    Resistance welders are a source of voltage fluctuations and flicker in industrial power distribution systems. The high-reactance welding transformer that limits the welding current creates a low power-factor load. With hundreds of welders, factories may use synchronized welding cycles that lead to annoying flicker. Other facilities use random timing to prevent flicker, but suffer deep voltage-sags...

    A novel approach of power factor correction (PFC) with a high-frequency resonant energy tank for the DC-link inverter is proposed. As compared with the conventional PFC techniques, this approach is advantageous of lower current stress, lower switching losses, and higher control flexibility. With carefully designed circuit parameters, the proposed topology can exhibit high power factor. The adopted... View full abstract»

    Energy limitations associated with unconventional energy sources e.g., photovoltaic and wind power) can play an important role in capacity adequacy evaluation of present and future electric system configurations. Solar photovoltaic power plants are electric power sources whose output depends on natural factors that are statistically interdependent of the load. Photovoltaic (PV) plants have the sig...

    Many owners of distributed resources such as synchronous industrial plant or commercial facility generators (ICG) are concerned about the requirements for protective relaying when connecting to a local utility. The connection may only be for a short transfer time of a few seconds during paralleling for periodic testing. A tendency is to look at the consequences of just their own ICG trying to serv...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (961 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper provides insight on how to prevent nuisance-trips from occurring on distributed generation (DG). The protection system at the DG interconnection must provide security to allow the DG to be connected to the utility grid, as well as reliably disconnect the DG from the utility grid for a variety of reasons. Most protection systems are set to trip the DG offline in less than one second, and... View full abstract»

    This paper addresses the types of motor bus transfer (MBT) available, explores its technical challenges, and analyzes the creation of proper settings when implementing a MBT system for power plant spinning motor auxiliary buses or industrial plant spinning motor buses. Classic approaches are described and conditions are explored that make these transfers proper or improper. Advanced implementation... View full abstract»

  • ARC flash hazard: the simplified model of ARC current

    Cited by:  Papers (6)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1009 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    A simplified approach of arc modeling is suggested to facilitate the study of the dynamic behavior of the arc current. The behavior of the arc current is obtained as an extension of bolted short-circuit analysis; the waveform of the arc voltage is limited to the fundamental harmonic in phase with the fault current, considering the resistive characteristic of the arc. The arc current calculations b... View full abstract»

    A typical electrical system and equipment layout is designed to conform with certain standards such as National Fire Protection Association's NFPA 70 or International Electrotechnical Commission's IEC 60364-1. The occupational safety and health administration also sets forth design safety standards for electrical systems under 29 CFR Subpart S 1910.302-308. These documents contain fundamental prin...

    The standard IEC 61024 provides information for the design of lightning protection of structures (LPS). In determining the position of the air-termination system two methods are generally suggested: the protective angle method and the rolling sphere method. The paper discusses some additional criteria for the LPS with reference to a case study of a complex of strategic buildings constituted by exi... View full abstract»

    The development of wind generation has rapidly progressed over the last decade. With the advance in wind turbine technologies, wind energy has become competitive with other fuel-based generation resources. The fluctuation of wind, however, makes it difficult to optimize the use of wind power generation. Current practice ignores the possible available capacity of the wind generation during the unit...

    Corona discharge (CD) and partial discharge (PD) indicate early stages of insulation problems in motors and generators. Early detection of CD/PD will enable better coordination and planning of resources such as maintenance personnel, ordering of parts, etc. Most importantly, one can prevent catastrophic failures during normal operations. In decades, on-line PD measurement has been used to find loo... View full abstract»

    This paper investigates the load composition by load survey study and predicts the wind power generation with a probabilistic network for an isolated power system. The power consumption by each customer-class with the application of load patterns and the total power consumption of all customers within the same class can be obtained and calculated. Probabilistic neural network (PNN) solves the wind... View full abstract»
