  • On the statistical testing of solid insulation systems

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):55 - 57

    Solid insulating materials are not self-restoring due to electrical discharges; a separate test piece is needed for each individual test. Even with no discharge observed, polarization and conductivity processes can produce space charges that exist for a long time and that can affect the results of a subsequent test on the same test piece. The solution is to use one test piece per stress. Since sol... View full abstract»

  • A power system library for educational use

    Educational institutions are difficult places to maintain and use software developed as part of postgraduate work due to the transient nature of the postgraduate population. One solution has been to have a sufficient number of postgraduates so that there is overlap and the departing postgraduates can train the new postgraduates on the software developed. However, postgraduate recruitment problems ... View full abstract»

  • Frequency-domain observations on definitions of reactive power

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):46 - 48
    Cited by:  Papers (19)

    This letter provides a unified exposition of various definitions of reactive (or inactive) power. In particular, it presents a comparative frequency-domain analysis of definitions used in power system studies and in electric drives (the so-called instantaneous reactive power). Concepts are illustrated on a common trample View full abstract»

  • Environment, safety, and health impact of HTS power equipment

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):12 - 15
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (324 KB)

    In this article, the authors are concerned with the potential environment, safety and health (ES&H) consequences of successful engineering, not the engineering itself nor the economic benefits to the utility customer or utility owner who uses high-temperature superconducting power equipment. Consistent with the general aspects of ES&H, this description is qualitative or semiquantitative View full abstract»

  • Triggered-vacuum switch-based fault-current limiter

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):51 - 53
    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (212 KB)

    A new fault current limiter (FCL) is proposed based on triggered vacuum switch (TVS). The TVS-based FCL (TFCL) is mainly composed of a capacitor, a current-limiting reactor connected with the capacitor in series and a TVS connected with the capacitor in parallel. With the TVS in the off or on state, the whole TFCL behaves as a conventional series compensation or fault current limitation, respectiv... View full abstract»

    The paper elucidates on some of the potential systems benefits and provides an update of progress in major high-temperature superconductor (HTS) transformer development programs worldwide. It begins with background sections on earlier low-temperature-superconductor (LTS) transformer developments and on transformer losses and efficiencies and their influence on total owning costs (TOC) as one of th...

  • Analysis of unstable solutions in a single-phase AC/DC converter

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):49 - 51
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (196 KB)

    The study of harmonic instabilities in an AC/DC power system is presented in this letter. An existing frequency domain methodology is modified to assess the phenomena produced by this harmonic interaction. A set of analytical equations is derived to compute the commutation time taking place in the single-phase converter. Suitable guidelines are suggested for effective overlap angle initializations...
