit their proficiency in fault diagnosis of PV arrays.

Abstract

DC microgrids (DCMGs) are gaining popularity mainly in shipboards and isolated power systems for their modest control and higher efficiency. However, the newer conception and less literature are forcing the operators to take up tough challenges for smoother operation of the overall system. Protection areas of DCMGs are still immature because of the inexperience of handling DC faults and less availability of DC circuit breakers (DCCBs) in outsized range. In this work, the fault detection and classification issue in low-voltage-DC-microgrid (LVDCMG) has been solved with a bilayered machine learning scheme based on weighted K-nearest neighbor (WKNN) and decision tree (DT). WKNN accurately detects the fault in the line, and DT classifies the fault as PG or PP for further corrective measures. The developed technique has been implemented in an LVDCMG with PV and battery energy sources. Voltage and current measurements from the network have been used as training samples to the classifier models. It has been noticed that the proposed bilayered protection scheme is giving 100% detection accuracy. The outcome of the proposed structure seems to be promising and has been compared with some of the existing machine learning (ML)-based fault detection techniques for microgrids (MGs).

Abstract

Appropriate placement of synchrophasor meters will save huge capital investment and give improved wide area monitoring, control, and protection. Being costly and having flexible channel capacity, the synchrophasor meters should be placed judiciously in the network to avoid unnecessary expenses. In this paper, the practical cost assessment of phasor measurement unit (PMU) placement has been done for different placement strategies considering different network contingencies for the first time. Cost study has further been investigated for the placement strategies in the presence/absence of dual-use line relays (DULRs). Different combinations of synchrophasor measurement meters (PMU and DULR) along with channel limitation property of the meters have been utilized to minimize the cost of observability. Modified Binary Symbiotic Organisms Search (MBSOS) has been used for the first time to solve the optimal PMU placement (OPP) problem. The simulated results show that the proposed method can give techno-economical solutions for various synchrophasor meter placement (SMP) strategies.

Abstract

Continuous monitoring is the prerequisite for secure operation and efficient control of power system. This paper presents a new and straightforward approach to monitor the system efficiently. Optimal PMU placement (OPP) deals with the complete system observability with a minimum number of PMU. The Modified Graph theoretic configuration has been presented here to select some strategic locations for PMU installation. Initially, a new technique has been used here to form spanning tree from its system graph. Some standard bus systems i.e. IEEE 7-bus, IEEE 14-bus, and 30-bus have been used to test the effectiveness of the applied approach. The proposed approach has been carried out for normal operating conditions (NOC) as well as considering Zero Injection Bus (ZIB) effects. The simulation result of this efficient and state forward approach has been compared with some other established approaches.

Abstract

Microgrid is widely known for its reliability, robustness, and assimilation of renewable energy resources. A standalone microgrid is a good solution for the electrification of remote places. In this paper, a smart standalone microgrid system has been designed optimally. Demand side management (DSM) has been performed to manage the elastic loads considering the contributions of inelastic loads associated with this microgrid for economic operation. The optimal sizes of solar PV, wind turbine, diesel generator, battery energy storage (BES), and converter of this microgrid system have been decided using HOMER software. In the past few years, the transportation sector is shifting towards electric vehicle (EV) to reduce pollution. Therefore, the penetration of EV in microgrid has been considered for this work too. Two different DSM schemes have been proposed and compared in terms of microgrid's planning. Evolutionary based optimization techniques have been employed to solve the DSM problem.

Abstract

The demand response (DR) is one of the best possible solutions to reduce peak demand and energy consumption in the modern power system. The DR is also beneficial for energy management systems to balance, shift, and monitor the imperative equipment which depends on electricity price exposed by the utility company. This paper proposes a method to minimize the peak load through price weight given by the utility company. Three types of consumers have been considered for the study as residential, industrial, and commercial for the optimization model. The `per day electricity use' for these consumers can be reduced by scheduling the elastic loads. Two soft-computing techniques, Symbiotic Organism Search (SOS) and Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO), have been designed to solve the scheduling problem. The outcome of SOS and PSO has been compared with the existing popular meta-heuristic technique, Genetic Algorithm (GA). The simulation results show that the recommended algorithm reduces cost while balancing the peak demand.

Abstract

In this paper, an efficient and robust fuzzy logic controller (FLC) has been advocated for improved power management in islanded DC microgrids (μGs). The proposed scheme has been verified in a standalone DC μG with a renewable energy source (RES), a battery-based energy storage system (BESS), loads, and a bi-directional converter. The main object of this work is to sketch a commendatory FLC for controlling the power continuously and efficiently under changing solar irradiances. On the basis of the rules of the FLC, the switching signals will be produced to control the bidirectional converter. IF-THEN rules based inferencing have been formed to cover almost all the possible operating scenarios for the DC microgrid. The proposed model has been built in MATLAB/Simulink environment and it has been observed that the uniform power control is achieved with the proposed FLC than without FLC cases.

Abstract

Microgrids are becoming a prevalent part of the grid due to its’ numerous advantages on energy management system. Microgrids are perceived as the gate way for systematic inclusion of multiple renewable based distributed generations. One of the key concerns for these types of microgrids is detection of absence of the grid. This paper demonstrates a dual use line relay (DULR) based passive detection technique which uses an intelligent electronic device (IED) platform to confirm the islanding condition. Bagged tree ensemble classifier based on synchrophasor measurements has been used in IED as a decision making algorithm. Assorted range of non-islanding and islanding state of affairs have been considered to train the classifier. The measurements obtained from DULR can be used for further analysis at any level of the smart-grid communication hierarchy. The proposed scheme has been seen as fast, effective, economic, and having zero non-detection zone, compared to some of the existing techniques.

Abstract

Small and large disturbances in power system may sometimes lead to sustained oscillation in three-phase power, often termed as ‘power swing’ in the literature. Power swing is a balanced phenomenon and may be indistinguishable from a three-phase fault. Transmission lines being protected by distance relays may be incorrectly de-energized because of a power swing. So, three-phase faults should be discriminated from power swing with high reliability and dependability. In this study, a novel symmetrical fault detection technique has been proposed with dual use line relays for the first time. The proposed algorithm has been verified for a large number of fault scenarios including series compensated lines with single machine infinite bus and western system coordinating council-9 bus system. It has been seen that the proposed algorithm is giving fast detection of three-phase faults during power swing with high accuracy.

Abstract

Faster fault detection and location has become one of the prime assignments in microgrids for better control strategies. Quick identification of fault may result in location estimation tougher due to insufficient measurement data. In this article, a better scheme for fault detection and a novel method for the location of fault with good accuracy are portrayed. The speed and cost-effectiveness of the proposed scheme has been assured due to less sampling frequency. The proposed method is developed for a standalone low voltage DC (LVDC) system with photovoltaics and battery energy storage system. A large number of fault scenarios have been simulated and analyzed by varying faults (pole-pole, pole-ground), fault resistance, and locations. The proposed scheme deals with local measurements that heartens the easy implementation of the proposed method. The case studies have been simulated in MATLAB/ SIMULINK environment. The efficacy of the proposed protection scheme is further validated in a real-time environment.

Abstract

Shrill power swing due to various electrical disturbances may lead to malfunctioning in distance relay and intimidating stress on the power system equipment. If fault occurs during power swing that is more dangerous and should be detected as early as possible for secure and stable operation of the power system. The power swing blocking (PSB) and de-blocking (PSD) functions are essentially kept in the distance relays to address this issue. In this paper, a novel approach has been proposed with dual use line relay (DULR) to discriminate faults from power swing and thus improving PSD function. The proposed method is investigated for fast and slow power swing, various faults with a wide range of fault resistances (), power angle variations, various levels of compensation, large load rejections, asymmetrical swings, and close in-far end faults. The robustness of the proposed algorithm has been confirmed by performing a large number of simulations on single machine infinite bus (SMIB) and WSCC 9-bus systems. It has been perceived that the proposed method is giving better results with improved PSD functions than the existing methods for fault detection during power swing.

Abstract

ncreasing power demand, penetration of renewables, and limitations of necessary grid expansion are proffering new challenges to existing power system protection and control strategies. However, with the advancement in intelligent electronic devices and relaying technology, fast, accurate and reliable protection schemes can be developed for smart power systems. In this paper, a new protection scheme based on admittance and power change has been proposed with dual-use line relays to detect symmetrical/asymmetrical faults in power systems. A large number of fault environments have been simulated by varying fault distances from relay location, fault resistance, and power angle in single machine infinite bus and WSCC 9-bus systems. Some crucial decisive fault scenarios e.g. close in/far end faults, faults in series compensated line, faults during asymmetrical swings, switching ON/OFF large loads, single and multi-modal swings have also been verified for the proposed index. In this paper, for the first time, detection of faults during power swings have been examined and verified in the presence of wind farms. The simulation results show the proficiency of the proposed algorithm for detecting faults in the presence or absence of power swings.

Abstract

Complex control strategies, fickle loads, and penetration of renewables in modern power system are introducing new challenges for power system protection schemes. However, the progression of the Intelligent Devices (IDs) fast, accurate, and reliable relaying schemes can be developed which can successfully solve the critical relaying problems. Here, a fast relaying scheme has been developed with the Phasor Measurement Unit (PMU) which can detect symmetrical/asymmetrical faults under various fault environments. The proposed index deals with exponential change in the rate of change of positive sequence voltage magnitude. The proposed technique has been tested with the SMIB system for an outsized number of fault scenarios which includes variations in power angle, fault resistance, and fault distance from the relay location. The proposed algorithm has also been tested for series compensated lines and noisy signals. The proposed protection scheme has been modelled and simulated in EMTDC/PSCAD software. The outcome of the simulated case studies confirms satisfactory rendition of the proposed method.

Abstract

Modern power system operates in stressed conditions due to fickle loads, high penetration of renewables, and complex control strategies. The failure of any power system asset may lead to protract power interruption or even catastrophic failures. Synchrophasor-based extensive research advancements in wide area measurement, protection, and control (WAMPAC) systems are solving critical operation and control problems of the power system. This paper proposes a new combinatorial methodology for monitoring the prime power system components in preference to complete observability of the system. A multicriteria decision support (MCDS) approach, analytical hierarchy process (AHP), has been used to prepare a ranking according to component bus priority for synchrophasor measurement unit installation. The priority list is further processed with intelligent search technique (IST) to compute the optimal solution for synchrophasor meter placement, ensuring complete observability, maximum measurement redundancy, and coverage of prime system components with direct monitoring. Some practical contingencies related to synchrophasor meters placement problem like single meter loss or line outage have also been considered for the case studies. The efficiency of the proposed method has been verified with IEEE 14-bus, 24-bus, 30-bus, 57-bus, and 118-bus and New England 39-bus test systems. To prove the superiority of the method, in essence of synchrophasor meter placement problems, the outcome has been compared with some of the existing methods from the literature.

Abstract

Serious impact of catastrophic failure on the power system is demanding one-step-ahead predictive measures in order to save the system. In this paper, a new index-based algorithm is proposed for prediction of the catastrophic failures due to line contingencies at a very premature stage. Offline case studies show that proposed catastrophic failure index (CFI) is proficient in forecasting the possibility of occurrence of the catastrophic failure with a minimum number of contingencies. Proposed CFI can be calculated online from the data available from phasor measurement units. The proposed index is also capable of identifying the most serious contingencies and can be a good indicator for impending blackout caused by multiple faults/contingencies. The proposed methodology has been tested with IEEE 30-bus system to validate the performance.

Abstract

Variations in impedance at the relaying point due to deviations in three phase power may lead to malfunctioning in distance relays. The relay can’t discriminate faults from swing due to symmetry in waveforms of a balanced fault and power swing. Inappropriate Power swing blocking (PSB) and de-blocking (PSD) functioning in distance relay may worsen the situation by tripping a healthy line which further causes brownout or complete blackout in the system. In this research paper, a unique technique has been proposed with rate of percentage change of positive sequence current which turns out to be very expedient in detecting symmetrical faults in presence of power swing. To verify the scheme, it has been applied to single machine infinite bus (SMIB) and western system coordinating council (WSCC) 9-bus system. A large number of fault environments have been created by varying the fault resistance, location of the fault, power angle, and swing type. The case studies have further been extended for close in/far end faults, series compensated lines, and large load rejections. The outcomes of the simulated studies provide satisfactory performance in detecting balanced faults during power swing.

Abstract

Reliable and precise monitoring of large power network can be assured with Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs). Optimal placement of PMU entrusts judicial investment in costly infrastructural support of synchrophasor measurement. This paper proposes a new method for solving optimal PMU placement (OPP) problem with maximum measurement redundancy and channel limitation constraint. The proposed method uses Binary Symbiotic Organism Search (BSOS) which has not been cited in literature before. The work is further extended to capital cost investigation for maximum measurement redundancy and channel limitation cases. Four standard IEEE test systems have been considered to underpin the proposed scheme. For worthy validation of the proposed OPP scheme, a comparative assessment has been drawn with some of the other existing methods from the literature. The proposed methodology can give efficient cost concerned OPP solution for the small as well as large-scale power system network with and without considering channel limitation.

Abstract

The dynamic changes in the power system may lead to severe power swing resulting in sustained oscillation in impedance seen by the distance relay. Malfunctioning of the relays in response to these events may trigger catastrophic failure which is utmost detrimental for power system stakeholders. Fast and accurate isolation of faulty circuit is one of the prime necessities to save the system from blackouts and maintain the system stability. In this paper, a novel exponential change of admittance based fault discrimination index (FDI) is proposed to detect all types of faults (symmetrical/ asymmetrical) during power swing. The proposed algorithm can be included in dual-use line relay (DULR) to have fast and accurate detection of the fault in presence of power swing. The proposed index has been tested with single machine infinite bus (SMIB) and WSCC 9-bus system for a large range of fault environment including variations in fault resistance (R f ), the distance of fault from relay location, power angle, and swing type (fast/slow). To prove the robustness of the index the response of the FDI in case of large load rejections and faults in series compensated lines has also been investigated. The simulated results confirm the proficiency of the proposed algorithm in detecting faults during power swing.

Abstract

This has become essential to analyse the impact of a particular generator on the power system in deregulated power environment. The use of power tracing methods can solve this issue and able to detect the exact contribution of a generator to loads or line losses. In this paper, the active power tracing has been done in the distribution system for the first time. The power tracing has been done using the upstream looking algorithm. The algorithm is based on the famous `proportional sharing principle' (PSP). The proposed approach has been verified with IEEE 33-bus and 85-bus distribution test systems. The case studies have been extended to assess the flow of active power without and with Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) in power system. All the simulations have been done in MATLAB environment. The proposed approach gives promising results which will be helpful for better analysis of existing tariffs for transmission loss and services.

Abstract

The Phasor Measurement Units (PMU) being a prime component of wide-area monitoring system (WAMS) helps in numerous ways for proper supervision and control of power system. The infrastructure of synchrophasor measurement is costly and needs suitable planning before deployment. This paper investigates for a cost effective solution for synchrophasor infrastructure with PMUs and dual use line relays (DULR). To solve the optimal PMU placement (OPP) problem a new approach Binary Symbiotic Organism Search (BSOS) has been proposed that assures the maximum measurement redundancy too. The proposed BSOS has been also extended to find OPP solution considering measurement channel limitation of PMUs. The proposed binary structure has not been implemented before to solve OPP problems. The realistic cost studies with PMU and DULR for different combinations have been evaluated with IEEE 14-bus, 30-bus, and 118-bus test systems. This paper proposes a techno-economical solution for real-world OPP problems.

Abstract

This paper proposes a hybrid method for optimal PMU placement (OPP) using the graph theoretic approach and Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP). Three effective criteria have been chosen from the network graph model to form a decision matrix for AHP. Then AHP does vertex ranking and edge ranking. The spanning tree has been formed from the parent graph according to the edge ranking. Some strategic locations have been identified from the spanning tree for PMU placement. The proposed method has been tested for IEEE 14-bus, 24-bus, 30-bus, 57-bus, 118-bus and New England 39-bus test systems. The proposed method successfully provide optimal PMU placement for complete observability of the systems studied. PMU placement obtained by the proposed method has been compared with the solution of the some other existing methods for the solution of OPP. The proposed method is found suitable and easy to implement.

Abstract

Phasor Measurement Devices (PMU) continuously provides the time-synchronized measurements of a power system by using signals from Global Positioning System (GPS). These accurate measurements help in the field of security, protection and control study of a power system. This paper presents a novel technique to monitor the distribution system by using micro-PMU. Optimal PMU placement problem has been solved by using graph-theoretic approaches. Initially, a given test system is converted to a graph model. Typically, spanning tree contains two types of vertex-pendant vertex and cut vertex. Primarily, some strategic locations have been indicated for PMU placements according to the positions of pendant vertices and cut vertices. Finally, a specific technique has been followed to make the system completely observable. IEEE 13-node, 34-node, and 37-node test feeders have been used to check the efficacy of the proposed technique. The outcome of the proposed technique is compared with some other methods.

Abstract

In this study, a new method using graph theory and analytical hierarchy process (AHP)-based multi-criteria decision making approach has been proposed to solve optimal phasor measurement unit (PMU) placement (OPP) problem for complete network observability. The proposed approach assures maximum measurement redundancy too. A decision matrix is formed with some unique criteria from the concept of network graph theory and this helps to formulate priority vertex ranking using AHP. Candidate vertex search technique is used to enumerate the candidate PMU placement vertices from priority vertex ranking. The contribution of zero injection buses (ZIBs) in PMU placement problem has been considered. The proposed technique is further analysed for complete observability under single PMU loss or line outage cases. The proposed approach is tested on IEEE 14-bus, 24-bus, 30-bus, 57-bus, 118-bus, and New England 39-bus systems. To verify the computational efficiency and higher redundancy of solutions of the proposed method, the results are compared with some well-established methods reported in the literature. The proposed method is further applied to IEEE 300-bus, Polish 2383-bus and 3120-bus system to show the efficacy of the proposed approach in solving OPP in large scale power systems.

Abstract

The conventional power system is adopting the concept of the smart grid by integrating intelligent control system, advanced communication network and green energy resources. Penetration of renewables is increasing the fault current level of the system. Conventional protection elements are unable to suppress the fault current rapidly. The superconducting fault current limiters (SFCL) are perceived to be very useful in this regard. SFCL is having a very fast response and its high nonlinear characteristics help to limit high fault current. In this work, some unique case studies have been carried out with resistive-SFCL. The proposed model of resistive-SFCL can be easily employed to limit high fault currents in multifarious smart grid systems. The power system model considered here is a practical Indian grid system with generation, transmission, and distribution facility. To reflect the performance of resistive-SFCL in micro-grid environment one wind farm of 12 MVA capacities is considered as a distributed generation resource. To analyze the performance in detail of resistive-SFCL, different faults have been considered at different locations in presence of wind farm. Strategic locations of resistive-SFCL have been considered according to network protection priority. The simulation results obtained from different case studies are reliable and satisfactory.

Abstract

Modern world smart grid is a combination of a reliable communication network, robust central generation and strategic commanded Distributed Generations (DG). Ungoverned penetration of DG to balance inflationist load will encourage grid instability. This paper proposes a modest methodology to analyse the transient stability of the electrical network with distributed generation and its effect on other important aspects like voltage stability, overall loss minimization, economic benefits, short circuit capacity, power quality and reliability of power system. The possible events have been simulated with 33 bus radial distributed system. The case studies have been extended to single and multi DG environment. ETAP 7.5 and MATLAB v10 have been used for simulation of case studies. Simulation results validate the promising outcome of this work.

Abstract

In the smart grid, the monitoring and estimation of the power grid states are essential factors for real-time operation and control. In this regard, a wide area measurement system (WAMS) needs to be developed, wherein the phasor measurement units (PMUs) and communication infrastructure (CI) are the essential components. To achieve the economical design of WAMS, PMUs need to be placed optimally, so that with minimal cost, the complete system observability is ensured. In addition, the cost of CI, to connect all the PMUs, needs to be considered during the economical design of WAMS. Hence, in this work, the simultaneous optimization of PMUs and CI cost has been considered as the objective, whereas the complete system observability has been considered as the constraint. The consequence of zero injection buses (ZIBs) on the economic design of WAMS has also been considered. In addition, the effect of N−1 contingency, pre-installed fiber optic, and pre-installed PMUs have also been simulated. In this work, a new Steiner tree-based approach has been proposed for securing economical design of CI. The swarm intelligence-based binary dragonfly algorithm (BDA) has been adopted for optimization of considered problem. To showcase the effectiveness of the proposed approach, it has been simulated on the IEEE 14, 30, and 118 bus standard test systems. The comparative analysis has also been presented, and it clearly indicates the effectiveness of the proposed approach compared with other reported methods.

Abstract

Performance enhancement of permanent magnet brushless dc motor during design is highly desirable. With the application of superior magnetic material Hiperco in place of traditional magnetic material M19 silicon steel, the performance of the permanent magnet brushless dc motor (PMBLDC) can be greatly improved. Compared to standard silicon steel material the Hiperco magnetic material has high allowable flux density, high permeability and low specific iron loss. This paper presents the use of Hiperco magnetic material for the stator core of PMBLDC motor. The 200 W, 24 V radial flux PMBLDC motor is designed analytically and modelled in finite element analysis (FEA) software. The initial design incorporates use of M19 – 29 Ga Cold Rolled Non Oriented (CRNO) silicon steel material for the stator core. The initial design is validated using finite element analysis. In improved design, the conventional stator core material is replaced by Hiperco magnetic material and effect of Hiperco on the efficiency of the PMBLDC motor is analyzed. The improved model with the application of Hiperco is analyzed with FEA technique. It is analyzed that efficiency of PMBLDC motor is considerably improved with application of Hiperco.
