Analysis and Suppression Strategy of Sub-synchronous Oscillation for Wind-Thermal-Bundled Power Transmitted by Series-Compensated System

Large-capacity wind farms may increase the risk of torsional vibration of turbine generator shafts in the wind-thermal-bundled power transmitted by series-compensated system, therefore the analysis and suppression strategy of sub-synchronous oscillation (SSO) in such system needs to be thoroughly studied. In this paper, the mechanism of electromechanical torsional interaction and the influence of wind farm integration on system oscillation are analyzed. In order to suppress the SSO, the mechanism of electromagnetic torque increment produced by additional damping control of static synchronous compensator (STATCOM) is studies, based on which, a SSO damping controller is designed. Based on the complex torque coefficient approach and time domain simulation approach simulation cases are built in DIgSILENT/PowerFactory. The results show the impact of wind farm integration and series compensation degree on system damping and verify the suppression effect of STATCOM on system SSO.

Analysis on the Characteristics of 2016 Wind Damage Trips of Power Grid in China’s Major Areas

Wind damage is one of the common disaster that has serious influence on China’s power grid. The wind damage has a wide distribution and a low success rate of reclose, which makes the transmission line outage more likely. In this study, it is found that the 2016 wind damage of power grid in China’s major areas mainly distributed in the southeastern coast, southwest region, north China and its surrounding areas. In temporal distributions, wind damage mainly occurs in summer and afternoon. In 2016, the first reclose success rate of wind damage trip is only about 10% during 330 kV and above voltage level transmission lines. 220 kV is a voltage level threshold of trip line: tripps number increases with voltage level decreases when above the threshold, otherwise trips number decreases with voltage level decreases. Transmission line wind damage trip trend has a large interannual variation from 2010 to 2016. This study analyzes the characteristics of wind damage trips in 2016, which provides guidance for wind damage prevention work in windbreak-prone areas and windbreak-prone periods.

The wind power and load are both affected by the meteorological factors. Studying on the correlation between wind power and load in different weather conditions is beneficial to reduce the double uncertainties on the sides of source and load, and significant to the planning, dispatching, safe and stable operation of the electric power system. First, the improved algorithm of traditional K-means clustering algorithm—X-means is adopted to divide the daily meteorological factors of wind speed and temperature, which mainly affect the wind power and load. Then, the Pearson, Kendall and Spearman correlation coefficients are used to analyze the correlation between wind power and load variables in different weather conditions. Finally, the optimal Copula function is selected from four commonly-used Copula functions to describe the joint distribution of wind power and load in each weather condition. Furthermore, the data in another place is used to verify the correlation between wind power and load with the weather condition. The conclusions are as follows: (1) the X-means algorithm can realize the effective classification of weather conditions. (2) The positive correlation between wind power and load is mainly concentrated in summer or near summer, the negative correlation between them is mainly concentrated in winter or near winter. (3) The correlation between wind power and load is quite varying in different weather conditions, but the joint distributions are basically consistent with the Archimedes Copula functions, and the tail correlation coefficients of their distribution are zero under most weather conditions. (4) There is a repeated rule between wind power and load with the weather condition.

The wind power can be converted into heat energy by air source heat pumps so that improve the consumption of wind power when the wind curtailment is serious. The heat generated is used to provide system heat. The excess of heat can be stored in the thermal storage energy devices, which released to provide system heat at low troughs. Finally, the comparison between the examples shows that air source heat pumps not only can quickly respond to the change of wind power, but also have low operation cost and reduce system power generation cost .

A Chromatographic Recognition Algorithm Based on Adaptive Threshold in Substation

According to the requirement of gas chromatography identification in transformer oil of substation, an adaptive threshold chromatographic identification algorithm is designed. Traditional first derivative method only uses slope threshold to recognize chromatographic peaks, so the degree of automation is low and it is easy to be distorted. In view of these shortcomings, this paper improves the first derivative method. Based on the data pre-processing and peak identification algorithm, the appropriate threshold is determined, and the peaks are identified by combining the peak curves and the characteristics of the standard gas. Since the threshold parameter of the algorithm can be fixed, the overlapping peak detection is less affected by human influence, and further improves the accuracy of chromatographic identification.

Insensitivity of Fiber-Optic Current Transducer to Vibration

The traditional fiber optical current transformer uses Y-branch waveguide modulator. However, Y-branch waveguide modulator produces abnormal noise current when it is subjected to vibration stress caused by the double-arm optical structure between the modulator and the coupler. In this paper, a new optical structure using reflective waveguide modulator is proposed because it has ability to eliminate the additional phase difference caused by vibration stress. Both results of laboratory and substation prove that reflective waveguide modulator can not only effectively reduce the impact of environmental stress on fiber optical current transformer, but also can eliminate the abnormal current caused by circuit breaker switching vibration. This study provides a new way of thinking and direction for the design and manufacture of high performance current transformer applying to high voltage and large current measurement field.

To improve the reliability of power supply, medium and low voltage distribution network always uses small current neural grounding in China. When the single phase to ground fault occurs, the fault feature is weak and fault section is hard to locate by traditional method. The development of distribution level phasor measurement units (D-PMUs) makes the visual and precise synchronous data available. In this paper, a new fault section location method based on Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) is proposed. The data cross-section is the input characteristic matrix of CNN model corresponding to the snapshot of the synchronous measurements of multi D-PMUs at a specific time, including current and voltage phasor. And the fault section and confidence of results would be given by the trained three-layer CNN model. This method only requires the snapshot data of single moment in the steady fault stage, so it is not affected by the fault initial phase angle and is robust to the noise and data loss or corruption. The accuracy, anti-interference capacity, and effectiveness of proposed method had been tested on a 20-node distribution network with distributed generation in PSCAD.

State-of-the-art Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) has superior performances on float-pointing calculation and memory bandwidth, and therefore has great potential in many computationally intensive power system applications, one of which is batch-Electromechanical transient time simulation (ETTS) of power system.

Optimization of Post-disaster Rush Repair Strategy for Distribution Network Considering Network Reconfiguration

Natural disasters (such as snowstorms, typhoons, etc.) can result in a large number of physical failures in distribution network. Optimizing the rush repair strategy of physical failures in post-disaster restoration can reduce economic loss and accelerate the restoration process. In current research, the optimization of repair path and strategy for a single repair team is studied, while the complexity of rush repair and the travel cost are not fully considered, and the effect of tie lines in restoration cannot be ignored. Therefore, an optimization of rush repair strategy method is established in this paper considering the combined action of repair teams, tie lines and the dynamic change of the repair strategy caused by network reconfiguration. With the objective of minimizing the total loss during the restoration, the status of repair teams, failures and tie lines are employed as decision variables. Next, the rush repair model is solved through a two-layer solution strategy. Simulated Annealing Algorithm and Genetic Algorithm are adopted respectively to solve the two layers. So that, the best rush repair strategy can be obtained. Finally, the efficiency of the proposed approach is demonstrated by testing on PG&E 69 node system.

Study on Distribution Voltage of Deteriorated Insulator Based on Finite Element Method

Under the long-term influence of electrical load and natural environmental factors, the insulation performance of the insulator will gradually decrease, and deteriorated insulators with different degrees of deterioration will appear in the insulator string. The presence of degraded insulators can pose a significant risk to the safe operation of the power system. In order to study the influence of insulators with different degradation degrees on the voltage distribution of insulator strings in 500 kV transmission lines, this paper studies the distribution voltages of different positions, different numbers and different degraded insulators in 500 kV transmission line insulator strings based on finite element method. The simulation results show that the voltage drop of the insulator with a lighter degree of degradation is very low, and it is more difficult to identify by the distributed voltage. The deteriorated insulator has a certain lifting effect on the voltage of its adjacent insulator. Finally, the effects of different degrees of deteriorated insulators on the voltage distribution are studied by experiments. The conclusions are consistent with the simulation results.

Power-over-fiber (POF) technique is a commonly way to transmit power externally into the low-power remote modules in specific distributed measurement systems. This paper briefly analyzes the technical characteristics and application limitations of different implementations of In-band communication used in the POF system. Based on the analysis of the characteristics of key components such as laser diode (LD) and photoelectric converter (PPC), this paper proposes a closed-loop digital modulation method that takes the characteristics of photovoltaic voltage signals as feedback to control the drive current of LDs, and then the In-band communication link over the power supply fiber can be established. After that, this paper explains the architecture design, control circuit, feed-back demodulation design and closed-loop control software design of the POF system with In-band downlink capability. The specific test verifies that the proto-type realizes the downlink communication in POF system at 1 Mbps rate between the host and remote module which runs in industrial temperature environment. The method can meet the communication requirements of parameter configuration, sampling calibration and other functions in the industrial distributed measurement system.

Computation of the Three-Dimensional Electric Field Using Particle Swarm Optimization Charge Simulation Method

In this paper, particle swarm optimization (PSO) and charge simulation method (CSM) are combined to calculate the three-dimensional electric field of sphere-plane electrode, rod-plane electrode and simplified high-voltage insulator string. The optimization variable of PSO is the coordinate or charge quantity of the simulation charge, and the fitness function is the potential error of the matching point. In the calculation of the sphere-plane electrode, the calculation results verify the effectiveness of PSOCSM; the comparison with GACSM highlights the advantages of short calculation time and high precision of PSOCSM. In the calculation of the rod-plane electrode, a method to reduce the optimization variables of PSO is proposed to further improve the computational accuracy and optimization efficiency of PSOCSM. In the calculation of the rod-plane electrode and the high voltage insulator string, the comparison results of GACSM and PSOCSM reflect the excellent optimization performance of PSO. The research results provide a new calculation method for electric field calculation of high voltage electrical appliances.

Automatic Detection of Environmental Change in Transmission Channel Based on Satellite Remote Sensing and Deep Learning

The detection of environmental change in transmission channel based on high-resolution satellite remote sensing is the emerging trend in the operation and maintenance of power grid. To improve the precision, a change detection method based on the deep learning was put forward in this paper. Firstly, by the improved change vector analysis algorithm and grey level co-occurrence matrix considering the neighborhood information, the spectral and texture changes of images at different times were calculated. Moreover, the most probably changed and unchanged zone samples were extracted through setting the adaptive sampling interval. Additionally, the modified deep convolutional neural network model Inception-v3 was constructed and trained. The in-depth features in changed and unchanged zone were extracted, and the changed zone was distinguished effectively. The results showed that the proposed method could effectively extract the environmental change in transmission channel, and the accuracy reached over 92.5%, which was obviously superior to the contrast methods.

A Spectrum Correction Approach for Power System Sub-harmonic Analysis

Parameters identification of power system inter-harmonic is research emphasis recently, because it can be seriously interfered by nearby harmonic leakage. The sub-harmonic lower than power frequency is not only disturbed by power frequency component, but also interfered by negative frequency component itself. A variety of analytical methods are used for acquiring the parameters of the signal but difficult to eliminate various confounding factors adequately. Therefore, as sub-harmonic component can be interfered by both negative frequency component and power frequency component, an improved low frequency spectrum correction model was established, and different frequencies of sub-harmonics were analyzed with scanning way. Simulation results show that the proposed method for identification of sub-harmonic parameters has higher accuracy, small computation and is easy for project implementation.

It is essential to calculate the height of lightning rods in order to make them function efficiently. But sometimes the calculation can be complex. In order to calculate the heights of lightning rods, we follow the principle of “Centering on the axis line and firstly focus on the upper level”. With the help of tools like Borland C++ Builder, a computing software for calculating the height of lightning rods was designed, and it can cover the calculations of the height(s) of one single lightning rod; two lightning rods of the same height; and two lightning rods with different heights, using polygon method. It can also deal with the calculation of the height of one single lightning rod using rolling ball method. The main points of the calculation, the main program code of the software and several examples are shown in the paper. After comparison and verification, the results given by the software are reliable. The use of the software can greatly reduce the burden of calculation during the design of lightning rods.

Super-Resolution Reconstruction of Fine-Grained Fittings Image of Transmission Line Based on Compressed Sensing

The abstract should summarize the contents of the paper in short terms, i.e. 150–250 words. Aiming at the low resolution problem of fine-grained fittings image of trans-mission line, an image super-resolution reconstruction algorithm based on compressed sensing is proposed. The K-SVD (K-Singular Value Decomposition) algorithm is used to implement sparse representation according to the theory of compressed sensing. The reconstruction is performed by OMP (Orthogonal Matching Pursuit) algorithm. The proposed algorithm has good de-noising effect and shortened processing time. The fine-grained fit-tings image that has correlation with the reconstructed image is trained to enhance the reconstruction effect and is used for high-quality recovery of the fine-grained fittings image of the transmission line. The simulation results verify the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm, and the reconstructed image has a better improvement in subjective visual effects and objective evaluation indicators.

Design and Implementation of Centralized Operation and Hierarchical Management System for Substations

The existing work of operation and maintenance for substations is mainly realized by manual on-site inspection. It is repeated and cumbersome, and costs lots of time. With the rapid growth of the number of substations, the increase in the number of operation and maintenance personnel cannot keep up with the development speed of the power grid equipment, which brings great work pressure to the operation and maintenance of substations. In order to solve the problem, this paper proposes a design and implementation method of centralized operation and hierarchical management system for substations. The system collects the information in the substations and sends it to the center, and combines the information collected by the center and then sends it to the upper center to achieve the goal of centralized operation and hierarchical management for substations. The system has been used in practical applications and it greatly reduces the load and time of operation and maintenance work. It improves the management level of substation operation and maintenance and makes it more scientific, standardized and reasonable.
