    Efficient control of power systems is becoming increasingly difficult as they gain in complexity and size. By considering a power grid and a communication infrastructure as a multiplex network, we propose an automatic control strategy that regulates the mechanical power output of the generators based on information obtained via communication links (wireless or wired). An algorithm that optimizes s... View full abstract»

  • Hybrid Controller for Wind Turbine Generators to Ensure Adequate Frequency Response in Power Networks

    Converter-interfaced power sources (CIPS) are hybrid control systems as they may switch between multiple operating modes. Due to increasing penetration, the hybrid behavior of CIPS, such as wind turbine generators (WTGs), may have significant impact on power system dynamics. In this paper, the frequency dynamics under inertia emulation and primary support from WTG is studied. A mode switching for ... View full abstract»

    Power grids normally operate at some stable operating condition where power supply and demand are balanced. In response to emergency situations, load shedding is a prevailing approach where local protective devices are activated to cut a suitable amount of load to quickly rebalance the supply demand and hopefully stabilize the system. This traditional emergency control results in interrupted servi... View full abstract»

  • Distributed Power Control for Transient Stability of Multimachine Power Systems

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):383 - 392
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (10267 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Transient stability is a key problem in power systems. Conventional methods enhancing the transient stability are always based on local information with a prior knowledge of an equilibrium point that may not be available for large disturbances. This paper puts forward a distributed power controller for improving transient stability of multimachine power systems. The distributed controller depends ... View full abstract»

  • Which Generation Unit Should be Selected as Control Leader in Secondary Frequency Control of Microgrids?

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):393 - 402
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1045 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, we propose a novel metric to choose control leaders in secondary frequency control of microgrids. The microgrid, as the building block of distributed generation systems, is assumed to be composed of both synchronous and inverter-connected generation units, e.g., renewable sources. Here, we formulate the stability analysis of secondary cooperative control in microgrids. To control th... View full abstract»

  • An Effective Method for Low-Frequency Oscillations Damping in MultiBus DC Microgrids

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):403 - 412

    This paper proposes a new active method for low frequency (LF) current/power oscillations damping in droop-controlled dc microgrids. Since, LF oscillations are mainly affected by droop controllers of voltage controlled (VC) DGs, detailed small-signal analysis of VC-DGs is provided. Analysis shows that each droop-controlled VC-DG creates a pair of LF complex conjugate zeros. In the proposed method,... View full abstract»

    Resilience of power grids is a problem of tremendous practical and theoretical relevance. In this work, we model a power grid as a complex network of coupled oscillators. We investigate the robustness of synchronization, associated with the normal operating regime of the network, to partial malfunctioning of the nodes. Differently from previous efforts on power grid resilience, node malfunctioning... View full abstract»

    We propose a framework employing stochastic differential equations to facilitate the long-term stability analysis of power grids with intermittent wind power generations. This framework takes into account the discrete dynamics, which play a critical role in the long-term stability analysis, incorporates the model of wind speed with different probability distributions, and also develops an approxim...

    The “Stuxnet” event and the Ukraine blockout event caused by cyberattacks have shown that it is very important for power systems to implement proactive cyber defense. With the construction of energy internet, the terminal-edge accessing proactive defense technology of energy internet has drawn lots of attentions. This paper constructed the proactive defense model of energy internet t... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a decentralized approach for frequency control and economic dispatch in smart grids with distributed energy resources and responsive demands. The approach is implemented based on a distributed multi-agent system, in which each agent works in a collaborative manner via local computation and peer to peer communication. The approach is comprised of two strategies. A consensus-base... View full abstract»

    Power swing blocker (PSB) is a complementary part of distance relay protection, that detects power swing, in order to prevent unintended operation of a distance relay. Unified power flow controller (UPFC) is used in power system to control both active and reactive powers and its operation during power swing influences the performance of PSB. In this paper, two traditional methods for detecting pow... View full abstract»
