    This paper investigates the use of a superconducting magnetic energy storage (SMES) unit to improve the performance of an ac/dc power system. In this context, investigations have been conducted on a large turbine-generator unit connected to a high-voltage direct current (HVDC) system. The impact of HVDC converter station faults on the torsional torques induced in turbine-generator shafts with and ... View full abstract»

    It appears that, until now, no work has been reported on evaluating the operational impacts of large photovoltaic generators (PVGs) embedded in a high-voltage grid system. To meet this goal, the authors have proposed in this paper that the pulsewidth-modulated inverter that interfaces a PVG with a grid Bus be modelled in terms of its control parameters in the load flow analysis. This will then pro... View full abstract»

    This paper is on the short-term thermal scheduling (STTS) problem, particularly concerning the new competitive and environmentally constrained electricity supply industry. On the one hand, within the electricity market, STTS has evolved from a minimum-cost policy in state-owned monopolistic companies to a profit-based policy under market conditions. On the other hand, as a consequence of growing e... View full abstract»

    Overvoltages in low voltage (LV) feeders with high penetration of photovoltaics (PV) are usually prevented by limiting the feeder's PV capacity to very conservative values, even if the critical periods rarely occur. This paper discusses the use of droop-based active power curtailment techniques for overvoltage prevention in radial LV feeders as a means for increasing the installed PV capacity and ...

  • On the Determination of Battery Energy Storage Capacity and Short-Term Power Dispatch of a Wind Farm

    Publication Year: 2011, Page(s):148 - 158

    A methodology on the design of a wind farm battery energy storage system to realize power dispatchability is described. Based on the statistical long-term wind speed data captured at the farm, a dispatch strategy is proposed which allows the battery capacity to be determined so as to maximize a defined service lifetime/unit cost index of the energy storage system. Also, the application of the disp... View full abstract»

    This paper presents the analyzed results of a permanent-magnet synchronous generator-based microturbine generator (MTG) system connected to a distribution system through an AC-to-DC converter and a DC-to-AC inverter. The employed mathematical model based on a dq-axis reference frame is derived to establish the complete dynamic equations of the studied MTG system for simulating the characteristics ...

  • A Study of Optimal Nonfirm Wind Capacity Connection to Congested Transmission Systems

    As wind is a low capacity factor source of power generation, a nonphysically firm connection strategy is key to its cost-effective and timely integration to presently constrained transmission networks. This paper, therefore, outlines the design and study of an optimal nonfirm wind capacity allocation model. While a precise statistical representation of wind power variations and geographical interd... View full abstract»

  • Correlations Between Large-Scale Solar and Wind Power in a Future Scenario for Sweden

    Future power systems are likely to include large amounts of variable power generation such as solar and wind power. As a variable output has to be balanced by the power system's reserves, it is important to study the time variability, coincidence, and correlations between power sources. The effect of output smoothing from dispersion of wind power plants is well established, but there is a need to ... View full abstract»

    Nonphysically firm wind generation connections (i.e., those to which curtailment can apply) may be necessary for significant wind integration to congested transmission networks. A study of factors influencing this associated wind energy curtailment is, therefore, of timely importance. In this paper, the wind curtailment estimation effects of natural inter-yearly wind profile variability, system de... View full abstract»

    In this paper, a financial valuation method for energy hubs with conversion, storage, and demand-side management (DSM) capabilities is proposed. An energy hub is an integrated system of units, e.g., a combined heat and power plant and a heat storage, which allows the conversion and storage of multiple energy carriers. In this paper, an extended energy hub model is presented which additionally take... View full abstract»
