    This article presents the modeling and control of the integration of a StatCom (static-synchronous compensator) with SMES (superconducting magnetic energy storage system) and its dynamic response to system oscillations caused by a three-phase fault. It has been shown that the StatCom-SMES combination can be very effective in damping power system oscillations. Adding energy storage enhances the per... View full abstract»

    This article describes a proof-of-concept development for a 7.5 kW gen-set in a family of military gen-sets in the 5 to 60 kW range. Several power electronic converters have been implemented in the design of this proof-of-concept gen-set that is lighter, smaller, and more fuel efficient than conventional fixed-speed gen-sets. The unit also has the flexibility of several selectable voltage and freq... View full abstract»

  • Mind your P's and Q's [power-quality events capture, data acquisition system]

    Publication Year: 2003, Page(s):55 - 63
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3029 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper reviews the evolution of data-acquisition systems and the use of triggering to capture power-quality events. Triggers characterize the events and provide unique methods of data sorting. They make capturing data easier. They make sorting data easier. They make analysis easier and faster. The drawback is that they may lead to fast/false (oversimplified) conclusions. There is also the dang... View full abstract»

    This article has discussed improvements in cost/benefit and flexibility of both SCADA systems and corporate networks that can be achieved by combining the goals of the two onto a single, multipurpose network based on IP protocols. This allows the cost-justifications for these functions to taken collectively, making the combined networking project more economically viable. Among these cost/benefit ... View full abstract»

    There are a number of functional protection areas on paper mill generators 20 years or older that have significant shortcomings when compared to current IEEE recommended generator-protection practices. This article identifies these protection areas and the risks of not addressing the shortcomings. It also points out the advantages of using multifunction digital relaying to upgrade generator protec... View full abstract»

    The California energy crisis has brought electric power deregulation to the forefront for electricity users in the USA. Could what happened in California occur in other states? Process industries are asking themselves what they can do to prepare for the consequences of electric power deregulation in the United States. This article gives manufacturers an overview of the current electric power indus... View full abstract»

    Multifunction microprocessor-based relays are commonly used in modern installations due to the many advantages they offer, such as communications, measurements, simplified wiring, self monitoring, and reduced space requirements. A reliable protection scheme is very important in order to protect capital equipment and operating personnel and reduce down time by selectively clearing faults. Back-up p... View full abstract»
