    Implementing electric energy storage in distribution networks requires that the input and output of the storage units be controlled in a manner to achieve maximum economic benefit. This paper outlines an algorithm that ensures that the battery operate near or at its highest economic potential given predictions of Locational Marginal Pricing (LMP) and the time profile of demand. This is accomplishe... View full abstract»

    The efficiency concept becomes present at all levels of electric motors design, manufacturing and repairing activity. New legislations including Energy Independence Security Act and similar will effectively impose a new design constraint: efficiency of induction machines (IM). Various motor management programs promoted by the utilities, new standards will also closely monitor efficiency of the rep... View full abstract»

    Since 2007, farm-based biogas utilizing small synchronous generation has emerged in Ontario. Initial attempts at grid connection revealed several costly barriers. First, a requirement for proponents to pay for consequential upgrades to distribution infrastructure was mitigated through an amendment to the Ontario Distribution Code. Second, a requirement for transfer-trip to protect against feeder i... View full abstract»

    This paper deals with dynamic modelling and control of wind power units in an offshore wind farm with a dc system, consisting of permanent magnet synchronous generators, diode-bridge rectifiers and dc/dc converters. Such an integration offers a robust structure well-suited for offshore wind power applications. A simplified yet accurate model for a wind power unit is proposed and validated for the ...

    This article provides a robust network topology processor for state estimators that utilizes both conventional and/or PMU measurements. The emphasis is on the involvement of PMU measurements in topology processing. Building on top of the state of the art, an algorithm is proposed in a way to cover the limitations of current approaches and at the same time to suggest new features. The topology proc...

    Many simulations in power systems analysis contain an AC grid which is solved using linearized power flow methods. This paper extends the known DC optimal power flow method for AC grids for use in combined AC and HVDC grids. Future studies would now incorporate in their simulations combined AC and HVDC grids. This paper describes the additions made to the algorithm and the influence of the soft pe... View full abstract»

    A nation of nanogirds could offer us many opportunities in energy management, yet it presents several challenges. The key advantageous feature of nanogrids is the localized distributed control where all allocations are done by loads. Combining this key feature with the e-mobility potentials in supporting the grid, we propose a novel decentralized distributed scheme for coordinating the charging of... View full abstract»

    Modern electricity supply and distribution systems are evolving to integrate communications technologies and intelligent devices into what is broadly known as a Smart Grid. One area of Smart Grid development is the encouragement of a Smart Home where local electricity generation, storage, intelligent thermostats and electric vehicles can interact with home owners and the Smart Grid.

    Every system, however big or small, is always a part of a bigger system and in turn consists of a number of smaller subsystems. This is true for both natural and technical systems. According to Systems Architecture, in order to be successful, any complex technical system has to take into account its place in the hierarchy of other systems, as well as interdependency between the components of the s...

    The proposed grid connected dispatch-able operating modes for hydrogen production from renewable energy sources is designed to compensate for short duration system black out as a result of renewable sources intermittency. The controller sensory components observe, in real time, the incoming energy changes and compare it with the system demand and level of stored fuel. The controller output command...

    This paper presents a new load frequency control (LFC) design using the coefficient diagram method (CDM). The CDM technique has been designed such that the effect of the uncertainty due to governor and turbine parameters variation and load disturbance is reduced. A frequency response dynamic model of a single-area power system is introduced, and physical constraints of the governors and turbines a... View full abstract»

    The mass introduction of solid-state converters used in green energy sources (solar/wind) and modern loads (electric vehicles, smart appliances) results in many power quality challenges. Utility assets ranging from distribution apparatus to power protection and control devices can potentially be affected by poor power quality. This includes power transformers and monitoring instruments (current an... View full abstract»

    With more modern power loads and green energy sources being introduced to the market every day, the existing power grid is becoming increasingly strained. Compounding this problem is aging utility infrastructure and consistent growth in energy demand. Such stresses are applied across major utility assets (transformers, transmission lines, feeders) as well as protection/control apparatus. To accomm... View full abstract»
