    The impact of uncontrolled charging of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) on distribution networks is investigated using a probabilistic approach based on Monte Carlo simulations. A model simulating daily residential and commercial electrical demand estimates the existing demand on the networks. A PEV operator model simulates the actions of drivers throughout a typical day to estimate the demand for... View full abstract»

    Modern digital metering technology and advances in power definition theory have made it possible to produce revenue meters that measure the correct quantities even in non-sinusoidal conditions. These developments are reflected in the designs of several metering integrated circuits and in the IEEE 1459-2000 power definitions standard. These advances now need to be included in metering standards and... View full abstract»

    Flux-coupling type SFCL which is made up of a series transformer and a superconducting current limiting device has good limiting and recovery characteristics at sudden short circuit fault. Since flux-coupling type SFCL has good property to improve the transient stability of power system, accurate serving of transient operation considering hysteresis phenomenon is very crucial. In this paper, theor... View full abstract»

    In times of an ageing power grid in many developed countries and large shares of non-grid-connected areas in developing countries, alternatives to the conventional power infrastructure of centralized generation and grid distributed power become ever more important. Using locally available energy carriers for micro-scale decentralized generation could provide both energy self-sufficiency and securi... View full abstract»

    This paper investigates the relationship between the impedance matching and the maximum power transfer problems. First, a network reduction and equivalent technique is presented and a ¿decoupled¿ equivalent network is obtained for every load bus. Second, a special form of impedance matching condition is derived for the maximum power transfer problem with an unlimited load variation pattern. Thir... View full abstract»

    This paper discusses the interconnection issues of variable speed permanent magnet synchronous generator (PMSG) connected to grid as per prevailing grid standards during healthy and fault conditions. The variable speed operation of PMSG has been demonstrated while feeding the real power to the grid keeping DC link voltage constant. Further, the fault ride-through capability of PMSG has been demons... View full abstract»

    A robust generalized predictive controller (GPC) with a disturbance observer for a permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) is presented. The proposed GPC controller combines the linear predictive control techniques together with the disturbance observer, which is designed to take into account the load torque variations and uncertain electrical and mechanical parameters. Stability of the closed-l... View full abstract»
